Stepper stirling motor

Little by little and article by article we are increasing our little corner about stirling engines.

This time we found an article with the detailed construction of the Stirling LTD engine in makezine (the link is broken) luckily we keep the content. This engine is LTD, which means that it is designed to work with small temperature differentials.

We have a complete guide on Stirling engines, if you want to delve into this exciting world it is very interesting that you also learn a little about its history, why they work, what their cycles are, the types that there are etc.

Construction of a stirling engine. 

It is a machine in which you have to be quite meticulous in its construction. It is not very complicated to reproduce it, but if we are careful we will obtain a much more fluid operation.

As you can see in the image, it is a type engine


How to build a Stirling engine

After starting to blog about the stirling machine, our collaborator, Jorge Rebolledo has sent us an exploded view of the construction of a machine that he has made inspired by a video found on youtube.

Because it is too big, we are going to divide the construction of the machine into three articles.

Here goes the first one.
