Stirling Engine Plans

Stirling Engine Plans

As with the Stirling Engine Kits these Stirling Engine Plans vary in complexity and the skill level required to complete them. Some would be ideal for beginners and others would be suitable or more experienced machinists/engineer types, please click on any of the images to find out more about each set of plans.

For beginners i would recommend “Quick and Easy Stirling Engine”, for intermediates i would recommend “Three Stirling Engines you can Build with a Machine Shop” and for advanced Stirling Engine builders i would definitely have to recommend Andy Ross’ “Building Stirling Engines”, the man is a mechanical genius.

Simple Stirling Engine Plans

These simple stirling engine plans are designed for novice stirling engine builders. These would also be ideal for a school project or science fair projects. Once you have mastered these easy stirling engine you can move on to more advanced designs and builds. Click on one of the images below to learn more -

 Intermediate Stirling Engine Plans

These intermediate stirling engine plans should be undertaken by novice – intermediate stirling engine builder. I would recommend the plans above to beginners. These plans will also require more tools, skills and mechanical understanding than the ones above. Some of these plans will requite basic machining skills and possibly also a small metalworking lathe. Learn more about each set of plans by clicking on one of the images below -
