A concise and clear set of instructions of how to build a (hopefully) working all-magnet motor as described by Mylow, who is the first person we know of who has
allegedly replicated Howard Johnsons Stonehenge model from three decades ago. This document is an adjunct to the open source project at
http://MylowMagnetMotor.com, where the
plans may be found, though not as concise or clear as here.
NOTICE: On May
18, 2009 some hidden fish lines
were discovered in the videos shown April 29-May3. It turns out his
earlier videos were all faked as well. (See story)
The Version 2.1 manual describes how to make the all-magnet motor shown in
the following video in which the motor appears to run using just six bar magnets
on the rotor, using magnets that we sent him which are readily available in
Mylow's all-magnet motor video
taken May 13, 2009. For a context, see our May. 13 coverage
On March 17, 2009, in an ongoing video series he was
posting about his Howard Johnson all-magnet motor (
model) replication attempt, Mylow posted a video showing his motor
accelerating then reaching an equilibrium speed something that modern
physics would say is impossible.He
said he was showing the world how to do this, encouraging others to replicate
and improve on what he had done.
This manual sets forth the information he has conveyed to
us through a series of videos, emails, and phone conversations; as well as
information gleaned from a few individuals who have already begun to seek to
replicate Mylows magnet motor.
Mylow121363 (later projectmagma, then magnetmotor1) is the YouTube username of a Chicago
inventor who for now wishes to keep his identity anonymous.We just call him Mylow.More
information on this project can be found on our project site, which Mylow has
approved to be designated the official website: http://MylowMagnetMotor.comThat is a shortcut domain that will take you to http://PESWiki.com,
which is a publicly editable website, where you are invited to join with us in
this exciting venture.
We are hopeful that these plans will result in a working magnet motor, though it is still too early to certify that this is actually the case.
As more time goes by and people have not yet been able to replicate his work, we are less optimistic that this will be an easy task. Getting the proper configuration of magnets with the substitute magnets has proven to be quite difficult. Please let us know if you have been able to build a working magnet motor using these plans. Let us know of anything that might need to be corrected, updated, clarified, etc. Our contact information can be found at the end of this manual as well as on the contact page of our websites. After weve verified a working set of plans, we can give more specifics, and eventually make a kit available.
We expect that magnet motors can provide non-polluting,
24/7/365 continuous output with no fuel requirement; can be made portable,
and can be made governable.In
short, they could eventually replace every motor and engine application
presently on the market at a price point that is much cheaper than existing
By open sourcing this design at http://MylowMagnetMotor.com,
we hope to accelerate the emergence of this disruptive technology into the
marketplace in the myriad of sizes and applications.This can create millions of jobs and make energy affordable and available
to every corner of the earth: land, sea and sky.We do ask for a 3% royalty on all commercial developments, to be split
three ways between Mylow, Howard Johnsons heirs and assigns, and PES Network,
Inc. for the administration and promulgation of this technology.
This set of plans is called Version
1.1 because it is not based on the very first motor Mylow demonstrated on
March 17, which used an alnico (originally said to be iron) stator magnet that rapidly demagnetized.Rather, these plans are based on the more powerful alnico stator magnet that Mylow installed on his system on April
1, 2009. After
reviewing this manual on April 5, Mylow wrote: These plans are ok.
After much controversy and skepticism, on the
evening of April 29, 2009m Mylow once again astonished us with yet another video,
this one being composed of bar magnets on the rather than channel magnets
around the rotor disc.This one
appears to have more power.The next
day he showed it
running in reverse.Then on May 3 he
displayed it running on
a glass table.And the videos
(backup) keep coming.
This set of plans is called Version
2.0 because it is a significant step forward from the very first motor
Mylow demonstrated on March 17.These
plans are based on the bar-magnet rotor version that Mylow showed spinning
beginning April 29, 2009.
These plans also include information relevant to the most recent version Mylow
has been showing in his instructional
video series, commenced May 9.
Sterling D. Allan has been in near daily phone contact with Mylow since March 17, 2009, when Mylow first posted a video showing his Howard Johnson magnet motor accelerating and then reaching equilibrium at a near constant speed. There has been only one other new acquaintance with whom Mylow has been speaking by phone a person Sterling recommended to Mylow to answer and screen his avalanche of emails on his behalf.
In answer to those who have criticized me for selling plans (an adjunct to
what is available for free from our open
source pages) even before Mylow's motor has been replicated by someone else,
here are the reasons why I believe this thing, starting with the most important
I've long believed in the possibility of an all-magnet motor being able to
provide base-load power. It is not perpetual motion. It is harnessing some
new aspect of magnetism that hasn't yet been appreciated by science, but
Howard Johnson was required to have a working model in order to get a
patent from USPTO. He has three patents.
Mylow's design is very close to Howard Johnson's Stonehenge model.
The myriad of videos Mylow posted are very convincing, showing
acceleration followed by maintenance of an equilibrium speed, accompanied by
very gradual slowing due to magnet depletion. Though not skeptic proof, the
videos do reveal a lot and correlate with what Mylow has been telling us
The movement of the motor as shown in Mylow's videos is consistent with
what I would expect from a magnet motor.
The audio elements in the videos are consistent with what is happening
visually, and with what I've heard over the phone as we've talked.
The partial replications that I've seen, exhibit similar (though not
complete) movement to what is shown in Mylow's videos.
Al Witherspoon said he saw Howard Johnson's motor running in 1978, and has
been a friend/neighbors/business associate with HJ until he passed away last
year. He is convinced Mylow's motor is for real.
The level of skill required to pull off a hoax are far beyond what Mylow
possesses, whether it be embedding hidden motors or induction or video
editing or other means of giving the appearance that shows up in his videos.
The background, between the lines, things that I've been able to pick up
while talking to Mylow by phone have been consistent with what he has been
telling me. He lives in an apartment, drives truck hauling things around
Chicago, works near his residence, has a wife and twin brother, etc. These
are not aspects that would be present if he had the level of skill required
to fake all of this. And what would be his motive? He's not ever asked for
Mylow has never once exhibited even the tiniest interest in getting money
from this. It has been hard for me to even broach the subject with him. With
many inventors, and certainly fraudsters, that's the first thing on their
The magnets deplete (I'm hopeful that a configuration can be found that
doesn't result in depletion, e.g. neodymium magnets in a plastic assembly)
The stator magnet gets cold, which is what others have predicted and
observed in related modeling.
History often shows that the weak and simple confound the mighty. New wine
can't be put into old bottles. The establishment is too stick on themselves.
The recent MIB incident is part of this transition phenomenon -- the old
guard fighting the new thing that will make them obsolete.
With the old guard in the middle of tearing down the economy to establish
their world dictatorship, the timing is right for the emergence of a
revolutionary, empowering technology like this.
More, this is a partial list.
I think that is a very good list of reasons to believe in Mylow's claims and
support the open sourcing of this design, and prepare some clear plans for those
who want things distilled better than what is available for free on our site.
