annoyingly I was in Lancaster all last week so went past you twice but had so much equipment and filters in the van I couldn't fit it in to deliver.

Many interesting things on offer so what does idiot features spend his hard earned on? A dodgy homebrew hot-air engine of course.

Looked sort of OK and I recall seeing it on ebay or face book not so very long ago. Felt a bit tight and no compression bounce but seller assured me he had seen it running - a quick toast when I got home however, showed no inclination to repeat the performance.

Pulling it apart (not immediately obvious how it was put together) revealed lots of friction and a pin hole in the bean can displacer, if it did run it can surely have been only a few fitful revolutions under the influence of a giant blowlamp before expiring from heat exhaustion!

So what have we got? A reasonably well executed rhombic drive and power cylinder (better than I could make anyway) with a rather dodgy displacer and heat exchanger assembly, in fact just what I don't need - another bloody project!

I think it was 475 but might be wrong - as I wasn't in the market I didn't pay that much attention. Was on Nick Major's stall.
