Review from Customers

Dear minorinminorin,

Thanks Minoru for such a quick response. I received the Stirling engine today. It only took 4 days from purchase to receive it here in New Zealand. I am a Science teacher and purchased this to illustrate some basic principles to do with pressure and temperature. The machine is very easy to set up, so dont be put off by the kitset nature of it. In 2 minutes I had it set up. It can be a little finicky to get working for extended periods but you can get it running well. I am happy with it and you cant complain about the price. Thanks a lot Minoru.

Hi dear Peter!
Thank you so much for your reply.
I am so happy to hear.
There are several adjustment to make that work long time.
For example ,Please Put an Ice on upper plate.
And Please put boiling water as hot as you can.
And Please adjust location of rubber band.
It seems good for lower location.^_^
Please try again for working it for ten minutes!
See you again,

Dear Minoru,

Here are some comments on the Free Piston Stirling Engine Kit: 

The engine kit arrived in Canada in 7 days from the date of purchase on Ebay.  - This is a very good delivery time for a parcel from Japan.

 The engine kit arrived in good condition. 

The assembly of the engine kit was very easy.  The only tool required was a roll of scotch tape.

 I liked the fact that spares of the displacer-spring and piston-spring were included in the kit.  - These items are the only parts which might break after heavy usage.

 I found that the rubber band had to be tightly wound round the upper tube or it would slide down.  The running of the engine is very sensitive to the position of the rubber band on the upper tube.  I had to adjust it a number of times before the engine ran successfully.

 The engine ran better when I poured a small amount of cool water on the top.  (I tried crushed ice on the top but I found that if the crushed ice touched the top tube, the piston wouldn’t move smoothly inside the tube.)

 Attached is a photo of the engine in operation.

 Yours truly,

I received the engine today! Paid on Friday morning, delivered in
California on Monday afternoon!
The engine runs well. It helped to move the rubber band a bit
lower, and it works better with some ice on the top, but it was
easily running for 5 minutes. Very impressive!
