Hello,

This time it's done. It was pretty hard. I had to do 8 tries to mold this piece of the new version of my Stirling engine. I thought for a moment that I could not do it with the means that I have. But this time it's done. I show in this video how I proceeded. I had to make a mold entirely made with a mix of sand + sodium silicate.


This new Cylinder Head is to strongly improve my last engine that I have made last year.

I regret that I do speak French, but I thoroughly enjoyed the video all the same. You are to be commended for a job well done. Bravo!

Was not my fluency in French, rather my ability to work my way through with Microsoft Translator. :rolleyes:
