Amazing New Video: Howard Johnson (Stonehenge) Magnet Motor

Friday, March 20, 2009

IMPORTANT FE TRUTH UPDATE : This story was later later shown to be a hoax. The MYLOW motor used concealed fishing line which was only spotted weeks later after some video analysis.

User MYLOW has posted an update to the previous video of his working magnet motor. The rig itself is a copy of the one that Howard Johnson worked on in the early 80's nicknamed "Stonehenge". The video (if validated) is utterly remarkable.

I guess he needs to confirm that the horse shoe magnet isn't loosing magnetism. The fact that he had to charge it for it to work suggests this. People need to be aware that because you are using low friction bearings, etc, you only need very minimal energy to get the disk rotating. 26 hours may not be sufficient for the test. It sounds like a long time, but on such a large disk (Large moment arm) this may be what is happening.

Due to the low friction bearing and the large moment arm (large disk diameter), a slight leakage in magnetism, may be sufficient to keep the motor in motion. 26 hours may not be sufficient.

Even so, this would be a remarkable achievement and I bet it works even better if you substitute the alnicos for neodymium or SmC.

Just noticed - he's now re-instated the videos again.
