Better to have opinions before we do it than have the slow lingering death of no posts...

At present, most of the sub-sections get used fairly well, I think that a couple may be axed if there is no traffic, but on the whole it seems OK.

I think hot air / Stirling engines is a perfectly legitimate topic for discussion on this forum in general - SEM occasionally covers the subject. The question is whether there would be enough traffic to warrant a separate section and the answer is looking like no.

While on the subject of 'slow' sections, I hope that the new SEM discussion section (my fault, and after all that moaning about the confusing multiplicity of sub fora!) picks up when the next issue drops on the door mat.

I have one of these
http://www.shinyshack.com/product.php?prid=211027
in front of me right now, it lives on my desk at work sitting on an old lavalamp base so I can fire it up whenever I like!

The admirable Edgar Westbury commended hot air engines for their good 'parlour habits' - certainly the only engines Helen would tolerate me running indoors.

I have a 1/4 scale Robinson B4 that I built along with a MEE "The Junior" (Lister A-type - ish) that I also built!

Both run, but I don't because it causes corrosion and ruins the paint...

I may well have a go at The Anson's Alyn Gardner, when I have a spare moment...
