Very interesting forum. I hope that will help me to build my first stirling engine.
P.S. Please, excuse my bad english.

Don't worry about your English. I bet it's better than any other language I could use.

Feel free to ask any and all questions you might have.

Hi All: guess I am the newest one here, I have only received Jeff Larson’s book on LTD Steriling engines. And I do not know anything about them but will. I am on disability a just an old man with more time than money. And love to make things. I am a Life Member of the VFW Post 1674. And will have a lot of questions and will ask for a lot of help. :shock:

Hi,

I'm also a new member of stirlingengineforum.com :)
A week or two ago I made my first stirling engine (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9S5m61PfExY).
A very simple but working engine :)

In the future I would like to build more advanced and bigger stirling engines and I think I'm gonna need some help to realize it ^^

Cheers!

Hello,

It is good to see people pursuing this interest in Stirling engines, good luck to all and wishing everyone success.

Never give this up, it is important that we continue this effort.

Hi ya'll, I'm a land owner/farmer/logger in middle TN USA, I've been doing a lot of research and experimentation on various possible replacements for oil fired power for food production. I just got a notion to look at sterling engine technology, I remember seeing them in the Edmond science catalog many years ago.

Hi All,

I wanted to learn more about stirling engines hence signed up to the forum. I hope I can build one myself some day!!

I have already learned a few things but a lot more to learn.

Thanks,
Shah

Hi Ali, i think yoy'll find what your looking for if you read through a few threads. Afraid you have quite a bit to read there are a good number of pages. Ian S C

Ali, NO I would not recomend aluminium, its friction is too high. The ideal material is Graphite in a glass cylinder, a steel cylinder would be ok. Second (and cheaper) is cast iron in a cast iron cylinder, or with only a little more friction a steel cylinder,(just not steel on steel). Aluminium can be used if it is either given a microscopicly thin layer of Teflon / Xylan, or hard anodised, but thats getting a bit much.
Make the design and build an engineering science project, you can study the properties of the different materials, and the effects of heat, friction etc. Best wishes, see you further down the site. Ian S C
