Naturally I was curious.

So I had to build a simple tacho to check the speed.

My Stirling Engine: assembly & run

 The Stirling engine is not new.

Over 200 years ago John Stirling was the first person to build a working hot air engine.

So what better Christmas present to buy myself than a kit of parts.
