Creating A Mini 16 Cylinder Hot Air Engine

When it comes to the internal combustion engine, it really is a beautiful thing that takes complexity and simplicity and somehow combines the pair of polar opposites into one concoction that so flawlessly powers billions of machines around the world today. All kinds of different parts need to act just correctly in order to house the power and transfer it into usable energy.

As a gearhead, you’ve probably had some experience with wrenching on different kinds of engines and this time, the Stirling engine with a whole 16 cylinders is the engine in question but instead of a full-scale power plant hiding away in an engine bay, we check out a miniaturized tabletop version! It’s pretty neat to see as you can take in the entire thing at once!

It’s truly wild to see each step of the process as we check out the finished product as the engine manages to come together just right, piece by piece, reminding you of the real deal the entire way as every last piece serves its function perfectly. At the beginning of the video, we also get to take a look at the engine’s start up and how exactly this thing manages to run like a top!

Check out the video below that shows us this truly awesome machine that we know took lots of hours and a pretty good amount of patience to pull together to get to its final form. Also, be sure to tell us what you think of miniature engine builds like this and tell us what other kinds of power plants you’d like to see constructed! Videos like this really give you the chance to take a look into someone’s creativity and what a little bit of ingenuity is able to accomplish when you put your mind to the task.
