Plans, projects and how-to's for home machinists

Simple Coke Can Stirling Engine

This Stirling engine can be built without machine tools or machinist skills.  It uses inexpensive and easy-to-find materials and it looks like it is easy to make.  I wanted to include it for our many visitors who aren’t machinists but who come here looking for plans for Stirling engines they can build.  You can find the instructions for building it on “Scrap to Power”.  You’ll also find some other simple Stirling engines you can make, along with some other interesting projects.

Random Quote

“An inventor is simply a person who doesn\'t take his education too seriously. You see, from the time a person is six years old until he graduates from college he has to take three or four examinations a year. If he flunks once, he is out. But an inventor is almost always failing. He tries and fails maybe a thousand times. If he succeeds once then he\'s in. These two things are diametrically opposite. We often say that the biggest job we have is to teach a newly hired employee how to fail intelligently. We have to train him to experiment over and over and to keep on trying and failing until he learns what will work.”
