Pays to shop around Neil. You might not get one for fifteen quid like Daz but this is a significant saving for a very similar product to the one which Phillip posted https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Hot-Air-S...53.m1438.l2649

Yep, indeed, I only looked for similar, but definitely worth looking around stirling engines as the suppliers compete to out sell each other.

I'm sure they were only about 50 when I saw them new. Maybe Christmas present potential has upped the prices!

Martin - was yours 80+? I'm assuming you bought yours new.

I think Martin's was one of the simpler elbow types.

It is odd that these things appear from a variety of sellers at different prices and with detail differences. Is China full of 'back street' workshops all copying each other?
