Hi everyone. I'm 51 this year and got my first introduction to stirling engines back in 1980 when I was a school kid. I was more interested in model steam engines back then and my good friend and mentor Les Warnett helped me learn the design and machining process. These days I have a very successful company manufacturing performance turbo manifolds for cars and trucks. As such, I have many big, beautiful CNC machines at my disposal and I have started working on a design for a hot air engine that should be very powerful for its size. I'm sure most of you believe that anything that could be thought of has already been tried but i think I might have the advantage of fresh eyes. My hope is to create a powerful generator that is fuel efficient and very quiet running. Cheers to all you fellow innovators and hot air engine enthusiasts.

Hi everyone! I'm a 32 year old former professional futures trader who just can't seem to get away from building things. I do have a passion for stirling engines, but have focused solely on ones that incorporate the rhombic drive. I'm also heavily involved in thermoacoustics, the standing wave type engines, just for the fact of their simplicity, reliability, and lack of moving parts/sliding seals.

Howdy . I've been lurking for years and would like to express my gratitude for the knowledge that forum members have shared . I will post something as soon as I make that transition from the vaporware in my head to some real world hardware (the tricky part :wink: ). Thanks again folks .

Hi Oscar. I was in Venice year before last. Fascinating place. Actually my favorite place was the markets (fish). That was over whelming!!

Hello Everybody,

My eyes are bleeding from to much studying, but I finally have got to a point that I am confident enough to start something.

Just thought I would introduce myself and thank all that have contributed to this forum in the past, perhaps I can recipricate with details of my build.

I mention this because I do not see many "How To" or "This Is How I Did It" type threads. Is the any objection to cataloguing my progress, warts and all ?

I will post the start up details probably tomorrow and see what the response is.

In the meantime, thanks again. I would not have got here without you all.
