Making a 6-cylinder Stirling engine

This is mostly a photo sequence of how I built my 6-cylinder engine, but much of it relates to how I build my single-cylinder engines as well. In fact, some of the photos are from making my smaller engines, since it's just repeated six times on the larger one. I'm sure there are many ways of doing it easier and/or cheaper and I'm always open to ideas, so feel free to send me your suggestions.

I hope this also inspires some others to try their hand at building a Stirling engine. It's very satisfying to see one's engine running after all the work, and there's certainly a lot of potential to use these engines for small power applications.
