The Stirling Engine was invented by a Scottish minister Robert Stirling in 1816. It runs on very little energy, using an ingenious inter-cylinder air-exchange principle. The quality of the workmanship is immediately evident. The parts are brass and stainless steel, and all ball bearings and cylinders are precision machined. To operate the engine, simply fill the burner cup with alcohol and light it. One filling lasts about 30 minutes. The base is 4-1/4 x 6-1/4". These are also available as kits, allowing the pleasure and challenge of building one of these yourself. All parts are finished, and careful instructions are provided.
