OK, not exactly an IT question, but I couldn't think where better to put it.
I want to print out a booklet. It is straightforward enough: scale the pages to A5 and print two on each side of A4.

a stirling that small might be a bit beyond scrapheap challenge.
I don't know. I've got one here where the transfer cylinder is made from a coke can, and the power cylinder is made from a milk bottle ...

Google must have remembered that I looked up stirling vs. thermoelectric stove fans. They've just suggested this scrapheap challenge DIY stove fan video to me (seems to be one of many out there): http ...

Thank you. Very helpful. Looks like the 150°C cells will probably cope, which is handy 'cos I have one here (somewhere).
I don't suppose you are able to measure the top of the stand? Effectively the ...

Yeah. I’ll recheck the figures next time it’s on.
Don't go to any much trouble: the critical temperature would be the top of the stand, which would be all but impossible to measure.
Probably jus ...

You would need to have all electronics and electrics well away from the heat source. I wouldn't expect domestic electronics to be useable above 125 C, or even lower. Temperature cycling is also the mo ...

The thermometer on my stove reads 2-300C. Unsure how accurate it is. And the fan sits on that. I can get a much more accurate reading if you need one.

not hard but it is very hot on one side

Keep meaning to get one. Bit late in the evening for popping over to Aldi now.
