Eleven Stirling Engine Projects You Can Build

Authored by Jim R. Larsen

Here is a collection of eleven Stirling engine projects, including five new groundbreaking designs by Jim Larsen. Now you can build simple pop can Stirling engines that look sharp and run incredibly well. The air cooled pop can engines will run for hours over a simple candle flame. Unlike most pop can engines, these don't need ice for cooling, so there is no mess to clean up and they can be run almost anywhere. And the Quick and Easy Stirling Engine will have you running your first Stirling engine in just a few hours. Jim Larsen's original designs made for this collection include:

  • Single Chamber Pop Can Stirling Engine
  • Dual Chamber Pop Can Stirling Engine
  • Walking Beam Pop Can Stirling Engine
  • Horizontal Pop Can Stirling Engine
  • Quick and Easy Stirling Engine
