Not exactly the item I ordered : the cylinder is not transparent as shown in pics
I ordered this item mainly for education purpose: I was interested in the glass cylinder that makes the piston visible.
The kit I received does not include a glass cylinder but a brass one. The engine works well but that was not the only intent.
The most disappointing is the lack of answer from Stirlingkit after I contacted them. Well they responded several times... to tell me they will "check & come back". More than 1 month old...
Good product and good service. Promptly delivered 😎
Great little steam engine.
This is a low priced option to get you started in steam engines, it runs like a charm. Looks great as well.
Historical master piece
Historical piece of history & very interesting & satisfying to build & operate as I find that building my own collection of early steam history in models, very satisfying.........
A wonderful little kit, it took my 10 year old and me just an hour or so to build. The first time we tried it out, we were unable to get it to work. But after increasing the heat by using a larger reservoir for the alcohol fuel (an aluminum tea candle holder w/ magnet), it worked well. It is well fabricated, well designed, and fun to look at and run. Highly recommended. A note of caution, the ethanol fuel burns clear and is a fire hazard if it spills so supervision is important and it is best to run the engine on a non flammable table/bench.
