Assembling your Coffee Cup Stirling Engine Kit

Taking Parts Inventory

Coffee Cup Stirling Engine: Taking Parts Inventory

I don’t have a method to tell you how to do this, other than be careful.  If you must dump all the parts out to count them, do it on something like a bowl or a cookie sheet so you don’t loose any.  The best idea is to do the inventory with the parts still in the bag.
