Although the IDEA is sound, the practical effects and applications
of magnetic motors are somewhat more problematic.
The biggest problem with Magnetic Motors of any sort (and I've seen more
than a few - Some REALLY, REALLY powerful ones too!) is that the permanent
magnets AREN'T PERMANENT...In some of my own experiments with
Perma-Mag motors, the magnets de-magnetize over a period of time
and since Neodymium or the Ceramic magnets can be cheap or expensive
depending upon their strength...they STILL cost money to MAKE and to BUY
and then REPLACE!
Example: 24 Magnets in a magnetic motor x $180.00 CANADIAN
EACH for very powerful German-made Neodymium-Iron-Boron (NIB)
magnetics = $4320 CANADIAN EVERY two years which means there is no
TRUE NET benefit to our environment or in financial savings when powering
a typical Canadian, Amercian or European household with a magnetic motor.
I have found in my own experiments that these EXPENSIVE magnets
are VERY GOOD at what they do but again they are NOT permanent
so the Caveat Emptor applies here in that such motors can be VERY
powerful in providing useful short-term work, but they are NO panancea
to the world's energy problems. Basically there's only two countries
that make now make consumer-available really high-quality rare earth
magnets and that's Germany and Japan and those magnets are damn
expensive! China has cornered the market for cheap ceramic magnets
and low-cost Neodymium mags, but there is currently enough of a shortage
of the raw materials, that magnetic motors are impractical for large scale,
I think the best non-destructive emerging technologies for
power production is "Cold Fusion", Zero-point Energy and Field Effects
power which all use the underlying structure of the Universe as the basis
for providing energy that would essentially be on a limitless scale.
I do know that there are numerous websites and people who are actively
researching and trying to develop PRACTICAL ways to harness such
quantum energies and I would love to hear more about such activities
from current ATS members and any links to people, places, lietrature
and activities would be very helpful.......!!!!!!
