  • canīt resist to write again, just short:
    how many turns you do on 1 winding on your armature ?
    canīt see this on the picture.
    you wind a wire from contactsegment to the back iron core many times and
    return 180 degr. on the segment vis a vis ?

    and there are not 4 blanks in the photo, you did blank every 2nd !!
    (is this photo obsolete ?)

    cheers

      It was a long time ago when I wound that armature, I think it was 30. It ran on 3 to 4 volts at 4 amps. 4 amps was the limit on my variac. On a more recent armature there was only 2 turns per winding and 6 turns on the powered field winding. Obviously the current was huge and too big for my meters. This was based on a yanmar starter motor. I am no longer in possession of these devices so I cant give you any new pictures.

      If I understand you, yes. From one segment, round 90 degrees to the first slot on the armature. Then wind a turn around the left side of the shaft to the slot 180 degrees from the first, the next turn is around the right side of the shaft and so on until the slot is full. Then pas the wire to the commutator segment opposite the first

      Correct, The small armature was my first attempt and like an idiot I did not realise that leaving only one segment blank would give no off time. This worked out well for the MADMAG but did not give as strong transformer actions as I wanted. So to simulate this I fed the motor with Half wave rectified AC and got interesting results. Later I replaced the carbon brushes with spring steel (actually razor blades). The next motor was a starter motor and I was working on getting the sweep angle correct when all my equipment was taken (no conspiracy. I got a divorce). At this point with no equipment, I decided to try and get people interested in my work so the development could continue.That was about 3 years ago. I will be ready to start building again in the next few months.

        Wow! Take a man's tools. What a witch.

        • witches all over the world...

          sad. really. But a wife is usually no inventor.
          maybe i face same faith in the future when I follow my research ...
          *thinking...*

          • The curiosity has been overwhelming, regarding has anyone in this world to this date, finally design a functioning machine that actually mimics what that German Engineer put together and Sgt Lockridge found? Forget what Lindemann/Bedini attempted to "think" what it does, but look at those old pictures and then you'd conclude this is not a 230VAC machine. The Armature of a 6VDC Bosch Generator can only produce up to 10+VDC. You have to go back in time and understand what those materials were at the time. Those metals making up the Armature, the Stator, the Mag Wire, all those materials we take for granted in 2021. But not available in the 1940's. Who has done this?

            • Power pack,
              Some of us spent much resources on this idea and I personally lost interest after all the effort. I agree with your post things aren’t the same as during that time period. Therefore I’m into other projects at this time.

              • Powerpack. If you think about it what was a generator designed to do . Either 6 or 12 volt. Run 2 head lamps and a heater motor, That the basis of the old style generators..Through the brushes switching on the commutator the collapse of the magnetic feild goes back in to all the other windings of the armature and cant be collected there. So i believe the switching or pulsing unit was done outside of the case with one of the wires of the tri coil grounded to the case and the other wire to one of the brushes doing the switching. The tri coil acts like a capacitor at that point and removes the arc from the switching brushes at that point . Which in turn raises the voltage through the other windings on the tri coil. This is still a work in progress. Still kicking around ideas.
