Because there's been a bit of interest in the fluidynes I've been
tinkering with, I've put up a short-term web page at:

to encourage the DIYers in the crowd. :-)

Imagination is good! Both of these are tubes with a bunch of littler

I"ve read about pumping water with these liquid piston Stirling engines but
I don't quite get it.  Most of the illustrations show the pipe that goes to
the water source going to both the hot and cold sides of the fluidyne but
it's not clear to me what is connected and what is not.  Got any tips for
pumping water with one of these?

I just uploaded a sketch/schematic of what we're doing at

We're using what would otherwise be the open end of the tuning tube, but
there's no guarantee that's the best way.
