Con't  con't  

Here is my second Solar #1 Stirling Engine, another cheap buy, with original burner ...  

( no documents though )

Appears to be running easily , with less power than first one ;
I need to dismantle things to check out why ...  



I did not follow instruction notes, and a single tiny wick is good enough to power the machine !

I was very surprised when I noticed burner is actually a burner simple lid ...  
And even more surprised to see that green paint can resist meths ...    

Those are cute runners, and on second hand market, they will win against Eastern 50 bucks fabrication ...

That seems to run easier that your other one!

I will have to get one to experiment with, I already know what I am going to do with it!
