Steel / lead is expensive when you start working out the cost of 32 elements. All parts need to be quite accurate too.
I hadn't had a chance to read over his website in detail yet. I did see where he says:
To create the simplest gravitational amplifier a small number of elements (6, 8, 12) is enough, but for the transition into the oscillation mode it is necessary to increase the number of elements to 32
What does "oscillation mode" mean in this context? What does he mean by the 6, 8, 12? Are you saying that I would need 32 weights for it to even work? I will read the page more carefully.
