Cheap or DIY piston/cylinder for Stirling Engine
« on: April 27, 2007, 04:36:17 AM »
I'm interested in building a small sterling engine for testing some ideas, but can't seem to get off on the right foot. Does anyone know of a cheap but sealed piston/cylinder combo or an easy way to make a DIY piston/cylinder. I don't want to use the rubber balloon gasket method for the proof of concept/tin can engine plans that are floating around. I need something that can handle more compression and heat.

Any help/ideas/inspiration would be greatly appreciated.

These people are up for sending free samples. Why not study
their site with care, and give them a chance. You will need two
cylinder/piston combos, won't you?
