I have used a 20" x 48" trough with 3/4" copper tube in a 1 1/2" glass tube.
The glass tube made a lot of difference reducing heat loss.

Anthony...

I've looked at some - but none as informative as either the Swarthmore
or Oak Ridge documents.

Thanks for the links!

 I like the idea of running a pump. One of the links showed water pumping where
there is no other source of power. This could be a real plus to people that live
in remote places and need water pumping. One of the things people mention when
they put in water pumping in third world countries is, "who will maintain the
pumps?".
Anything that is simple and self sustaining would be much better for those
conditions.

     --You should post the link to rec.crafts.metalworking as there are
quite a few Stirling and solar nuts over there, me included! ;-)
