The hot air engine is one of the easiest models to build.No boiler is needed and it starts in a few seconds when the lamp is lit.

A hot air engine originally called the "caloric" engine was first built in 1807.Theoretically it is a perfect heat engine but practical building and design problems present difficulties which lower its efficiency greatly.

In the 1850s Ericsson built a large passenger ship driven by a hot air engine.Present day uses are limited to stationary power plants to drive all kinds of machinery since the power to weight ratio limits use in moving equipment.

These plans which were published in 1913 come with complete instructions for building a hot air engine.No power tools or machining are required.Simple items such as tin cans and copper tubing make most of the parts.The only part which you would have to buy or make is a flywheel of steel or iron .You can probably borrow one off an old model steam engine.

This is a very simple stirling hot air engine which will give you great pleasure in its building and it can put out enough power to drive Meccano or Erector models or any similar items.It is a great conversation piece when mounted on a nice wooden base and displayed to interested parties as it chuffs to life and runs merrily along.Get your copy of this great plan now and build this easy model.

You are buying the four pages of plans and instructions only.
