Mini Stirling Engine Fan Plans

In the late 1800's and the early decades of the 1900's fans of this type were used the world over in areas where there was no electricity.

This model has a 5-1/4" diameter fan powered by a miniature modified Heinrici stirling cycle engine. This is one project that has practical value!

The fan runs at about 900 RPM and blows a nice breeze considering it's small size. The fan is cute in this small size, but if you want to move more air you ought to check out the "Super Stirling Cycle Engine Fan".

I made the alcohol lamp from an old coffee creamer jar that was once used in restaurants. It powers the fan for nearly two hours. The wick is a cotton "pipe stem cleaner".

The plans set consists of 5 sheets of drawings and 2 sheets of construction notes.

Specifications: Fan Blade Dia. 5-1/4", Cylinder Bore: .4", Piston Stroke: .5", Overall Height: 9-3/4" Experience Level: 2

Materials Set: (1) Graphite rod to make piston, (2) 5/32" ID x 5/16" OD x 1/8" thick flanged precision ball bearings.  Materials set sold separately.
