Hi Shamus,

It would be easier to rotate the magnets but they do weigh a fair bit so a larger drive motor may be needed. Mind you this would mean that the magnets themselves would act as a flywheel and automatically do away with the cogging that Bedini talks about. I think I'll try it that way if I build another one.

Cheers,

Steve
