I've not seen any build threads on the various forums that I visit so can only assume it its not a very popular engine or all the builders are keeping quiet. The Ryder and Robinson engines seem to be more popular when it comes to casting sets for hot air engines.

I've just built this Stirling hot air engine , based on the Heinrici engine, all fabricated except the flywheels,

7" wheels, 21" to top of wheels, coke can for size comparison, heat is a small Primus 8842 propane burner,

Runs lovely, water cooled cold end is aluminium, hot end is brass with copper end,

Has been a nice project.

Here's a question for the Stirling engine experts out there,.............Will a stirling engine "scale up" ?

I've just built the engine in this thread, it has 7" flywheels, I have in stock a couple of 14" flywheels and would like to build another engine twice the size ,

My question is will it scale up and run the same as the smaller one, with a larger burner of course.

OK I will make a response and maybe somebody who actually knows something might respond. a liitle discussion in that thread may be of use to you.

I googled "scale up stirling engine" - have been pondering that question recently.
