Introduction: Solar Stirling Engine Stand
I built this printed solar stirling engine from a construction manual from www.reprap-windturbine.com
The engine works really nice, only the stand is very weak. When I run the engine outside in the garden and there is wind it shakes and sometimes it tilts with the original stand.
All pictures and STL.-files for printing you find in the downloawd.
The pictures show the old stand (black) and my new design (blue). The new one is much more stable in the wind, especially when the big solar reflectors are built on.

1 x Upper tube
2 x Lower tube (Cut 4 x M4 threads. See picture!)
