I had to use whatever I had lying around to try and build it, so my materials list may not be the best, or the right way to do it.
I had a good look at a number of Stirlings on the net before I began. It was obvious to me that the most difficult part of the manufacture would be the sealed piston assembly and the linkages. These were cast using the resin process in one of my other instructables.
I couldn't get the video to embed correctly, so here's a link to the Youtube video:
Step 1: Materials
I used the following materials to build this Engine.
Two hard drive platters from a 3 1/2" HDD
A 10p piece
A 2mm steel rod from an HP printer (scrap)
A 2.5mm brass tube (dunno where that came from)
A piece of 22mm (1") copper pipe
A plastic storage container (Tescos 78p)
A bit of sponge floor tile
Some resin and alginate
Odds and ends from old scrap printers
Various glues, solder etc.
My main goals were to assemble a working engine that looked nice without doing too much machining. Access to a drill press and possibly a small lathe would be an advantage.
Here are my main 'ingredients' from scrap.
