looking for one for my woodstove but not sure which one.
i looked at the free breeze fan and the ones on ebay from thermal engines
sterling engine fans are 175
how much do they blow and how much nosie do they make...and how hot does the stove hafta be to make it run

im right there to buy one but want the freebreeze but its 350 bucks delivered...wow...kinda stiff

ill probly hafta settle for thermal engines version even tho its smaller so lemme know how ya like em

Had I known you wanted a steam engine I could have given you one five years ago since we had an old sawmill we were dismantling and this is what powered the saws. It was a dandy and huge to boot. Tried to give it to two museums and even had everything ready to go on semi trucks for the interesting party. But no takers. We ended up sending it to the scrap yard. It was a shame to see a piece of history go like that.
