Please note: Due to Legal Non Disclosure Agreements certain aspects of the technical information have been replaced by asterisks where necessary.
FE Truth: "Firstly Blake, tell us about your background."
Blake: "Born on a plane between London and Baltimore (my dad installed the first Coca-Cola bottling plant in London). Birthplace listed as Baltimore. Moved to Western Maryland at age 2, then to Florida at age 7-8. Started working at the airport in Jacksonville at age 12.
"At age 17 enlisted in the U.S. Airforce. Schooled in aircraft. Assigned to 3206th Drone Squadron, Eglin Air Force Base. Flew many different aircraft as Drones from Q2s to QF104s and QB-47 and one F8U Crusader. "
"Attended college during service time. Earned degrees in electrical engineering and mechanical engineering. Became "Jack of All Trades, Master of None". After time in the military went to work as aircraft mechanic on Land-Air Field team, then Lockheed Air Service field team, then to Lear Seigler Aircraft and Missiles Field Operations Division.
Progressed to troubleshooter for all field teams. Became in-country manager of all crews in Vietnam. "
"Then home to many different jobs until 1971 when I moved to Georgia and worked for Robins Air Force Base as an aircraft sheet metal mechanic. Then transferred to Electronics Division to work as electronic trouble shooter. Forced to retire in 1978 and then opened my own woodworking shop in Perry GA. "
"Closed the shop 86 and worked as supervisor for many companies until Northrop Grumman hired me to do aircraft sheet metal in 1997 - been there every since. Graduated to tool design engineer and methods engineer in Dallas, Texas then transferred back to my first love (my tool box) in Stuart Florida, where I currently reside. "
"Will move again in December back to my beloved Georgia and my children and friends."
FE Truth: "How did you become interested in the whole Steorn / Steorn Private Developers Club thing?"
Blake: "Last year in August around the 17th or 18th I saw a wee bit on energy on Fox news and I clicked on it and that brought me to Steorn. According to the register shown on the screen I was #60 to register."
FE Truth: "As I understand it, with the combination of technical knowledge gained in the SPDC and your own engineering ability you set to work on building a testrig to try and replicate the free energy "Steorn Effect". Without going into any technical secrets tell us about how you built your own Orbo test rig?"
Blake: "Having wood and metal working skills and trying to decipher the dialogue on the main forum, I set about to try my hand at duplicating the Steorn discovery. I built many rigs, testing theories, and did not even come close until Sean (Steorn CEO) posted a diagram and then I started to work in earnest."
"My wife was away visiting her mother and I came home from work and started to assemble a rig like Sean's diagram. Started with a ***** base then added a hang arm for ******* support, then used a ******* magnet to wind an ******* magnet for the *****. Then follow my sense of feel I tried placing magnets near, ************ and at many ******* angles until I felt something unusual and noticed that the spin down was not slowing down much from my original spindown."
FE Truth: "Talk us through the sequence of events that night."
Blake: "After I hot melted the ******* in place I used the dremel tool to spin it up to abound *** thousand rpms and I usually got around ** and a half minutes sometime almost *** on the spin down. "
"I waited almost 5 minutes and it still kept going and I thought maybe I got an off center balance that is keeping it going like a flywheel so I quit watching it and went back to work on a model plane - all the while keeping an eye on the rig. "
"It was late and I knew I had to work the next day so taking a final look at the running rig. I went to bed...it was still running when I woke up and when I left for work. When I got home the first thing I did was to go look at the rig. "
"My heart really fell when I saw it stopped".
FE Truth: "How long did it self-sustain for in the end?"
Blake: "I can only vouch for about 8 hours, I do not know how long it ran after I left for work".
FE Truth: So basically it ran on it's own with no external input for at least 8 hours and possibly way more than that?
FE Truth: "When you finally realized it was self sustaining and kept spinning on its own what was going through your mind?"
Blake: "I kept wondering when it was going to stop and then when it did not...I thought...damn I got to go pee!"
FE Truth: (Laughs)
FE Truth: "In your opinion, is this something that most people could build?"
Blake: "I think that the rig I built can be built by most anybody given the right materials and tools".
FE Truth: "Now that you've witnessed a self-sustaining device how do you feel now about Steorn as to whether they are telling the truth?"
Blake: "Well, I know the rig can run on it's own. So I believe what they say is possible and that they are probably telling us the truth but holding back important details till all the patents are in and the jury reports."
FE Truth: "What do you say to people who may accuse you of making this up?"
Blake: "You are entitled to your own opinion, I have nothing to gain by making up stories. However I intend to keep trying to replicate the run to quell the naysayers. Until then it is just my word against the odds."
FE Truth: "So that would make you one of only a handful of people in the world who has seen the fact with their own eyes that free energy can be tapped using certain configurations of magnets.”
FE Truth: "I assume you're trying to get it going again or to build an improved prototype rig?"
Blake: "Yes, I have been trying ever since it stopped and will keep trying till it runs again. I have no real idea what made it run but only feel that the way to make it go is simple, I just happened to have the right conditions at the time.”
“It will run again. The next time it runs I will have the means to record it at hand.”
‘Never, never, never give up. Some folks say I am stubborn, other say I am dedicated, still others say I am crazy, me - I just want to make it run and scale it down so I don't have to use batteries in my model airplanes."
FE Truth: "Do you have any personal theories on where this energy may be coming from?"
Blake: "For what it’s worth, I believe that we will find that magnetism has a frequency and that the frequency is present everywhere in the universe. I believe the force which we are converting to energy comes from that."
FE Truth: "In a sentence, do you think that the possibility now exists to end our reliance on oil, coal, gas and nuclear power given Steorn's Orbo technology?"
Blake: "I believe it has always existed and that we are just now re-discovering it. "
"I think the ancients had more real intellect of physics and nature than we do today. And if I did not believe that Steorn had found a path to this science then I would not belong to the SPDC. At least having hope in them is better then no hope. For without dreams we
stagnate and die."
FE Truth: "Congratulations on your amazing achievement Blake, and many thanks for sharing your remarkable story."
