Welcome to my stirling engines site. I'm making videos and web pages on Lamina Flow Stirling engines right now but this website is all about building anything.

This is a Lamina Flow stirling engine generator in action. It only produces 8 milliwatts but it's a good start.
This video covers all the parts I used to build the Lamina 2 engine. The lamina 2 engine is very similar to the Lamina 1 with just a few improvements.
The lamina 2 stirling-like hot air engine reaches 850 rpm when run with a candle and reaches over 1700 rpms with propane. The magnet I used to balance the weight of the graphite piston flys off when the engine reaches 1723 rpm!
This video is about the most important part of a lamina flow or stirling engine and shows some of the piston cylinder sets I've used.
This is a 2 part video that gives every dimension imaginable for the Lamina 1 engine. This is mainly just the lamina flow engine plans, not much info on construction techniques. To see the Lamina 1 being powered by solar energy check out the Lamina 1 - Solar Powered Lamina Flow Stirling Engine video.
This is a demonstration video showing the Lamina 1 in action. This engine will run off of a candle, propane, alcohol, or even the sun. For the plans on how to construct this motor yourself check out the Lamina 1 Plans video.
