Vittorio writes –

For those familiar with the Stirling Engine, the Ross Yoke is an ingenious mechanism for transferring dual piston motion into rotational motion. It has the advantage of minimizing lateral forces acting on the pistons making for a more efficient, compact design.

I’m going to use this mechanism for my own Stirling Engine project. [Here] are some pictures of the Ross Yoke I made out of wood. It’s rather large as I wanted it to be robust for my design.
