Tarot brand Stirling engine
« on: May 01, 2019, 08:58:04 am »
Got this last year via Aliexpress - they have been listed on EBay but tend to be a bit more expensive.  Sizeable and solid piece, about 9 1/2 inches overall length and a 3 1/2 inch flywheel.  Beautifully finished, had it out for a fun run today, it's strong enough to run a Mamod workshop at reasonable pace and on a solid surface rather than a wobbly turntable it doesn't move around at all:

Recommended if anyone's looking for a decent size hot air motor.
