Actuator/helper
by Robert H. Calloway

The actuator magnet and the helper magnets.

I think everyone here is getting the idea of operation and we can now do some fine tuning. If you would move the top of the right helper magnet to the right about a 1/4 of a inch. Now move the bottom of the left helper magnet out the same distance. This will allow for a smooth release into the repel or release mode. Once the helper magnets have pulled the planet disks from their locked positions, the sun disk starts to help reach the balance of center point. Plus with help from the actuator magnet.
Right before center point we need the helper magnets to ease up on their attraction and let overcenter repel take over. Moving those helper magnets out a little on the release ends will allow this to happen.
The one actuator magnet is very important, for more than what you may think or see. The angled or trapezoid end of the magnet is a gate in this design.

I have put together a easy test for you folks to try, and see for yourself that what I say is true. You will need (2) rod magnets as used in the engine. You will need one that has been ground to a angle. First let me explain. To find the exact place of the bloch wall in the rod magnet. Measure it in length and divide by two. This is the exact location of the bloch wall. Now if you were to cut the magnet completely in halve, the bloch wall would move to the center of each halve that was cut. But we are not going to cut the magnet. Take a paperclip and move it up and down the length of the magnet. You will find the bloch wall at the center of the magnet and the paper clip will not stick to it. It will move to one end or the other and travel all the way to the face of the magnet and stay there. This proves that the face is the strongest point of the magnet for repel and attraction.
Now grind a 45 degree angle on the end of the face without taking away any length of the magnet on the high side of the angle.
In other words the overall length of the magnet remains the same. Now, refind your bloch wall. Yep, its still in the same place because you didn't take away any length of the magnet except for one side of the magnet in the angle. Test again with the paper clip. At the angle the clip will go to the highest point in the angle face.
Have your sun disk in place on the engine without the planet disks being installed.
Put your angled or trapezoid magnet under the sun disk in place.
Now place a 9/16 wrench on the outside nut holding the sun disk in place. Now place a load or weight on the end of the wrench. Apply more weight until the sun disk goes through the angled magnets repelling field. Record the amount of weight that it took to do so. Now remove the angled actuator magnet and install the other magnet which is a straight cut end magnet and angle the magnet to the sun disk so that it would appear that we are doing the same thing as the angled magnet or position it any way you wish as long as the air gap is the same as the angled magnet test. Apply the wrench and the same amount of weight. The sun disk will not go through the non-angled magnet. Open the air gap up a little. Still wont go through. Add more weight until it finally goes through the non-angled magnet. Record the weight. You will need roughly about one half as much more weight on the wrench for it to get through the straight cut end magnet. The angled or trapezoid magnet acts as a lower resistance entry gate which indeed is needed for the engine to run.

Be sure you understand the helper magnets importance completely. The actuator magnet must be able to push the sun disk out of the planet disks attraction to the helper magnets into over center repel or release mode. If you think your gaps are to close between the sun disk and the planet disks don't be afraid to put more angle on the actuator magnet. But when you put more angle in the magnet you need to tilt the magnet more to the left because flux still flows straight out of the end of the magnet even though it is angled. The actuator magnet needs to be positioned so that it has the greatest amount of push on the sun disk turning it clockwise.

I also need to let you folks know that the thickness of the helper magnets is not critical. I am now trying to build adjustable helper magnets for my motor. The planet disks can be adjusted further away from them if necessary. Whatever magnets you use, if they are too strong simply back the planet disks away from them for correct adjustment.

I added a drawing (Pic E) that may help you understand how the actuator can be changed by angle.
It comes down to this: More angle, means easier gate entry. Less angle means harder gate entry. The steeper you grind the angle the more the magnet has to tilt to the left to give the greatest push on the sun disk. That push gets you out of the attraction from the helper magnets into over center to the release mode. Then it simply starts all over agin chasing its own tail.
