Some more are the Bowman motor, Hampster Cage motor. Good Luck. stealth

Hi Stealth

Talk to me about Bowman, Hampster cage? Magnet motors? You have these?

I understand what you said about spaces. I never built one.

What did you think about the self runner using a scooter motor to generate?

The one I am thinking about uses simple ring magnets spaced out nicely and a single ring magnet over head rotates?

I have scene a half dozen of these fully operational all from people who do not know one another.

The mechanical pole switching can be replaced with stationary pole flipping using Howard Johnson's magnetic gate shaping experiments.
