Assembly UFO Spin Suspension Hero's Steam Engine with Copper Boiler
.The flying saucer shape full of science fiction, novel and unique, silent steam engine model design, full of power. A metal handicraft with great retro beauty, giving people curiosity and unlimited reverie. .The steam engine model is carefully made of all metal, each part is finely processed, rich in metallic luster, and each part is precisely matched, upholding the craftsmanship, full texture, and quality assurance. . The cylinder liner is a sheet-shaped heat dissipation structure. The liquor lamp, bracket and bottom plate are designed in one piece. Both ends of the bracket are equipped with a large alloy flywheel and a small flywheel; high-precision imported bearings are used between the flywheel shaft and the bracket. This model is in the form of separate parts to exercise the hands-on ability. The all-metal structure can be repeatedly disassembled and assembled.
2. Start-up steps 1. Put the model on the horizontal surface; add some alcohol into the alcohol lamp. Use 95% alcohol (not included) for fuel, do not use other oils. 2. Light the alcohol lamp; turn the flywheel by hand until the flywheel can automatically rotate 3. In the process of start, move the alcohol lamp to let the model run to the best 4. The height of the alcohol lamp wick should be no less than 15 mm, and you can adjust the wick height to achieve the best operation. 3. Matters needing attention 1. When heating, do not touch with your hands cylinder and heating portion. 2. Avoid other liquid substances come into contact with cylinders in case of cylinder rustiness; extinguish alcohol lamp after finishing the demonstration. 4. Maintenance plans (if the model is not running very well) 1. Check if there is enough alcohol in the alcohol lamp. 2. Check if the small and big wheel jackscrews loose or not. 3. Too high temperature in the air cylinder because of the continuous heating for a period of time will affect the performance of the product. 4. Check the valve position: the highest position of the flapper valve (2) is to cover one fourth of the valve port. 5. Check if the angle is correct or not: when the piston (7) lies in the innermost of the air cylinder, the small jackscrew (3) hole should be just facing the positioning port (6). If the position is wrong, please loosen the jackscrew; then tightly fix the jackscrew in the correct position.

This was purchased for a young man to assemble. This was not possible for him from the paper plans, due to his age. There was an assembly video that showed step by step how to put it together. I saw it once but when I went to find it again, it was nowhere to be found! The video link should be included in the plans!
Very sturdy and seemingly well made for ease of assembly. Goes together perfectly and looks really cool too
Fun to Watch
Engine is well build and fun to play with. Kids love messing with it. I have bought at least 10 items from this company, and all are quality constructed.
Very easy to build. Very good material. Thanks
Assembly UFO Spin Suspension Steam Stirling Engine with Copper Boiler
I expected this engine to be fun but I was disappointed
This engine is well built and has a lovely finish. I expected it to be fun to change the flywheel to see what effect it has on the engine speed and also fun
to see the small "generator" light up the bulb. Unfortunately the engine did not arrive with the extra flywheel nor was an allen key included, so the flywheel could not be changed. Also the bulb did not light up. When running this engine can only produce about 2.5V, so the 5V bulb is never going to work. A nice example of an alpha type sterling engine, but I cannot rate it more than 3 stars because of the missing items
The engine received was not the one shown on the website
This engine runs fantastic, the problem is that the engine they sent does NOT match the item in the picture. I specifically wanted a thermoacoustic stirling engine with an "extended" hot tube. What they sent was the standard "short" hot tube variety. I already have 3 engines of this style, if I wanted another I could have purchased the one from this site for $23.99 or $19.99. Instead, I paid $29.99. This engine comes with bearings in the flywheel mount so it runs exceptionally fast. It is a great engine overall, but unfortunately not the engine in the sales pictures. Based of performance this engine is "5 star", however Sterlingkit should never substitute engines without customer authorization first
Well I have built this little engine was fun to build took me from 11pm to round 7 am the next morning as I was taking my time going to put it on a stand then start it up just waiting for the stand/base for it
A nicely packed kit love how the box is wood and everything is packed in black foam trays instructions are online but the contents are in plastic box’s. Like screw’s nuts and everything else needed to build it
I sent you an email describing my research and asking to speak with your engineers about reversing the rotation. I have had no response. I am a retired electrical engineer researching chirality and Tesla's concepts on Aether and gravity.
