Hi Everyone my name is Jim I live in the frozen North called Canada. I'm a Heavy Duty Mechanic that has been pulling wrenches on big Diesel engines for the last thirty years. Last count I think I've done around 260 rebuilds and have worked on about eight different brands of engines. I'm here not only because I love engines but since I've seen the Stirling engine I've got to make one. I have a Taig lathe with a milling attachment with various cutting and milling bits, I also have a wide assortment of modelling tools that I use on my boats. I believe I have the tools and ability to make a simple Sterling engine but no idea how to make one, so I'm looking for plans. I'm glad I found this site because I think it will be a great place for info and to pass the time.
