wesome little engine! This is a very well built product. I bought this for my 11 year old nephew who likes science and anything with an engine. He absolutely loved this gift. I like it so much, I think i'm going to get one for myself too. I highly recommend!
I just got this in the mail and tried it out. Amazing! It's very well built, sturdy and precise. There were previous complaints of the alcohol burner moving with the vibration, well they heard your cries and have added a permanently attached metal ring to hold the burner in place. Be advised that you'll have to kick start the machine to get it to work by giving the flywheel a spin with your hand once the chamber heats up. Everything is high quality, a very sturdy and beautiful machine. I can't recommend it enough!
Awesome design of the burning lamp. The hole of the lamp is just avoid the lamp keep away from the tube when working.
I purchased this as a gift for someone who has everything. It is such a special item and so unique that I know they will love it.
The machine itself looks fantastic, it has many polished components and doesn't have the backyard she'd assembled appearance.
Great model to demonstrate the Stirling Engine principle to young people. Works very well!
