New Kontax KS90T Solar Twin
« on: April 13, 2021, 12:43:04 pm »
Went to get my second shot this morning, then swung by Post Office. Knew it was coming but thought next week.
It's running on the warmth of my computer. Wonder when the copper one will show up.     
Hope you enjoy.

Very nice.

I have an early version of the single type.

Sits on my coffee most mornings.

Something majestic over these, running so smooth and silently, on just a minor temperature difference.

Congratulations Tommy, a neat addition indeed.
Cheers

Those are such high quality machines and the owner is a real stirling engine enthusiast.

Great engine, Tommy! I have a stainless version and when I got it, it was all seized up as someone spilled a Coke or Pepsi on it. I washed it carefully and it came to life nicely. I forget what the model number is, but if you can get you hands on the Kontax engine with a 6” displacer, you’ll love it. Sometimes I sit in the recliner and just let it run on my stomach. Lol
In the photo, the red Kontax is the normal sized LTD engine.
