THEORY: To use the power within Rare Earth Magnets to create a rotational force.
DATE of ORIGIN: September, 2007
DESCRIPTION: Create a stator and rotor out of 5 lbs rare earth magnets in such a configuration as to float the rotor in a magnetic field between the two stator halves. Then to induce an uneven influence to coarse the rotor to turn. Trying to Harness the Power of Magnets.
This is an experiment in the power of magnets. Each of the individual magnet seen here is a 5 pound rare earth magnet. There are over five hundred magnets with a combined force of over 2500 pounds of force. The idea is to use this force to create a rotation force.
Of course, for every action there is an equal and opposite action. So in theory the motor will never work. But my imagination got the better of me. The idea is to balance the rotor in the magnetic field of the stator. Once that is achieved the next step is to induce an imbalance in the rotational direction causing the rotor to turn.
Currently the rotor wants to crash into the stator so I put in an axle in to steady the rotor. Notice that in the picture below. In the back ground you can see the two half’s of the stater with the top half floating above the bottom half.
This motor is made of three basic materials, Paper, glue and 5 lbs rare earth magnets. The stand is made of wood and brass.
This project is current on the shelf but every time I look at it I want to pick it up again.
Hope you Enjoy.
