Drinks Can Stirling Engine (Tutorial)

Hey everyone! After this weekend’s workshops we were left with a surplus of beer cans to play with.I believe it was Glyn or Amanda who suggested using them to create an ultra-efficient little mechanism called a ‘Stirling Engine’ (named after its creator, Scottish brainbox Robert Stirling). I found this tutorial online which seems fairly in-depth- if people are interested, we should definitely do this as a workshop!

Not only that but we also tossed around the idea of using the these little bundles of fun to power something interesting, possibly a circuit of some kind. Could be good! Happy making! Jim
