Perpetual motion machine
ran for three days with only a tiny fraction of a second loss of speed

Give it a short while and the detractors will be here to tell you it is all impossible.
I recently visited Finsrud at his art gallery in Norway, and talked for many hours about his machine. Finsrud told me very clearly in Norwegian (I also happen to speak Norwegian):
"the machine will not run more than 14 days, and right now without tuning it will not run more than 2 days. The machine is not made for perpetual motion, but is simple an experiment in Physics."
I am not sure why people are twisting the facts and making this into a perpetual motion, or over-unity machine - when the inventor himself says it is not.
I saw the machine running with my own eyes, and the speed of the ball slows down - just as Mr. Finsrud pointed out, while I was there.
I just recently read in the NET-Journal an older article, where Albert Hauser interviewed Mr Finsrud.
It is a very open interview, where Finsrud explains how the machine does work, also with a labeled drawing of the mechanics.
Also there he indicated that the machine will run for about 14 days, at most 3 weeks.
He also states, why he did this machine, and why he called it "Perpetuum Mobile". He did this, to get some free public media attention...
