I completed my Stirling Engine - Link.

Having built a steam engine previously really helped. This construction was easier machining-wise; I only had to drill some holes and make crankdiscs, that's about all machining that was required. But making it work was somehow trickier. The work it produces is miniscule and every little thing counts so a lot of tweaking was required.

I really like how it worked out. Still, I can't run it on heat of a palm alone, as you can do with some LTD Stirlings. If anyone has ideas how to make it more efficient, please tell.
