Stirling and Hot Air Engine Materials and Kits. How to build and design Stirling Engines.
The Stirling or hot air engine is known for its near-efficiency in converting heat into mechanical movement This type of engine works by the contract of heat and cold reacting on a sealed gas like helium or hydrogen. The hot and cold comes in cycles and turns into movement. The pressure goes up as the gas heats, which gains the power for the engine. Then it is cooled and the pressure drops. The cycle is repeated powering the engine.
Because no gas escapes to pollute the air the Stirling Engine is a clean power source and will convert any temperature difference directly into movement.
Rev. Robert Stirling and later with his brother James assisting him, the first Stirling engine was invented in 1816. In their day a safer engine was needed because of unsafe boilers used to power the engines.

The greater the temperature difference between hot and cold and the more easily the engine can run. Small Stirling engines have been built just for show and can run on a small temperature contrast as low as 15C or 59F. Even the difference between the palm of a hand verses the surrounding air can run a stirling engine.
Here you can find small Stirling engines for sale. Also Manuals and books can be found that will assist you in building your own Stirling engine. Mechanical Models. Stirling Engine Design Manual.
On a side note: It seems this could be the wave of the future. The trick is producing energy from low energy sources that will help solve some of the world's problems especially in third world countries. Of course the country has to be stable and not fighting any wars for this to work. But once things get stable people can go in and make a difference.
There is enough food and energy produced to supply everyone in the world but selfishness blocks the help. One organization that is working hard to help people around the world is ADRA. They go into poor countries and teach the people how to work for themselves and share with each other. They also rush in and help at any disasters around the world. Just check their website and see what they are up to now.

Dear Stirling Engines Fans,
I am writing to you in behalf of your Heavenly Father. He is seeking you like a lost sheep. You remember the Bible story? It is about a shepherd who has 100 sheep. But when he brings the sheep home one night, one is missing. He then leaves the 99 sheep and goes out into the wilderness until he finds that lost sheep.
In this parable the shepherd goes out to search for the one lost sheep-the very least that can be numbered. So if there had been but one lost soul, Christ would have died for that one. To read more click Lost Sheep
