Using a Tubing Cutter: To use a tubing cutter align your cut with the cutters blade and tighten the knob, not too tight though as not to squish the tube. This just means that the engine relies more heavily on the momentum of the flywheel to keep it running but is a lot simpler to build. You will find the plans for the wood parts back on the Materials Page. In nearly every historical egyptian building and artefact you can find parts made to fractions or multiples of this cubit. It runs very smoothly, looks good and was really easy and cheap to build. Alternatively you could try hanging the piston rod from something so that it is just 1mm or so above the table, this will ensure it stays perfectly vertical while the epoxy hardens.
There are also many other neat designs of Putt-putt boat. My project turned out real good!

Epoxy glue was used to seal around the exhaust and keep the hull watertight. The Leyden jars are discharged via two spherical electrodes, producing bright sparks. At the same time it pulls a new piece of wire into the water and the process starts again, leading to a constant rotation of the drive wheel. Now epoxy a Q-Tip tube into the hole though the body and to the top of the brace. The Wilesco D2 is a steam engine smaller than any of Wilesco's models up to now.

The piston is roughly 7cm long. The faceplate on the lathe was used to bore the wheel house roof to suit the chimney which was made from a 22mm piece of copper pipe. If you're ever not sure how hot the engine is, assume that it's too hot to touch. The Stirling Engine is an External Combustion Engine the heat source is outside the engine and can use any available source of adequate heat or cold. The Wimshurst Machine The classical high voltage generator - with limited current for safe experiments! Kit made from gold printed, pre-cut cardboard with moisture barrier. Wind the remaining length of the tubing into about 15 coils 3 inches 7.
Low temperature stirling runs freely on top top of hot water or cold ice It's really interesting and imaginative toy.

The third leg is fitted in a way so that it automatically divides the distance between the two outer legs into the golden ratio. A boiler explosion, even in miniature, can result in serious injury. Next drill the outer hole in the wooden crankshaft part the same size as your piston rod wire, then drill the central hole in that part the same size as the wire used for your crankshaft.
