The Mini External Combustion Stirling Engine is an experimental model motor generator engine designed as a physics collection toy and gift. Made of metal, this compact engine measures 16×8.5×7.5cm in size. The package includes the Sterling Engine Model and an alcohol bottle (alcohol not included). The engine operates using an alcohol lamp to generate heat, which creates motion when the flywheel is turned manually. The warm-up time with the generator may be slightly longer. Care should be taken to avoid burns by not touching the heated test tube or connected metal parts during operation.
