|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.
