New experiment came as a result of instant idea.. What about to hook my very first compressed air engine and to run it in reverse to compress air?
It works :)

Very cool Perry!
I'm surprised the hot air engine has enough power to blow up the balloon.

That's really neat, must try it.  Ihave used one motor to drive another to try the effect of refrigeration, managed to drop the temperature from +20*C to -20*C in 20 miniuts, I thought that wasn't too bad.  For a compressor I might have to build something.

wow, all these animations are superb. Your engine is really powerful, congratulations...nice to return to the whole thread, and lot of ideas for animating a stand in a show !
the Pegasus is lovely, automata look to match perfectly with Stirling engine.
 could you give us some details on the electrical generator ?

Thank you guys, yes I was surprised too to get this performance out of it. Ian, the cooling experiment is something I'd like to try too. My plan is to power my stirling with my Webster IC.
The dynamo is a Sanko electric motor from old audiotape player. When time permits, I'll machine proper stand/housing for it
