MAGNET MOTOR PLANS

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: Is this like the Perendev system?

A: It uses the same principle but has a different magnet configuration.

Q: Is this motor easy to make at home?

A: "Easy" is a relative term. It all depends on your manufacturing skills, material resources, available funds, tools, etc.. The plans include material recomendations but many different materials could be substituted. My design is just one way of doing it. Using your imagination and ingenuity you may come up with another way to build the parts that will work just as well or better. As long as the critical dimensions are adhered to the only limitation is your imagination. My design requires some machine work if you use the materials suggested. The rotor magnets in my design would have to be special ordered from a magnet manufacturer (easy to find on the internet) and could be costly. With a little searching you may find an off the shelf magnet that will substitute at a lower cost. The stator magnets might also be available as an off the shelf item, just make sure the dimensions are within the specifications on the plans. The main shaft in my design requires precise machining but again you could possibly adapt a different idea that will work just as well. As I said, what's "Easy" for one may be difficult for another. It will also help to study all of the documentation that is included on the CD so that you understand how the device actually works.

Q: Have you built one and if so did it work?

A: Unfortunately due to Health/Financial/Life circumstances mine is in the shop under the workbench awaiting funds for machine work and magnets. However I have done a lot of tinkering with this technology with some limited success and can honestly say that the concept is sound. This is also supported by the US Patent Office since they issued a patent to Howard Johnson confirming that he had satisfactorily proved to them that the device would indeed function as described and demonstrated.

Q: Why don't you build a motor and sell it at auction?

A: I don't currently have the funding to complete a motor. I would rather complete mine for my own use and continue to enable other people to do the same for themselves. Also the design is not mine to profit from. It is Howard Johnsons design. I have merely taken his work and put it into a blueprint from which a device could be built. It would not be ethical (in my opinion) to exploit Mr. Johnsons lifes work for my own gain. The price of this CD is not going to bring me wealth nor will it break the bank of my customers but whoever buys the CD and builds a motor and puts it to use gives honor to Howard Johnsons efforts.

Q: Does Cd have step by step instructions on building. The problem i have had is others sell information not complete.

A: The plans do not include a step by step "how to". They are simply a detailed blue print with complete dimensions. If you can read a blue print you should have no problem having the parts made and then assembling the motor yourself.

Q: What is the power output for this unit? Please give the volts,
watts and amps?

A: This is not a generator. It does not produce electricity. It is a motor powered by permanent magnets. According to Science & Mechanics magazine, a device such as the one featured on the cover would develop approximately 15 hp. This would easily drive a 120V 5KW generator at peak power.
