Science Fair Project:
Permanent Magnet Motor

Let us start with the basic attraction of a magnet ( North ) is always stronger than the Repulsion ( South ). If I have two bar magnets for an example and I place one on the table taping it down so it will not move, then I hold the other in my hand and angle it just right keeping them spaced exactly ¼" apart. Then slowly sweeping over the static magnet with the other you will see that the attraction is far greater than the resistance = repulsion in the diagrams below we have tried to illustrate exactly what is going on in the magnets.

Static magnet which is taped down

Try this little experiment with 2 new bar magnets: Top magnet at a 45 degree angle from a front view and a 35 degree angle from a top view.

Tape down bar magnet #1 to a table, then put a piece of plastic on top of that. While holding magnet #2 angle as stated sweep slowly across the #1 magnet.

    When entering the field there is, respectively,
  1. a repulsion
  2. then an attraction
  3. then a neutral zone
  4. then a resistance of the attraction.
Now place a 3/8" piece of bar steel in front of #1 magnet and repeat the experiment. Notice that the ist firstulsion is now very weak. even with out the steel bar the north is always strostrongern the south or shall I say the attraction is always stronger than the repulsion ( Resistance ).

first stage: repulsionsecond stage: attractionthird stage: neutral zonefourth stage: resistance of attraction

The spacing is spacing between magnetsUse at least a 1/8" to ¼" space between magnets. Please also keep in mind the peculiar arrangement of polarities in this particular type of magnet because of the way it is cut: Only one face is north while the rest are south. You can quickly find out which face is north by its attraction to the south pole of a compass. For all intents and purposes the north face is facing "up" for all magnets in this experiment.

In the first stage there is a small repulsion taking place, but in the 2nd stage the attraction over comes that resistance as the magnet is moved into the 3rd stage, In the 3rd stage a neutral point is found where there is no pull or push.

Now something has to move it out of that neutral point and past the 4th stage, out of the field; that outside force ( in this experiment ) can be your hand. In the linear carriage array experiment it will be the attraction or the pull) of another up coming magnet placed right next to #1.

effects of third magnetPlace this third magnet so it will pull the #2 magnet out of the resistance of the 4th stage of the #1 magnet ( resistance of attraction ). The whole point of our invention is that one magnet is always helping another magnet, This is very important in the design no matter how you choose to build it. You can design a perpetual rotary type motor once you have made this basic component...

Many people have built motors applying this basic design in many forms. People have been experimenting for centuries with permanent magnets. A few people are claiming a patent pending using the basic unit I am describing. In these plans we are attempting to show you enough of the main components so you can build a free energy magnet motor to run your home.

In model #A we are showing you a linear type carriage motor. Do some experiments on your own first and build this model and from there you will be able to put this design in a rotary type motor assembly. {Please note: Since this is a science fair project we do not give step by step plans for constructing a motor. At this point in time, we assume the necessary proficiency on the experimenter's part for providing materials and manufacturing techniques. More detailed information will be added to this project as a further guide throughout the months. There are many different ways to build this engine using this method. Many of you who know how an electric rotary motor works can build this very quickly. }

top view, flat test model

#2 and #4 Magnets are glued to plexi glass carriage, all parts can be bought at any hardware store. The base is a wood base, 2" x 8" x 24". #8 and #9 Magnets are slanted or curved downward away from carriage. (Also keep in mind that the north face is "up" on all magnets.)

#2 and #4 magnets must be spaced "just right" when you attach them. When #2 has just arrived at the fourth stage ( resistance of the attraction ) the #4 magnet travels right where it will attract to the same magnet that #2 is involved and will pull and push the #2 out of the #1 magnet's resistance stage and push it right into the attraction field of #3 magnet. The whole process is repeated until it reaches the end of #9 magnet.side view of rotor and stator assembly

If #8 and #9 magnets are not slanted or curved from #2 and #4 magnet then there will be a greater resistance than attraction. When #8 and #9 magnets are angled correctly there will be very little resistance and the inertia of the moving carriage will over come it and move out of the array of magnets completely. As #2 and #4 magnets enter the end of #9 and #8 angled magnets you can have another array and carriage ( rotor assembly ) identical to this one on the other side of the rotor, just entering the attraction field of #1 magnet.

The use of too many magnets too close together will result in creating a more powerful resistance, using the least amount of magnets per array is best, make sure each array is far from the other or it will create problems. For more horse power you can make the rotor longer and apply more arrays just as long as they are not too close to each other to cancel each other out, if you buy very strong, large ceramic magnets you will also get more horse power. This Motor can be made up to 15 HP. If you have the money, a small inexpensive 10 HP motor can be designed to fit into a electric car to a 260 amp alternators to charge the batteries to run the car's electric motor. A one to two HP motor can run your home using this principle.

When building vour magnet array if you use 7 magnets as seen on page 3 you will get a dead spot on #7 and #6. This is not a big problem. Once your rotory tyrotaryine is in motion you can over come this by using less magnets or slanting the array properly (more on this later).

The array line of the magnets must be angled at the correct arc or slanted to miss the end resistance. This is very critical and must be done "just right".

exemplifying the idea of curved or slanted

Blockers are iron or steel placed between 2 magnets, the flux field is made weaker, therefore, reduces the resistance of the carriage or such by blocking the south pole flux. Small, ready cut pieces of steel or iron can be found at your local hobby shop. The best value may be steel flashing which can be found at the hardware store and cut to the necessary specs (in the schematics below).

On neutralizing magnetic fields

To get an idea of how to obtain more horsepower in your motor we will illustrate it as a linear carriage motor. The magnets will all be attached as part of the same carriage. The carriage, in this case, acts as the rotor and the magnet array as the stator. You simply duplicate each assembly; this will create a long motor, yet very powerful engine. We suggest using a depth of 3 assemblies while using more powerful bar magnets.

three array test assembly

In building the prototype for the above model: Position the magnet array #1 thru #9 using the above guidelines. A computer aided design program such as Corel Draw could be helpful here. Use a clear piece of mylar plastic which you can buy at any plastic, art, or hardware store and use this as the layout for your slider carriage. Draw your angled magnets on the mylar which will represent the plexi glass carriage. Then move the mylar with the drawn in magnets on it across the array of magnets on your print out. this will help you in designing and understanding just what is going on before you build this device. Use a black permanent marker to draw the carriage magnets on the clear mylar plastic. Once you have found what spacing of the carriage magnets work best then save the mylar clear plastic as your template in building the real model.

The Proper magnets for this project can be found at Radio Shack (Catalog #64-1877). Since you are on the web I would also like to mention a few of my personal favouritefavoritefor obtaining magnets: for excellent wholesale deals on some interesting magnets, for excellent prices on rare earth magnets specially made for advanced energy applications, and American Science and Surplus which also happens to carry the exact size magnet for this project (catalog #10584) at warehouse prices.

(For those of you interested in the patents before 1976, I happen to live near the patent office in Sunnyvale, California. I charge a flat $20 fee for postage, handling, and copies of any single patent. This includes gas money, time and effort for searching, and first class postage. If you are interested, you can send the request through PayPal or directly to me by sending an email to .)

For those of you familiar with Howard Johnson Motor, you probably notice a simularitsimilaritythe magnet arrays compared to this project. The main differences are that the rotor in the Howard Johnson Motor remains on the outside. This rotor contains a drive magnet of particular shape and size. In fact, the angle and slope of the drive magnets in this project by Creative Labs seems to mimic the magnetic flux of Howard Johnson's specially made drive magnet.

Therefore, I plan on doing an analysis of the Creative Labs magnetic drive system in comparison to Howard Johnson's motor. Creative Labs contends that they have a patent pending on their system although they are only using regular materials in a certain configuration. Of course you could come along and say that "you" have a patent pending because you discovered that configuring the magnets according to the "phi" ratio is far more efficient. What I would really like is everyone on my free energy list to build their own and claim true independence from the oil & energy cartels.

Some of you may say that I brought you the cart before the horse in not providing scientific feasibility for this project through classical derivation. On the contrary, I believe that I have provided you with the horse, but I have not yet told you what to feed him. Therefore, you will have to experiment on "what to feed him" at this point. Next time I will provide an analysis of the magnetic forces involved in comparison to Howard Johnson's motor using Coulomb's Law and magnetic field boundary conditions in consideration of Creative Labs sloped magnetic array.

A permanent magnet motor is about to hit the consumer market using these same principles. Meanwhile, you can study an excellent treatise on the Howard Johnson motor! Until next time.


We're always excited to have first time presenters at the 2018 Energy Science & Technology Conference who have real value to share with the audience and it is an honor to be the first-time platform for so many releases.

Although Ken Wheeler has had his book available online for several years, a video presentation makes is much easier for many people to grasp the concepts who are not technically oriented. He has given a lot of short video presentations on his YouTube channel, but for the first time ever, he gives a comprehensive overview of his work that spans nearly 2 hours!

Here are a few of the many items that Ken touches on - some he goes into really deep:

  1. He covers the nature of magnetism, which you will never find in a text book because largely, the academic world has no idea what magnetism is and they even admit it.
  2. He goes into the various geometries related to the various aspects of magnetism.
  3. The difference between small and large magnetic fields and why many people are disappointed when they learn the difference.
  4. The results from many of his own experiments using magnets on seeds, etc.
  5. Some vocabulary that on the surface appears to be simply jargon, but you will learn that certain words are used very specifically to make important distinctions.
  6. How to build the advanced ferro-fluid cells, which are invented by his associates. This is perhaps the first ever open disclosure on this method.
  7. How he used some of these methods for a very specific type of blood analysis.
  8. and much more...
