Speed-Controlled Single Cylinder Stirling Engine with Regulator Free Piston External Combustion Engine - Red
NOTE: This engine is out of stock now, we will restock it in February.
.This Stirling engine model is novel and unique, with a sophisticated wooden base. .The amount of air conduction can be adjustable with top knob to control the speed of Stirling engine, which is easy to observe the dynamics of the psiton .The main parts are made of aluminum alloy and brass, which are sturdy and durable. The heating cylinder is made of quartz glass, featuring low expansion coefficient and high temperature resistance. .Fuel: 95% alcohol (not included) should be prepared. Can not add water, kerosene, gasoline, lighter oil, liquor, etc. .Starting Method: Place the Stirling engine model on a horizontal table, add two-thirds of 95% alcohol to the alcohol lamp, ignite and heat for 30 seconds, then turn the flywheel, and the engine can run. .Working Principle: The Stirling engine outputs power through a cycle of cooling, compression, heat absorption, and expansion of the air in the cylinder. .Significance: Through hands-on operation, you can observe the operation process of the entire engine, understand the working principle of the Stirling engine more intuitively, and deepen your interest in learning physics. .Gift: It can be used as a high-end desktop decoration due to its superior quality and exquisite appearance, can also be used as an exquisite gift to your friends, family and others. .For Crowd: 14+

The unit is obviously well-made. It was well packaged. For the life of me I can’t make it run.
This is not a toy, it is very heavy and worked great, not to leave a small child with it as it does have a flame but what a gift to play with and enjoy for hours just watching it do what it does, just fun to watch and wonder how it works even though I do after much reading about it.
Definitely a cool little gadget
Fired up after a minute of heating. Runs much quieter than I expected. Arrived on time and double-boxed. May be buying more for the grand-kids.
Too cool! Perfect for the geek/engineer in anyone.
I'm a retired science teacher and I love all kinds of models and demo stuff. This piece is really beautiful and does actually work.
