This is an outstanding succinct introduction to Low Temperature Differential Engines. These LTD engines are the ones you see running on the heat of your hand or a coffee cup. Very intriguing and great conversation pieces.

This has a moderately detailed yet approachable introduction to how these work and the basic design criteria (though it's not a design book).

Following that are very detailed plans for a relatively simple to build hand held LTD engine. Note by relatively simple I mean drill press with perhaps a milling vise near minimum. Note you can source some of the more critical parts off the internet.

Along with this book I would also recommend An Introduction to Stirling Engines for your first forays into Stirling engines.

See my Introduction to and Making Basic Stirling Engines list.

Format: Paperback
Cover construction of a 6 1/2" low temp Stirling engine. Explains the concepts behind the design decisions. A little math shown in the text but not much.

If you want to understand the Low Temp Stirling and then build an example that will run on the heat of your hand in a cool room, this will do that if you build carefully. Requires a lathe to make the parts.

Well worth the money.

This book is a great asset and even reference for anyone who wants to build or learn about LTD Stirling engines. Full plans of multiple engines, tips about building, and great insights into how the engines work and what would be needed to make your own design.

Lots of details, many drawings, full description of engines. If you are going to read only one book about LTD Sterling engines, I think this is the one.

it's a little more than an over view of the subject matter but not too technical for the average person.
