    A stacked Gamma type Stirling. Noted features are the Ross Yoke drive and a diaphragm power piston in an uncommon horizontal position. [ame]http://youtu.be/twyKNMj8bEQ[/ame]

    Very nice indeed. Love the Ross linkage out where you can see it in all its glory.

    I guess the diaphragm power "piston" does away with the need for glass tubes that are perfectly round and straight on the bore.

    Hey...you must have been there too with trying to match a piston to a "not so uniformly round" test tube! :mad: Went with a diaphragm after a poor match with my last 2 Pyrex tubes.
