Latest updates on this site

  • 2013-08-02   A self-running generator in loop under Construction. Soon more information.

  • click2012-10-24   A new device by Tom Ferko. Read more here.

  • 2012-09-03   One of the tools I often use is my MagnetoMeter. Just to find N or S. I downloaded several applications to my android phone, but those applications always give more then I want and therefor are not so practical to work with when I only need a N or S indication. I made my own application that just does the pole detection. It's available for download here and I'm open for suggestions since it's my own

  • 2012-08-21   Finally I started to give the website a 'facelift'.

  • click2012-05-27   Despite many failing replications I decided to make my own rebuild of Calloways V-gate motor. The page will be under construction and updated during the time I collect parts and build. Read more here.

  • 2012-04-05   New pictures of a device that is strongly based on the Perendev, are added to the file section
  • 2012-03-20   I replicated the Magnetic Vortex Motor. The process and result are here.

  • 2011-12-10   Finally I updated the Dual Piston Device. I moved on from version one (sliding bearings) to version two (rotating bearings). Look here for more information..

  • I had the blueprints of the flux-o-matic scanned and posted them as tif and pdf here.

  • I updated the File Section pages. Now images are shown as thumbnails, when browsing the folders. Clicking on the thumbnail will bring you to the real size photo. The thumbnails are created 'on the fly' and loading time is minimal. I also gave the File Section an own navigation block on the front page where I will add the shortcuts to some of the folders.

  • click2008-03-02   The Helix Rotary (Mikell device) is a device with mysteries surrounding it. A new replication was made and the results are posted here..

  • 2008-01-10 A new kind of gate is tested. It is called the Tri-Force Gate. It is a design of Graham Clarke. It seemed possible to get the runner through 4 Tri-gates, the gates being connected on the outer edges with a couple of bar mags between each gate. The bar mags appear to cancel the repel effect at the entrance side of the gates

  • Another SMOT device is designed and created. A nice piece of workmanship by Peter Schmalenbach from Germany.

  • click After I received a package of blueprints made by Lloyd B. Zirbes and kept in a storage for 15 years, I assembled the information on this website. The pages are going to be updated with my progress in making a 3D drawing of the complete device.
  • click A combination of the Triangle experiment and the MagGen is posted.
  • A document is added about the Triangle Gate Experiment, a design by R. Calloway.
  • An animation is posted, that shows a Bowman Permanent Magnet Motor click
  • I collected all information that was available about the Mikell device and placed it in a document.
    The Mikell document was updated with an instruction about how to build a 2D Mikell device.

  • click In the photobook I added a new chapter:Minato movies. I added some video clips with the real Minato wheel.
