People wanna say magnets lose strength and all that, yea. But its worth it compared to a "perpetual motion" devices, and all we use for power today. Lets really use natural resources

Thanks. I needed a support bearing for spraying abrasive ceramic material on a spinning work piece so not a great environment for a conventional bearing - abrasive dust makes it a non-starter. I had thought of air bearings and magnetic but after playing with some small magnets I was troubled with the sideways tendency ( anyone who has pushed same poles together will hopefully know what I mean ) I had convinced myself that I would get lots of additional friction on the spindle because of this. I can see from your demonstration that is not the case and your weights are in the range I need to deal with. Gut feelings are not always reliable - sometimes you gotta suck it. Great - sharing something helped someone else on their way - thanks for sharing.

If you use magnetic levitation wouldn't the rotor magnet gap vary, in the alternator (thinking axial flux PMA).

Will stacking up of these magnets increase the strength of neodymium e.g in case of disk magnet stacked and like poles facing will it increase resistance?

My first turbine worked great - (see previous note below) - but I had trouble building the generator because I didn't have machine tools to get the close tolerances req'd. But since one can buy a generator, I decided to focus on building a very good turbine and just buy the gen to couple to it. I would use the "Freedom II PMG" from Missouri Wind and Solar. I suggest you watch Jeff's video on it - on You Tube. Skewed coils so NO cogging for a couple hundred $$'s.

Neat idea. I've been playing with Neo magnets for a long time and see how useful they would be in this application. I have also built a tangent bearing by drilling a hole partially thru a thick alum plate of a dia slightly larger than my shaft. Then drop a steel ball bearing into the hole for the shaft to ride on. Thus, the only contact point is the top tangent of the ball meeting the shaft. My first turbine would spin like crazy with practically no friction. The only prob was replacing the ball occasionally because it would rust in the weather.

Does this mean the resistance force of the magnets is less than the pull force of one of the magnets? Thought it would be the other way around...

Two opposed spin VAWT is an interesting idea to increase the velocity between the magnet and the coil. Doubled velocity will produce twice the voltage per same number of turns in a coil, or one could half the number of turns and produce the same voltage as well as half the internal resistance in the generator's windings. Halving the number of turns in the windings would allow one to use thicker wire in the windings were space was an initial constraint. And using a thicker wire would further reduce a generators internal resistance. A Magnetic bearing between opposed spinning VAWT might be difficult to control the distance between coils and magnets. With magnets on one and coils on the other, the VAWTS will be unbalanced by weight with respect to each other and might respond differently in different winds, though this shouldn't be much of an issue. The biggest issue for the home builder will likely be designing the commutator. The attraction to coils on a stator is you do not need a commutator.

just to clarify with the strip magnet under the wheel and six balanced and spaced properly below the strip would give you no ware and tear. We could have done this years ago. What gets me is the scientist caught in a box. The earth has been spinning on its magnet for 4 billion years we know anti gravity is the answer to space travel and faster than light speed. The only thing to escape a black hole is gravity weird but the answer has been staring us in the face for decades. Tesla knew about zero point energy and a thousand more inventions and died poor with the FBI taking all his work when he died. Free enterprise only if you know someone and kickbacks can be passed on. Sorry for the rant.

Hey Dan if you would put a strip magnet around the wheel or the table under the wheel and use magnet reversed just like the center to balance and have almost no friction or cut grooves in the wood near the center and make them opposite of a center and again no friction. I have a million Ideas but no one to help. I have a bad back and enjoy you guys sharing your ideas we should have free energy by now.

+GREENPOWERSCIENCE to minimize loses from lenz's law one would increase the space between the metal rod and the levitating magnets. theoretically, one could use many thinner rectangular magnets forming a rough circle on the outside of the disk. A similarly designed magnets below would oppose the magnets above. their power to repel adds with each magnet. If the top and bottom magnets differ by length, your less likely to have reinforcing concurrent vibrations from differences in magnetic fields. Ideally arc shaped magnets forming a circle would be best. Care must be taken to eliminate as much space between the magnets in each ring.
+hrcnlz Yes, that is all there is assuming the turntable is balanced. This video has a steel rod but a stainless steel rod will have better results. You will still have a bit of resistance from Lenz's law but it works great. For a heavier load, add more opposing magnets. There is a limit as the higher the stack, the more top-heavy the structure becomes.

hi dan. your videos are great, been watching for ages. i hope you're well and start to make more again when the weather gets better. just rediscovered this, but can't find anything on the suggestion made by another commenter regarding two vawts spinning in opposite directions. did you ever try it?

There should be no friction with it. If that is an aluminum shaft, the magnets should create Eddies Current causing it to also repel away from the shaft.

Cool, I like your maglev. I ain´t no expert but the magnetic force would stay for a very very long time, practically forever..... until it gradually looses its power by self emitting particles (quantum physics)?

+Harold.not.the.Barrel Yeah and I'm really glad they do. It makes them so darn useful for engineering projects. I use them for holding things to RC aircraft. It's like a free lunch. Mr Velcro must be pissed :)
Harold de Mure
Harold de Mure 3 years ago
+NikTheFix Of course, it´s all that simple: entropy increases (I forgot basic thermodynamics and well... I´m just a retired gardener). But with neodymium magnets, the magnetic force lasts a lifetime :)
NikTheFix 3 years ago
+Harold.not.the.Barrel No, the magnet contains many tiny magnetic dipoles which are aligned by the manufacturing process. Over time these dipoles revert back to their normal chaotic alignment so there is no longer a magnetic "consensus" within the metal. This is caused by the internal jostling of the dipoles (heat). Entropy increases and the magnet becomes useless. For neodymium I heard 10% weakening in 100 years. Not bad.

what strength and size neodymium magnets did you use? If I was to build a wind turbine what would you reccommend me to buy in neodymium? size, strength form?
Hi, This rod was steel but a stainless steel rod will have less resistance. You will still get some resistance from Lenz's law with any metallic rod but not an issue at RPM below 1000. The weight and diameter of my turntable makes the resistance a non-issue. Smaller diameter flywheels and lighter weight tables would need stainless or carbon fiber/ fiberglass fishing rod.

Dan, I got some Neodymium ring magnets to create a magnet bearing for a kinetic sculpture. The problem appears to be that the rod itself seems to have some pull to the magnets which does not allow the rod to turn freely in the magnet. Does the rod have to be a non-magnetic material? The rod you are using appears to be a steel rod. How is that not causing a problem?

That type of magnetic thrust bearing idea has been used on watt hour meters so theres no mechanical thrust washer to wear out letting the disc drop, and drag and make the readings slow

That friction could be solved by a bushing replaced with an electromagnet? Or w/e , it can be done.
Nicu Irimia

I can see one problem there. There is friction between the top magnet and the rod. Friction = heat, and heat and magnets don't mix.
flashavoc69 6 years ago
I sketched a design in 2003 for one. But it is frictionless. A lot of the same principles as this. Has anyone made one via a levitated field without any contact points yet?

If you then equally placed some more Neodymium Iron Boron magnets on the circumference of the lower circular frame (with their pole faces ALL the same e.g. North Seeking facing outwards) then as they pass a transformer (or multiples thereof ) around the periphery you would achieve ELECTRICAL POWER! You may also consider re-wiring the transformers with bifilar (two wire) coils to capture the BACK E.M.F effect as many 'free energy' buffs recommend. I do too ;) Keep up the good work!

How long will the magnets support that weight before loosing their magnetic energy ?
Rennie Ash
Rennie Ash 6 years ago
How long would the magnets last under that load? Technically it is still a sleeve bearing with very sloppy tolerance, I think something would be needed to reduce wear on the magnet. If you had a ball bearing with light oil to reduce lateral forces, while still having the magnets support the weight, I think that could last quite a while and be more stable (may have a bit more friction than just magnets, but will be less than just ball bearings since the magnets hold the weight) :)

GreenPowerScience - Hey, you might want to check out the VAWT levitation - Jim Rowan of Canada got the patent on this about a decade ago and scammed a lot of people and stole lots of money from myself and others trying to bring these to market. We have actually built the turbine with very large ring magnets but his alternator and turbine design never produced useful power. We have since developed much better systems.
