Low Temperature Differential Stirling Engine: Conclusion

I had a blast making the Stirling Engine! In fact, I learned how to use a lathe to make this engine

In making this project, in addition to a lathe, I used a drill press, lasercutter, hot-wire foam cutter, hole tap, mitre saw, sabre saw, (lots of) sandpaper, bolt-cutters, and a hand drill. I followed James R. Senft’s design and measurements and started with raw materials (pictured above.) Below is a video of the engine working off of the heat of a coffee cup. I would recommend this project to anyone looking to improve their machining skills!
