IMHO This video is definitely worth watching.
YouTube- K. H. Stirling, stove, vacuum, test tube

The builder has done a very nice job using mostly simple items to build 10 very nice stirling engines and one vacuum engine. The Video is about 4.5 minutes long.
Hope you enjoy it,
Bob B.

I did that and those engines are truly works of art. Better than I could ever hope to do.
Still IMHO the ten engines in the first video prove that one does not need a machine shop to build working stirling engines so anybody, maybe even me :) can do it.
Thanks for sharing.
