Can I ask a dumb question here?  Why was this thread started in a section of the forum that is supposed to be about alternative operating systems for a PC?  This thread has nothing to do with operating systems for a PC.

Good question. I could not find a way to start it in the right section..
Is there a way to change that?

Here is a 2 dimentional drawing that may help understand the basic movement.

I recently worked on this again but did not have much luck at increasing the power.
It seemed that not much of the mag attraction made it to the end of the metal so I gave that up.

My work with the Lafonte cascaded has failed after 3 embodiments due to imprecision.
But I was able to demonstrate with a manual fixed setup that the stacking of magnets
from a cascaded device does turn the repel on and off at the other end of that rotor.
The video is here https://youtu.be/lBQ38F_WbUs


So the concept is valid but not  adequately embodied. I ordered some better bearings
to reduce the tolerance. So far I have had to make my own bearings out of long rods
for stability but that takes time.

Stay tuned.

  I tend to use inline skate bearings for mock ups for testing only. I can find a pair of skates at the local thrift for around $7 here. Not sure what your source would be. Still 16 of them for the price and you can always double them up for strength.

Thanks Thaelin. I have used them too and they are fine for 150 lbs of weight but
whit small forces the bearings are sticky and I use kerosene to clean and lubricate.
But for for the magnetic pull it require 2 like the farm gate and then a 45 degree
tightener...   When I get it bigger I'll probably go there but my preference is front
bicycle hubs that are fully adjustable and even they have to be thoroughly cleaned
and re oiled.
I am half done on my next version but I am tied up for 2 days so it will be Wed or Thurs
till I know how cascading works.

I have made some real progress by serializing several ramps. So look for a report after Thanksgiving and have a good and safe holiday and be very grateful.

From previous ignored posts. Butch Lafonte taught us that a moving magnet will roll easily on metal if kept equidistant - nothing special but
1. by exploiting this you can escape from one piece of metal to another over a small gap.
2. Then by arranging the the metals as "ramps" when the magnet above slides from the high end of the ramp to the low end the metal will lift up giving more work out than in
3. the sticky spot is then ignored by moving the magnet back where it started from
4. but better than that is easily move that magnet  past the sticky spot on to the top of the second ramp removing the lost work in to reset back to the top of the first ramp.

Those skilled in the arts will know what to do next.

Hint - that means start at the bench....

Plus I have a few enhancements hidden in my pocket.

Over the weekend I was able to make another setup with 3 ramps and they performed well. The concept is solid. So now the real challenge is how to use the excess power.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Major success today. I have found a way to use closer stronger and escape giving 440% or more OU. Except for some enhancements its all explained in this forum.
Again I have to give credit for Butch Lafonte for his ideas that lead to this success. I just wish I knew what happened to him.
