At right you will find a picture of a walking beam hot air engine I recently finished building. It was built entirely with scrap wood and metals. It burns alcohol for fuel, has 16' flywheels, and runs very nicely at about 250-300 r.p.m. There have been several articles on hot air engines in the past; I thought subscribers might enjoy seeing this one.
