Can Superfan be modified to run off a stove top?

I got this message from Jocelyn Briere on Aug 14, 2012.

Hi,
 
I am interested in your Stirling Cycle Fan.
But I would like to use it on a wood stove. Do you do a model for that?
Would it be possible to modify the Mini Stirling Cycle Fan so that it can run on top of a wood stove?
 
Thank you!
 
Joss.

My reply:

It would have to be modified.  It's currently designed to get the heat from an alcohol burner flame at a concentrated point, but I don't see why an enterprising builder couldn't modify the heat collector to have a wide, flat base to collect the heat from a stovetop.  You may want to check the HMEM forum, as there are thousands of users over there, some of which may have done this already.

Good luck!
