Three 7/8's tubes, Two fixed and one sheer magnet. In between, a 3/4" tube suspended between opposite polarities threaded on a brass rod. He double's the magnet strength on one end then retracts it by sheer and measures a 3.3 times increased amplification on the piston tube. Twin "Scotch Yokes" can actuate the transition: There's a "Pendulum Sheer Scotch Yoke version; This one has a power stroke, but would probably start oscillating on a 45 degree angle: Once the mechanism was unbalanced it would work to restore it's equilibrium.
