Having enough hit or miss engines I thought it time to try something else, thus this sterling engine filled the bill... The design is from Jan Riddle of the Netherlands. The only change I made was the brass cylinder for the power piston.  The original design calls for this cylinder to be made of a glass test tube.  I tried four different test tubes and found that none of them were internally cylindrical enough to afford a good fit for the power piston. The glass test tubes make this an interesting design and is a very nice runner....
