    Not allowed back into the area. 1,000 acres so far. The plateau we live on is surrounded on three sides by a river gorge, and the winds. down in that canyon tend to drive the fire right along the canyon floor until we are surrounded on all three sides. That's what happened last time. Then the fire burned right up the steep hill from the river down below until it burnt the back decks on some of the houses. That could happen to us with our new house. The one we sold was one street away from the canyon edge and a bit safer. But we were evacuated from that house six years ago too. We have security cameras we can monitor on my laptop and see what is going on. A. couple of them have remote motion adjustments, so we can point them across the street toward the fire, or up and down the street. We're staying at a B & B our neighbor owns until the all clear. He offered it for free, but we will definitely pay him. It's a great house and my mom and our two dogs are staying with us. If the houses both burn (ours and my mom's) we will figure it out when the time comes. No generator work for a while. If the generator burns up, I get to build a new one with the insurance money that is bigger and better. Silver lining.

    Had to abandon ship and run for the hills. The police invited us to leave immediately. I was going to roast a few hotdogs before I left.
    This is a picture of my neighbor’s house across the street. The orange cloud behind it is the fire.
    Can you find out how bad it is? Are you driving to see if the house will be gone by morning? Are fire trucks coming? where would you go?

    I play with magnets a lot that are cylinders. I don't know anything about disc magnets from testing. Here is what I found out testing the cylinders. Place a large powerful magnet out in the middle of the table. Next take the same size magnet in your hand and begin moving it around in a circle all of the way around the magnet in the center of the table. start at 18" and circle. move to 12" and circle keeping an eye on the free magnet. As you get in closer say 6-7 inch you will see the loose magnet move. Move in another inch and it will start moving in a circle with the magnet in your hand.

    If you are using 1" X 1" magnets use an inch of rubber gym mat material to cover your magnets so as not to lose a finger. Another way is to have magnets on a fulcrum or rotor like MadMack suggested. My small magnets on the madmack setup would begin pulling toward one another within a 3-4" range. As the magnets get closer together you have time to pull you hand out of the way so the magnets don't crash into each other. This is a safer way to test large dangerous magnets.

    I would venture to say it is impossible to set two 1" x 1" magnets together free standing at less than 3" before things get hazardous to human health

    Wantomake, I think Matt pulled that YouTube link down. Not entirely sure. Here is the PDF. I do have a video Matt made, but not the series he made explaining how to wind the motor. At least I don't THINK I do. Am looking now. MJSCwriteup.pdf

    I'm using the Matt modified motor to run with the Peter Lindemann (sp?) 4 battery switch setup, but I need to rewind the Matt motor and can't find the YouTube link.
    I know this is off subject on a holiday. Forgive me. But I'm still at it, just a little different project.
    Thanks in advance and be safe and Happy 4th!

    I don't think that is correct.
    There are six coils on each side of the rotor, but because I have 10 magnets on the rotor, only four coils align with a rotor magnets at any point in time. (Two on each side of the rotor.) And only two magnets out on the rim of the rotor each align with two magnets on the stator (one on each side of the rotor) at that same point in time.

    I have six coils on each side of the rotor.
    If I had 6, 12, 18, or 24 magnets on the rotor (and opposition magnets aligned correctly) all 12 coils would be attracted at the same time and all magnets in repulsion would act at the same time. But with 10 magnets, the spacing is different.

    I have another house project....building a shed under my deck, that I need to get done, so I am way busy right now. No rest for the weary,
    Have fun doing the cement and I know you love it. Keep up the good work. So you use 8 magnets to oppose 4 magnets counting the cores as magnets? Interesting, I'll have to think on it

    I actually had my stator drilled for NEW holes for the opposition magnets that allows them to be farther from the coils. They still line up with a 3/4" magnet on the rotor when the 1" magnet is aligned with the coil, but it is a magnet on the stator that is BETWEEN two coils rather than one that is directly out from the coil like spokes on a wheel. I picked up 3/4" more spacing between opposition magnets and the coils that way. I've made every change I can think of to limit magnetic interactions of any kind. Will glue the last two magnets in the rotor tomorrow, and let it dry for an hour or so before starting assembly. Should be up and running by Wednesday or Thursday.

    Hello Dave

    I see you are hard at it. This has been along time coming but hey you learn by trial an error. Let us know what the right answer to solve the problem asap if possible, this is got me on pins and needles. Either way you are going to get to the bottom of this.

    I am setting up to do machining work. I need to cut non magnetic rotors with them.

    edit
    I see half the drag and half the opposition magnets. Should turn out good

    edit
    your opposition magnets are out of place, right?

All the ones currently in the rotor are North, so will install five South to have a N/S ten magnet rotor with LOTS of space between the magnets. If this solves the problem, will look at having sleeves made for each magnet.
