    A Beginner's Guide To Stirling Engines

    Awesome Instructable, even if I did have to look up IB and MYP. ;-)This is a Senft Stirling engine, first conceived and developed by Dr. J. R. Senft of University of Wisconsin River Falls, during a friendly competition with Dr. Ivo Kolin of University of Zagreb in the 1980's to build an engine that would run on the lowest temperature differential. Dr. Senft, an awesome machinist as well as a mathematician, was an inspiration to me as a teenager reading Live Steam magazine, and one of the reasons I became an engineer. A neat illustration of the engine and the story behind it is here: http://www.animatedengines.com/ltdstirling.htmlThanks and keep on making Instructables!
