The Robinson’s displacer moves vertically and the power piston move horizontally. This 90’ arrangement makes for a very compact size. In fact, the power piston connecting rod weaves its way through the displacer linkage.
The top & bottom plate is made from acrylic , therefore all the moving parts are visible.
Place this Robison Stirling Engine on a cup of hot water / hot coffee & it may needs some time to start. The time is depends on the heat source given & is generally within 30 seconds to 2 minutes..
The engine won't start by itself, but given a little push in the proper direction (strong enough to coast the parts over for several cycles), the engine will take off and continue running on its own.
