John Bedini's Magnetic Gate - 02/25/97
The following diagram was drawn up by
John Bedini and courteously shared with KeelyNet after experimenting with
David Hamel's Magnetic Spinner. Click HERE for more information about
John's experiment with this phenomenon.
John believes this is a probable motor force which is currently under
investigation. You are invited to experiment with these principles and also
share your findings with everyone.
On a personal note, in an earlier file (BEDHAM1.HTM) I said in an email to
John that I had not been able to get mine working. With patience,
perseverance and another magnet arrangement, mine DID INDEED SPIN, though not
continuously because it kept walking out from under the ring magnet held over
it. Once you see this for yourself, you understand WHY Hamel needed these
wobbling cones to keep the arrangement in a fixed location.
I am still experimenting with various versions as time allows and it is MOST
INTRIGUING to witness this. John is right, something is going on here that
everyone needs to check out.
The idea of simulating Hamel's large ring magnet by using multiple small
magnets mounted inside a PVC or ABS pipe makes it simple for ANYONE to
experiment with this. More will be posted in as timely a fashion as I can.
John is also setting up a page on his site (posted below), for additional
insights. Please share anything you might find out, just build it!....>>>
