Oddtodd, thanks for reminding me of that. There are also light activated hall-effect switches out there as well, but those suckers are expensive.
Basically, imho, I'd go with automotive parts (you could even concievably use used parts from a junkyard as long as you get all the components from the same types of vehicles (for compatibility).)

They have a solid bushing that has a certain tolerance that allows the pressurized oil from the engine to lubricate it. Without this system, you will have so much drag and will eventually scuff and marr the bushings and they will no longer be free to spin.

No reputable engineer would help you make a perpetual motion machine. They are Impossible. Better you should go out and tend your garden, At least you might be able to eat from it.
