Update: Gakken Stirling engine build

A few days ago I wrote about the Gakken stirling engine kit from the Maker Shed. My intentions were to build it during the Super Bowl. Well, after seeing all the drinks and food on the table I decided to move it back into my studio. During the 1/2 time break I was able to build a lot, and I continued after the game. It’s really looking cool, even though it’s only about 1/2 way done. I can’t wait until I can fire it up and see how it works!

I will have the complete build, and a video of my first firing, this Thursday. I wonder what kind of power the little DC motor puts out?
