I've just added the first photos to my solar stirling web page -
showing an electrical (resistance) heater being used for testing and
the early construction of the wooden prototype parabolic trough frame.

As promised, progress is slow and jerky - but the engine appears to
scale nicely (the most recent engine has a stroke of ~5" with 30W
input).

Many thanks to all who've offered encouragement!

More later...

 That is a nice sized trough, it should produce good heat.

My compadre in this project took the first temperature measurements
this afternoon. The results weren't too bad - more photos added to the
same web page (link below).
