#2.ELENKER Mini Hot Air Stirling Engine Motor Model Educational Toy Kits


This little engine is very well made and is fascinating to watch. It heats up quickly, and a slight nudge on the flywheel sets it going at a high speed. I use mine as a teaching tool. If you place small neodymium magnets (alternating north and south upward) evenly on the flywheel and hold a coil of battery wire close to it, it will generate AC current, and in doing so, you will demonstrate all the energy transformations that happen in the typical fossil fuel electrical plant.
