    LTD Stirling

    I built one years ago the power piston is graphite in an acrylic cylinder seems to work.. the displacer shaft is just a hole in long (1 inch) acrylic, brass shaft. Runs best on a bowl of ice. (Built from a photo)

    Electrical question-blade welder

    Don't try to run it on 220V. You need a transformer 220V in and 440V out. 10 amps at 440V equals 20 amps at 220V.

    That looks like the one I have on my mini lathe. Works pretty good. Could use more tool holders is all. Gary

    Clear Acrylic Help Please.

    Step drills also work great. The key is the rake angle. You can mod a twist drill by reducing rake to 90 °.

    Spark Plug threads in Aluminium heads

    On aircraft engines we take the plugs out hot every year or 50 hours very rarely is there a problem. When they go back in we use a grafite based antisize sold by Champion and torqued with a calibrated tool. I think the special spark plug antisize is the key. Gary
