    Hi
    As I mentioned in a previous post my two granddaughters were working on Norm Jones Stirling engine. Rachel is 21 and got hers finished last May -

    Natalie is 19 and had a long break between semesters at college (working towards an MD) so she drove 2 hours to grandpa’s place this past week to finish her engine she started in 2014. She had a lot of fiddly things to make along with the graphite piston. She got it all assembled and other than having the timing not set the first try, it took off on the second as you can see in link.
