Introduction: My Second Stirling Engine


My second working stirling engine from tin cans 'n stuff, skip to about 1:10 if you just want the engine footage.

I laughed all the way.
The drama! The sounds!
This movie has everything.
Well, except how to actually MAKE it.

I appreciated the production values -- entertaining piece. Almost a study of how crude and inefficient a stirling can be and still run.

No, folks, don't skip to 1:10 - that first seventy seconds is brilliant.

I love the video editing done on this video, even went as far as to make "FX" sounds after the fact. I actually enjoyed when the engine was running, since it was a nice melodic song, and the motion of the stirling engine just fit well.

10/10 on it all, wish more could take the time you did for all their video's. Windows has come with free video editing software able to do this, since Windows XP.

If not that then....find something online *cough* .torrent *cough* *Cough*

It's a burnomatic mini torch... just FYI. I know since I have that one, and it's bigger angrier brother that can shoot a 4 inch blue cone flame!
