Happy Thanksgiving from all of us here at Work headquarters. This week, we're treated to a schematic explanation of the Stirling engine from last issue's guide to good things. Neat, eh?

Part of me wants to believe that woodworkers are inherently interested in such things, but maybe that's because the image of woodworking in my mind's eye is invariably concerned with a woodburning stove and the struggle to stay warm. Heat transfer and high efficiency cogeneration for the completion of holiday projects.

And speaking of holiday projects. Who wouldn't like to spend some time with a family member making one of these tin can models. I'm a firm believer that wintertime tinkering needn't be a secret or solitary activity. So, in keeping with a spirit of thanskgiving and gratitude, allow me to suggest that shops be shared. -T

Just for fun, here's a Stirling that Joel made while he was in college.

Disclaimer: Articles in Work describe materials and methods that would not be considered safe or advisable today. We are not responsible for the content of these magazines, and cannot take any responsibility for anyone attempting projects or procedures described therein.
The first issue of Work was published on March 23rd, 1889. The goal of this project is to release digital copies of the individual issues starting on the same date in 2012, effectively republishing the materials 123 years to the day from their original release.
The original printing was on thin, inexpensive paper. There are many cases of uneven inking and bleed-through from the page behind. Our copies of Work come from bound library volumes of these issues and are subject to unfavorable trimming, missing covers, etc. To minimize harm to these fragile volumes, we've undertaken the task of scanning the books ourselves. We do considerable post processing of the scans to make them clear but please bear with us if a margin is clipped too close, or a few words are unreadable. We would like to thank James Vasile and Karl Fogel for their help in supplying us with a book scanner and generally enabling this project to get off the ground.
You are welcome to download, print, and pretty much do what you want with the scan for your own personal purposes. Feel free to post a link or a copy on your blog or website. All we ask is a link back to the original project and this blog. We are not answering requests for commercial downloads or reprinting at this time.
