Small Tattoo Motor
Patented in 1816 by Robert Stirling, the hot air engine or Stirling engine is based on a simple principle: A burner filled with fuel heats the air inside a cylinder and thereby purveys energy to the motor that activates through piecing of the flywheels.
Stirling motors are impressive machines despite their simple design, and this Small Tattoo from Boehm Stirling is no exception. Delightful in its own motion, it can also be used to power one of their other mechanical fascinations.

This Stirling engine works with denatured alcohol. You put this fuel into the burner and ignite it (shown in the video, here).
The burning fuel forces the air inside the piston to expand and cool again. It produces the power to run the engine during the heating up and cooling down process.
