  1. Electromagnetic Motor


    Many many years ago in a Boys Own Annual 19xx vintage there was info on
    Building a Electromagnetic motor, the Motor ran on just a Antenna..

    Use a large 1 meter mica disk from memory as the rotor, but why I think
    its a meter I just don't know as meters was not used in those days,
    unless the article came from the EU..


    Any one have a clue..?
     

  2. From memory it had Brushes, Plus a electrostatic motor would need a lot
    of votage to get it to run..

    Try the foxit reader(free), no problem and about 5 times faster.
     
  4. Electrostatic motors can be powered by wind friction charges. Some old
    diagrams show power coming from an antenna symbol but the only photo I
    could find shows a ballon generating the power.

    Years ago I built this pop bottle electrostatic motor,

    I ran it from a 10,000 volt power supply, it worked good.

    Say Mike are you an EE or a Physicist? (It OK to be a bit of both.)

    I'm a fish monger, well really a shrimp monger. hmm... can a shrimp seller
    be a monger?
    My wife and I run a small retail shrimp store on a marina.
    Been doing electronic tech type work most of my life, but now it is a
    hobby.
    Science was always high on my interest list, my last job was working for a
    physicist,
    we had a lot of fun on worthless projects, but I did learn a lot!
    Any reason you ask?

    Doesn't that cause global warming? SCNR :)

    But you probably don't have the salt-and-pepper sports jacket with
    1960's style tie.

    Ick. Adware. I was begrudgingly using it until recently, but someone
    suggested PDF-XCHange. I like it a *lot* better.

    Ya, we're still getting them everyday even with the BP problem.
    I'm in Panama City Fl. we did see any oil here, one day they did say
    they got about 10lbs of tar balls off the beach,
    coke bottles?

    Actually no, that was a home project just to delight me and my
    physicist buddy. I gave it to a local museum and when I checked
    back they had done a clean out and tossed it.
    Kinda ticked me off, I did a nice job on it.
    A while back I repaired my son's science teachers Van de graaff
    generator, I got to play with it a while before I returned it :)
    I mis-spent my youth also. I say that because early on in school I tested
    in the top 2% in science. I didn't have any kind of mentor to guide me
    along until I was in my late 40's and then I didn't have any math to
    make it really useful.
    Spent most of my years as a tech in assembly and repair on video
    equipment, geophysical test equipment, automobile test equipment,
    worked in an electric motor repair shop till I got layed of during
    the Carter recession. I worked with the physicist building high power,
    high frequency ultrasonic equipment, for use in mostly aqueous solutions.
    Right now I have work on me and my son's electric gocart, and I'm about
    60% finished with two solar collectors simular to this;
    http://www.builditsolar.com/Experimental/CopperAlumCollector/CopperAlumCol.htm
    Got a 4 ft tesla coil that I never finished, damn!
    But enough about me....

    "Fresh water" and "near Buffalo, NY" have no business being in the same
    sentence. ;-)

    Ok, hadn't heard of "Java Center". Other than the NYS Thruway, we haven't
    traveled too much around that part of NY (why?). I lived in Hyde Park for a
    couple of decades and in Vermont for fifteen years after that, so I'm much
    more familiar with Eastern NY.
    The Finger Lakes aren't "near Buffalo". ;-)
    Exactly. Lake Erie isn't "fresh water". ;-)
