well, i started drawing and getting grumpy...

now ive started hacking up bits of alloy and brass and...getting grumpy :wee:
anyways, just a sneak peak of the basic design for my first stirling.

think it will run?

obviously the pistons arent drawn yet... easier to make than draw...

a day or two of making a mess and now i have...hmmm. two conrods, two pistons lapped into their sleeves, the heatsink cylinder.

a crank! a case annnnd a front/main bearing :) oh what a fit :)

i havent measured ANYTHING :)

this could work against me in the end but so far, so good :)

and honestly, havent cnc'd anything but the conrods so maybe im on the wrong site :p

oh well :) the cold head will need the mill :)


now... cold head and the whole hot side, and a few holes for studs... and maybe...just maybe...

(yeah yeah, rough. for now im happy to make a runner, not a work of art...)
