More LTD Stirling Engines You Can Build Without a Machine Shop
Jim R. Larsen
Here is everything you need to know to build your own low temperature differential (LTD) Stirling engines without a machine shop. These efficient hot air engines will run while sitting on a cup of hot water, and can be fine-tuned to run from the heat of a warm hand. Four engine projects are included. Each project includes a parts list, detailed drawings, and illustrated step-by-step assembly instructions. The parts and materials needed for these projects are easily obtained from local hardware stores and model shops, or ordered online.
Jim Larsen’s innovative approach to Stirling engine design helps you achieve success while keeping costs low. All of the engines described in this book are based on a conventional pancake style LTD Stirling engine format. These projects introduce the use of Teflon tubing as an alternative to expensive ball bearings. An entire chapter is devoted to the research and testing of various materials for hand crafted bearings.
The plans in this book are detailed and complete. This collection of engine designs is a stand-alone companion to Jim Larsen’s first book, “Three LTD Stirling Engines You Can Build Without a Machine Shop.”
