    Perhaps I was asking the wrong questions. A while back I emailed Peter lindemann about Edwin Grays energy circuit conversion tube.

    Dear Tim,

    Thank you for your email and your interest in Ed Gray's technology. In
    the seven years since this material was published, no one has completely
    succeeded in replicating Gray's circuits. In spite of their apparent
    simplicity, the combination of high voltage DC, abrupt switching, and
    impedance matching requirements make these circuits more difficult to
    produce that most people think. Unless you are an experienced
    Electronic Tech or EE with experience in high frequency switching and
    high voltage, with a lot of extra money and time on your hands, I
    believe it is safe to say that the project is beyond your ability.

    Building the "conversion tube" is not the problem. Building a circuit
    with the proper components that can switch a High Voltage capacitor
    discharge OFF at the first "zero-cross" is the difficult thing to
    accomplish. Without this, the conversion tube won't have anything to

    This is not a hobby level project.

    Sorry if this is not the answer you were hoping for, but I would hate to
    see you spend any money on this if your prospects of success are low.

    Best wishes,

    Peter Lindemann, DSc

    Obviously this thing is more complex than I thought. Which makes this idea impossible. Perhaps I was asking the wrong questions. I'm interested in a system that will provide electricity and heat for my home and barring any type of mechanical failure should not need any adjustments or replacement parts once it's operational.
    I'm also interested in the HHO stan meyer fuel cells but so far I haven't seen anyone selling a conversion tube like the one stan meyer used. Most of these fuel cells are about boosting your gas milage. I don't want to play that game. I want to do a total conversion to run on water so I can tell them to take the $4 gas and shove it. This problem is only going to get worse. I'm pretty mechanically inclined and can build things well but I don't have a lot of time or money to put into things that are not going to work.
    I've looked at the Bendini motor videoes by ~imhotep~ and the concept looks interesting but those things are just little toys. I want to run a whole house. Is it possible to scale it up? If so how?

    Power for car and your home...

    Hi Tim,

    Your wishes seem to parallel my own. Here are some thoughts that may prove useful to you:

    If you want to run your vehicle completely on Hydrogen, you will need to be able to generate around 7 liters per minute of HHO. That's a difficult task if relying on electrolyzers. A better way to go, if you intend to use Hydrogen for your fuel, is to use metal-hydride storage tanks. The tanks are about twice the size of a hand held propane torch cylinder, and are filled with granulated hydrides which soak up Hydrogen like a sponge soaks up water. They provide the safest and most efficient method possible for utilizing Hydrogen to power a vehicle. Go to the following link for more details, and scroll to the bottom of the page to see 4 of these tanks installed in the small cargo area of a 1994 Corvette. United Nuclear - Hydrogen Fuel Systems The Vette has a range of 350 miles on the 4 small tanks. A commercial Hydrogen generator is used to fill and pressurize the tanks, and can be operated by solar or wind power for zero cost refills. Of course you could use a combination of solar, wind and Bedini machines to generate the needed power to operate the Hydrogen generator. And for an efficient system, you would want to have at least 2 sets of tanks, so that one set is being recharged while another is being utilized. Cost for such a system? Around $5,000 or so. Sounds like a lot, but consider that you would never again have to pay for another tank full of gasoline.

    An even better option, though one requiring a far greater degree of modification, would be to convert your vehicle for use with an electric motor, and use a 12 coil Bedini machine (stored in the trunk) and/or or a solid state Tesla Switch device to keep the batteries charged. Electric motors are 2 times or more efficient than internal combustion engines (ICE), and you could even think about improving the efficiency further by converting the motor (using one of Peter Lindemann's ideas for reduction or elimination of back EMF). See this video for one very neat in-car ICE to electric motor conversion: YouTube - ELECTRIC VEHICLE SURGE TECHNOLOGY NO BATTERIES NO GAS

    Next, to power your home, that depends quite a bit upon what climate you live in. If you live in Maine, like I do, you will require considerably more power than if you live in Virginia. So start by figuring how much energy you have used during peak periods of use. In the northern states that would be during winter, and in the southern states it would be during summer. Also think about what you want to accomplish. Do you simply want to generate your own electricity, or do you want to be totally self-sufficient and have no more utility bills? If the latter is the way you want to go, then unless you have a lot of money to burn you will need to tackle this in steps. Think about using multiple energy systems integrated to work together to provide all your needs. See the following diagram of such a system for an idea of what you can do:
    Then decide what systems you want to integrate, and start working on the most logical starting point. For example, a multiple coil Bedini machine could produce enough energy to fully charge some impressive battery banks to power your home, generate Hydrogen, and have the mechanical potential to possibly drive a small hydrosonic pump that could provide a hot water supply to a storage tank and/or pre-heat water before it enters your home heating system's boiler. But don't stop there - consider adding some rooftop solar panels and water heating solar collector tubes, a solar powered steam engine, and a wind turbine. And that's just the tip of the iceberg, so to speak. There are so many practical ways to harness energy that you could spend years just reading about them. The important thing is to figure out where you want to start, and then concentrate your efforts on achieving the first logical step. For further discussion and ideas along these topics, see the following thread, and start reading at post #9:

    Best of luck to you in your pursuit of energy independence,
