Item arrived very well packaged. Very pleased with the Engine. Definitely recommend. Custmer service has a great since of humor! Lol
Well packed. Only assembly is to attach wheels. Beautifully made. Be careful not to touch the alcohol wick to the cylinder when inserting or removing the fuel jar. Make sure there is no other moisture on the cylinder to avoid cracking it when heat is applied. I use 95% denatured alcohol which provides the correct temperature. This is not a children's toy but it is a great educational piece and/or conversation piece.
Operates with precision. Performs well with full function of Sterling Engine.
I purchased the Stirling Engine Vehicle as a gift for my nine year old grand-nephew. My wife thought he was a little young to handle the open flame. In hindsight, she was probably right. (Lesson learned: always listen to your wife!) I thought, nah, this would be a great learning experience for him. PRICELESS!
The sterling engine vehicle works flawlessly and vigorously. I was extremely pleased with the quality of the workmanship and the materials used. This was a gift to my young grandson, and although it must be used with adult supervision for now, he greatly enjoys it. It is constructed to last a lifetime with proper use, and will undoubtedly be treasured by him for many years to come.
