I like the fact that you can get them up and running in seconds.
Great video as well.
I had one years ago that ran well but got rid of it.

The PMR Stirlings are good and yours runs very well Stuart.

This was a nice run. cool Stirling engine. May I ask, how long is the delivery time from Forest these days ?. I am very fasinated by Stirlings as well.
Another interesting product of the company during these years was their hot air (Stirling Cycle) stationary engine, which sold for 30 shillings and was advertised as the "Hot Air Engine for boys of all ages"! These intriguing engines are much sought-after collectors items today among aficionados of stationary engines. http://modelenginenews.org/people/images/tn_dc_13.jpg
