Unformatted text preview: Let's Build A Can Stirling Engine -English- Let's Build a Can Stirling Engine To Japanese Page The Can Stirling engine can rotate using a candle as the heat source. This engine is constructed with very simple materials. There are a can, a balloon, a wood board and others. A Can Stirling Engine (This engine was proposed by Mr.Saburo Tsucchida. He is teacher of Kasukabe technical high scool.) Step 1 --- Material Preparation and Structure Step 2 --- Cut a Wood Board Step 3 --- Make a Wood Piston Step 4 --- Make a Diaphragm Step 5 --- Make Connecting Rods and a Crank Shaft Step 6 --- Construct a Diaphragm and Crank Mechanism Step 7 --- Construct the Frame Step 8 --- Construct a Wood Piston and Crank Mechanism Step 9 --- Fit Up a Can Step 10 --- Let's Try to Move Return to 'Let's Build Model Stirling Engines' Go to Stirling Engine Home Page Koichi Hirata http://www.bekkoame.ne.jp/~khirata/english/mk_can.htm[05/05/2010 10:24:12 a.m.] Let's Build A Can Engine Step 1 Let's Build a Can Stirling Engine Step 1 - Material Preparation and Structure To Japanese Page To make the Can Stirling engine you require these materials: wood board 10mm thick; balsa wood 10mm thick; wire 1.5mm diameter; fishing thread; a balloon; square lumber 5mm square; two thumbtacks; a paper clip; clay; a 200ml steel can; cardboard; a candle; nails (or wood screws); and rubber bands. These tools are required: cutting pliers; scissors: a saw: wood glue: some quick-drying glue: and machine oil. This engine has a very simple structure as illustrated. It makes use of wood frames, a wire crank shaft, a can cylinder, a rubber balloon diaphragm. You can get these materials easily. The wood piston is connected to the crankshaft with fishing thread.

You must make the holes for the crank somewhat bigger to reduce friction Cut a Wood Board Go to Before Page - -- Go to Next Page Return to 'Let's Build a Can Stirling Engine' Return To 'Let's Build Model Stirling Engines' Go to Stirling Engine Home Page Koichi Hirata http://www.bekkoame.ne.jp/~khirata/english/aki_2.htm[05/05/2010 10:25:31 a.m.] Let's Build A Can Stirling Engine Step 3 Let's Build a Can Stirling Engine Step 3 - Make a Wood Piston To Japanese Page Fit the pieces of cut balsa together with wood glue. Attach a length of fishing line to the center of the piston with quick-drying glue. CAUTION: The diameter of the can which I used is about 50mm. The height of the can is about 100mm. If you use an other-sized can the diameter and the height of the wood piston must be fitted to the can. Clearance should be 2 or 3mm.

As shown in the following figure, cut the balloon and reinforce it by pasting the card boards. Make a hole in the center of the diaphragm and pass through a fishing thread. Be careful to make a close-fitting hole - not a big hole.

Make the holes for the crank shaft somewhat bigger to reduce friction. Bend a wire of1.5 mm. diameter. Put on the connecting rods before bending the wire.

When you construct the frame, you must make sure that the crank shaft can rotate with a very small friction loss.

Place the diaphragm over the can with some rubber bands. Adjust a length of the fishing thread so the piston moves without touching the can. And for the final measure, put on a drop of machine oil in the hole of the diaphragm. The Can Stirling Engine is completed.
