Hi, due to the limitations and expense of the large Neo magnets and electromagnets to push the pendulum used on the Gram project I am changing the input configuration, that is similar to a water powered triphammer configuration. I will use 5 balance beams with 25 pound weights. One beam will re-set as the rest are falling.

using 6 balance beams, it should create a condition of 125 pounds will always be falling

kajunbee:
If I'm understanding your device correctly 100 lbs. will be falling only on first half cycle. On the second half of the cycle it will be lifting 100 lbs. As I see it once the first weight reaches the bottom it would have to be returned all the way to the top before the other 4 levers bottom out. Which means it would have to go up at a faster rate than it went down. But maybe I'm missing something.

Hi, only one 25 weight resets at a time, maybe the example videos will help.

All the parts are fabricated I should have more to report in a few days. Cheers

kajunbee:
Ok, one other point that your probably already aware of. It will take some amount of weight just to balance those levers. This will subtract from your expected 25 lbs. i believe.  You may have to go with 30 lbs. or more to offset this loss. Unless you think you can live with it.
