Hi grum

Fantastic work bravo

just 2 questions

It seems that when the plate enters in attraction with the outer fixed magnet, the acceleration is very low.
Is it perhaps because your plate is too massive to be accelerated by your small magnet and does not get the necessary momentum ?

In Brad configuration , when the plate leave the Dead center, the 2 magnets are organized to be in repulsion before the axle of the crank passes its dead center . And i think this moment is the most important timing point on this machine.
And on your design (video 5) it seems on the contrary , that the crank axle passes the dead center before the repulsion of the 2 magnets?

Just my 2 cents by observing the videos, i don't know if it is important but just a consideration.

Good luck to you
