My first Beta stirling engine.
Looks nice, How well does the burner work, what type of fuel? What type of material did you make the hot cap from?
Thanks Chiptosser ! I use alcohol , hot cap : aluminium , (stainless steel : better ! I don't have tig welding machine...), displacer: aluminium, power piston : brass, cylinder : steel .
Runs great, nice work. One day I'll have a go at a Stirling of some sort.
Thanks Cogsy !! And I must be finished my project flame eater
do you have drawings of it?
I do not have a drawing , I just think in my head and do it, it sounds like selfish - BUT that is real !
I'm so sorry .
If you want the parameters of it .... I will give it to you.
Congratulations on a nice engine
Good job. Your engine is very similar to one designed by Thorn Mayes and published in HSM magazine, Sept.-Oct., 1983. It was my first Stirling engine and I still run it occasionally.
Thanks fcheslop ,WOB !
