Post by: robbyd on August 19, 2007, 04:33:56 PM
Did someone tried to replicate a (working or not) Hendershot Generator ???
Or try to understand how this baskedcoil oscillator works ??

@all
I have found this guy working on the hendershot motor.

Yeah. That would be me. Hello.

Here is an interesting observation I made this weekend:

WHY 57 pegs?

Hendershot's coil used 57 pegs that are 1/8 inch diameter.
His coil is 5 15/16 inch in diameter.

So the question I had was WHY 57 pegs?
In attempting to wire up such a coil, 57 to me seems like overkill.
I do, however, entertain the notion that Hendershot selected
57 for a specific reason.

In playing around with the math a bit, and with inspiration from
Hubbard's assertion that Hendershot is using Hubbard's idea,
I've come up with a WAY that 57 pegs could have been selected..

Let
D be coil diameter - 5.9375 inch
d be peg diameter - .125 inch

pegs = round_to_odd( PI * D / (d * phi * phi))

were phi is 1.618 (golden ratio).

By using phi here, Hendershot may have been trying
to create a very specific angle where the wires cross --
one that is a function of PHI.

Hubbard used the golden ratio for his coil ... so
perhaps Hendershot used it as well in this way.
This is PURE speculation on my part ... but it
is interesting that it works out to exactly 57 pegs.

I tryed to undersatnd how it works and finally ( I tryed since 2004) I have made solution - I think that is double part of resonance reciever with coherent mixer and modulator for 60 hz.

Post by: forest on September 20, 2011, 11:38:50 PM
First replicate Hubbard then Hendershot may be much easier.
I agree it is two receivers resonating on schematic but pictures of device shown complex coil and this is the secret in my opinion.
A lot of help would be if Hendershot junior could connect picture with schematic.
Can he ? I'm sure.

Here's the schematic I followed. I got it from the pdf provided by one of the members in this thread. I got the video from Youtube, and I traced and retraced the wirings, and got zero effect.

What I'd like to see is if someone here has actually completed a working replication of the generator.

what did you use for your solenoid coils?
I tried to make very high winding coils; but then the resistance is too high, even though I got more voltage from moving the bar in front of the magnet...

I used 40 turns of magnet wire, 0.95 mm as specified in the parts list. I'm showing the photo too, just in case you'd find what I did wrong, and I 'd sure appreciate any help to make this work.

I showed this to an Electronics & Communications Engineer, and he said it won't work, so I told him "Maybe you know that, But I sure don't!"

Thanks in advance.

They always say that when they hear "free energy", without to even watch it closer. The word is ruled trough the control of energy and these people are paid for looking away. This is about the most important market in the world. Mankind pays thousands of billions each year for energy to a tiny elite of parasites. They don't want free energy. Ok. enough about politics.


Sorry, I am not familar with the Hendershot principle. You may want to search youtube for other replicators, get in contact.


However, your device looks great, hats off. One thing that fascinates me about Lester Hendershot is the thesis about his connection to Charles Lindbergh. It is said, Lindberghs plane would have needed 2 tons of kerosine to fly across the atlantic ocean, but his entire plane was only 1 ton...and their friendship is documented.


Good luck with your device!

I appreciate the encouragement. FYI, I have no background in electronics, and I just did this because it just felt right. I saw the Hendershot schematics offered here was downloaded more than 164,000 times, so I thought that maybe out of the 164,000 downloads maybe a hundred or a dozen could have done some work on it, and maybe one person, just one person could have succeeded. But if NONE has ever succeeded in this, then maybe I ought to try something else.

I visited the Hendershot generator Facebook page, and read of someone who asked if anyone in the world has a working model. The answer was evasive, and on my next visit, his question was deleted. I think that action says something.

But I'm not giving up. If this really doesn't work, and NO ONE has made it work, then I'll try something else. Some Free Energy plans are for sale in the internet, and I know many of those are plain scams, but maybe one of them  might be okay. There's the Schauberger Generator, the MASH Generator, the Don Smith Generator, the Bedini Generator, the Shutterhand Generator,and whatever else. I've bought the Don Smith, Schauberger, and Shutterhand Generators. I might try one of those after this one.

But i'd sure appreciate if one person will come out and show he has succeeded in this.

My motivation comes from my weekend work in helping the Typhoon Haiyan victims in my county. I got a first hand view of what climate change will do to our planet in the coming years, of how much and worse devastations may come and we just can't stop them, except through his CAUSE: MAKING AFFORDABLE FUEL-LESS POWER FOR EVERYONE. Cars will run pollution-free, planes will fly to anywhere, homes will have continuous power without having to pay dearly for it. The air will smell good, and forests grow, people will have less diseases. Oh man what a dream!

So back to reality; I STILL NEED HELP on this one, if anyone has ever done this project and succeeded...

Hi


Not sure about the Don Smith Generator being worth the effort. Viktor Schauberger was a genious scientist in the field of vortex and flow, I didn't know he built a generator tho... Tesla and Schauberger are the names that are often used to impress the audience, regardless of the subject. More experienced FE vets rather use Steinmetz and Heavyside to show off  8) ...


There's a german guy on youtube named "Herr Segelohrenbob" who recently replicated the Hendershot and did some Oscilloscope tests, you may try to contact him.


There may be some people for every FE device, claiming to be the nexus of it but actually they're not possessing one single working device, but that doesn't mean that the device is a hoax. It's the same with religions. Often the spirits are not in the temples...

Thank you Artoj and Dieter.

I'm off to the typhoon damaged areas, but when I come back, I will resume the work. Whatever comes out of this, my gratitude goes to you both for being so supportive.

Artoj, your schematic is easier to follow. I thank you for taking the effort. Dieter, thank you for leading me to better alternatives. Yes, I will look them up.

We're all here to leave a legacy, and this probably is THE ONLY CAUSE that can SAVE THE PLANET. All else simply skirts the core problem.

Viktor Schauberger was a genious scientist in the field of vortex and flow, I didn't know he built a generator tho...

attached picture is the generator drive... the top is fed with water through a ribbed funnel to get the water turning, which is dropped on the drive gear thing of the generator...


it was claimed he used such a device at his cabin.... but I can't find the original text; image stolen from peswiki page...
http://peswiki.com/index.php/Viktor_Schauberger   


This youtube guy is a metal worker that worked with schauberger's teardrop shapes... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OkajCndsB5o  ... he has a drive gear like the picture...


But ya sorry; should keep hendershot in the background.  I think it's probably an am receiver.  I tried generating signal into it a few times, when I saw the russian replication where they sat down and from start to end constructed it, I dug up the parts again and got normal transformers for the 5:1's ... but no further progress. 


Beware of sold FE packages; they are often existing free information wrapped into a bundle with nothing more than you can find on your own.

Hi Artoj,
I see your schematic has a 4th coil around the basket weave. Do you have specs for this? or do I assume the same specs as the L2 and L3 in Hendershot's schematics? I also noted the lower capacitance ratings on the condensers. Hendershot uses 500 and 1000uf, while you show 80 and 40.  If I continue using the 1000 uf, will it change the outcome?

Please forgive my basin questions. I don't know much about electronics.

Thanks.

Hi Skysabre
I have clarified the hand drawn schematics, so you can understand how his circuit works. These caps are specified by Lester in all his writing. They were very popular in radio circuits in the 1920 to the 1950's, Most of his ideas come from the early radio that was used back in the 1920's, the basket weave coil was a big seller to radio builders back then. I have 4 of the other Hendershot circuits broken down in the same way, the deep knowledge gained cannot be communicated in a forum environment, the only way is to build it, then proceed to test your assumptions of his designs against scientific methodologies.

There'a a lot of rewiring needed, but that's okay. I do this evenings after dinner, and I'm having fun so far.
Title: Re: Did someone tried to replicate a Hendershot Generator ???
Post by: Skysabre on April 16, 2014, 10:38:44 AM
So sorry, the rewiring didn't work. I used the same capacitors in the Hendershot diagram, and then tested the unit. Later, I added neodymium magnets to the bar magnet. Still, no reaction.

Any more ideas? I'm not about to give up, not just yet.

Title: Re: Did someone tried to replicate a Hendershot Generator ???
Post by: dieter on April 17, 2014, 02:17:43 AM
Can you explain me in simple terms what the operation principle should be?


I only have a vague guess, when there are magnets and caps, it may be some sort of Back-MMF delay.

Title: Re: Did someone tried to replicate a Hendershot Generator ???
Post by: d3x0r on April 17, 2014, 03:45:00 AM
Something I noted was in the writings that he wound the capacitors on coffee cans (for the reason of size was right) but old coffee cans were ferrous... so you have a capacitor with a core that is also interacting with the coil... so while it could be a simple LC oscillator tank (2 of them off-phase)...


kind of like a horizontal opposed airplane engine pumps one side and then the other...


but anyway the C could be variable due to charges moving in the core... and or the capactitance chargine will change the free electrons able to particiapate in induction?


It was written as if 'this is the way things will always be' so it's hard to interpret some... but it appears that the russian one used normal barrel caps, and those are aluminum so that's not part of the idea.


Ideally a sign that it was going to would would be if you could get enough charge in the solenoid to affect the bar ... and conversly have a violent enough motion of the bar that it triggers the coils with enough voltage to result in enough current in other parts to do useful things...


First time I plugged this into LTSpice it generated infinite voltage; but it was over idealized and adding a capacitance in the solenoids fixed that issue....


The circuit is basically a few coils connected between capacitors with the other side of capacitors attacthed to other coils.  A few of the coils are also coupled at a 5:1 voltage transform ratio.


I would have expected conventional transformers to have too much reluctance/resistance; but my toroids that were 6:30 windings didn't help (didn't hurt probably but would have been more susceptable to lower voltages) (I would think)


the problem is there's no power supply to the thing other than the moving magent so it's hard to know how to put in a voltage to even see if there is any resonant tuning)


Hans Coler (http://www.overunity.com/14422/free-energy-device-70watts-by-hans-coler/#.U08xx_ldV48) was the other one I was thinking of that works similarly

Skysabre,


just in case you won't make it work, here's a link to something that seems to work easily and convinced me more than anything else:





 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Hr2C1vvvx4

But you really have to make shure your grid consumption is not negative, otherwise you may be visited by special inspectors, cause they may notice your use of reactive power, and they hate it.

It would be best to use the system based on your own AC generator, that may run on car batteries, that can be recharged.

Your ideas will be most welcome. It doesn't matter if there is no guarantee. If it can be done, and is affordable, then I will try it out.

Thanks to this community. Let us remember Thomas Edison's persistence!

Transformer is 3-5 kilowats. If they heat up, need it disasamble, and all paint with emal, lack and then maybe reglue, not use screw, then it makes it heat up, you can use string tubes, put in it bolts and after bolt put dialectric, to not conect diferent sides. First wound primary like in normal transformer. Then shield of aluminum, How I understand, shield is like shorted turn. Then secondary, then again shield of aliuminum foil or tape like shorted turn. In one transformer is two shields and in other. Capasitor must be in resonance. Then you find resonance it makes vibraite wery loud, then you find, let say, not 50 herc resonance but 150 herc resonance, then it vibrate not that laud. You need find 50 herc resonance, if socket is 50 herc. Here video, there he explaining everything in russian language.

Skysabre,


I thought I got to let you know, Gyulasun just told me there may have been measurement errors in the project I linked to. But as far as I do know, there is nonetheless a certain potential in using caps to "go out of phase"  in order to draw "free" energy (with the power bill in mind)  8) .

looks pretty scary, this circuit. But also rather simple. Do you plan to build one?

Hello Dieter,

It is not just uncertainty that "there may have been measurement errors in the project you linked to", it is sure there was errors, gotoluc clearly described them, he did not simply accept the "armchair explanations".

Gotoluc just addressed this again to member Vince here: http://www.overunity.com/14443/quantum-energy-generator-qeg-open-sourced-by-hopegirl/msg398657/#msg398657 

Of course you have got the full right to question anything and convince yourself by doing many tests yourself, this is the best approach towards reality and this approach is okay to me, no problem,  all I can do is to wish you good luck.

that's a good idea, to scale it down. If you try it I wish you good luck and much success.


Gyulasun,


let me get this straight, are you saying that all results in utilizing reactive power, done in experimental setups by Luc are nullified and reactive power cannot be utilized?


I am not talking about OU, just the question if you could use some energy before the current returns to the wattmeter in a 90° phase shift and would therefor not appear on the power bill?

What if we scale up the foxhole radio, and the output, instead of going to the headphone, goes to the transformer? What if we incorporate the concept of a foxhole radio into the Hendershot/Artoj circuit?

If any of you have some suggestions, let's start with the Artoj modification, and do some changes from there.
Title: Re: Did someone tried to replicate a Hendershot Generator ???
Post by: dieter on April 21, 2014, 04:05:11 PM
I think such a radio is too weak.


The basket-like structure of the coil/Cap reminds me of a broadband radiation collector, used for high voltage collection/transformation. If the magnet is really the only input, then there must be really some weird amplification being performed. How about:
The magnet thingie generates a pulse of medium force, as you would expect it. This pulse goes into a coil. The flyback or bemf of the coil may jump over a sparkgap that is inside the basket like caps, and the entire spark radiation is absorbed by the capacitance, and now there may even an electron avalanche take place.
.Also think about the nails of the "basket-cap", being iron (?) must serve a very special purpose, in being part of a multi-core design.


You may add an input voltage, simulating what tbe magnet is supposedo do.

Dieter,

No, I did not say or mean that.  What I wrote refers to that single particular setup Luc showed in that single video to which he commented the two errors,  and my above forum link to Luc's post refers also to that same video.  No more and no less.

On your second question: yes, one can use some tricks  to "fool" the utility meter (wattmeter) that includes a 90°phase shift so that his or her power bill does not increase significantly or stays the same etc:  I do not consider such tricks as a source to "free" energy, although it may be free for a tricky user.

Gyulasun,


ok, thanks for making this clear. Tricking the power company is not OU, but at least it is something.


I am still not shure if there is any real energy dissipation in utilizing pure reactive power. Shure it must require some energy to provide the grid AC voltage and current, but has the utilization of reactive power any impact on it?


Regards

re reative power demonstration


the whole thing is based on taking a current reading from a place and a voltage reading from another place and saying they can be multiplied to make a power rating...


Might as well be 2 entirely different circuits... the amps from the hot side should be used to relate the voltage on the hot side... and the voltage against the cold side should be used with the amps on the cold side...


saying you have a voltage 'here' and a current 'over here' doesn't mean anything....

I feel tempted to throw in my veto, since in my POV reactive power is it, when current and voltage are out of phase when they pass the cold side of the watt meter, which happens easily with caps and coils. Which is why Motors never have a power factor of 1.0 and AFAIK on the bills a power factor of like 0.7 is most expensive since it is an average PF, and I would add that I could be wrong, but I won't say anything because I think we're getting way off topic, and to maintain respect to the thread opener I suggest: let's get back on topic.


Which was just a way to say "I am right, end of story"  ;D .

Back to the Hendershot project. I tried connecting a car battery to the exciter coils (if that's what they're called), and nothing happened. Then I stuck 2 Neodymium magnets to the bar magnet, and still, nothing happened.  So I connected the load end of the circuit to the electrical outlet, and one of my transformers burned out. I had them made special for this experiment, but they can be repaired.

So I should leave this project and try something else. I purchased some plans which I know are scams. However, they can be good starting points and maybe something can happen from there.

I might open a new thread on a new experiment and start asking questions again.

Thanks for all the help, and some leads. I'll try them out too.

Skysabre.

I feel sorry for you, but I guess that happened to all of us several times already. I can only suggest: stay away from $-plans and never stop thinking out of the box.


Basicly, the energy resources belong to mankind and should be for free anyway, like air. But the good thing is, every now and then new sources of energy are discovered, and we are pioneers in this field.


Good luck!


Regards

Dieter,

Thank you for your sympathy, but really, there's no need to feel sorry for me. I'm only having fun here.

I looked at the reactive generator video that you pointed out, but having no background in electronics, I couldn't make heads or tails of what the guy was saying. I wonder if you know of any circuit diagram I can work on? Thanks.

I might start a new thread on the next project.

Thank you too Artoj for your suggestions.

By the way, do you guys know of any book like "Electronics for Dummies" that I can study in a hurry? or any website that teaches the course for beginners?

Thanks. I'll be back

Hello SkySabre,
Yes, I built a Hendershot Generator just like the video and schematics said to build it. Sorry, it doesn't work. I really didn't believe that it would work, but built one anyway to be absolutely sure.
The schematic calls for two 1:5 Transformers. So to get 110 volts out of the transformer, the device would have to produce 22 volts input. I just didn't believe the design could do that, and it can't.
But it was a lot of fun building it; and I still have good components to use in future projects! 8)
I'm new here, but I'll try to put some pic's of the one I built in this comment.

rc3po,

Hey, nice clean job! I don't know how many we are who did this, but THANKS for posting your work here. Our experiences will prevent others from doing the same, and we can therefore focus our energies elsewhere.

Today, I'm posting the so-called Don Smith Generator which I paid $47.00 for.  In a short while, I will upload the pdf file for everyone to see, and maybe we can share opinions on this one.

I have to admit I have no experience in electronics but I'm joining this forum because this beautiful planet needs saving. I've seen first hand the devastation of a supertyphoon, of tens of thousands of lives lost, of cities leveled to rubble and I think we're late in doing this, BUT NOT TOO LATE.

I'm one dummy in your ranks, but count me in anyway. I can try things. While I'm doing relief and reconstruction work, I can find time for experiments too.

Finally: I'm glad you tried.

Hi Friends,

I started a new topic, "The So-Called Don Smith Generator". I need your advice there.

FYI

Skysabre,

You are welcome, my friend. I've only been studying Electronix for about 14 months now, and I love it.
I'm really interested in these concepts of free-energy & zero-point systems and find them intriguing.
I think you could have got the schematic for the Don Smith Generator for free.
This is a good website to visit; www.free-energy-devices.com/
Have fun and be careful!

excerpt "from the archive of lester hendershot":
 "A very small unit composed of wire, a magnet, several especially designed coils, condensors, collector units, and a few other minor items, will cut this force.  ANOTHER ESPECIALLY DESIGNED MECHANISM WILL POLARIZE IT, GIVING A POSITIVE AND A NEGATIVE CONNECTION TO ANY RESISTANCE AND THE RESULT IS THE GENERATION OF ELECTRICITY."

we forget something???

Thank you, rc3po !

Thanks for the lead...There's a wealth of material to harvest from! I should have joined this forum a long time back! ! !

I'm inclined to pick on projects that can be done using basic materials and components. Maybe we can all use our know-how (mine is zero, but I have time ;D) to design specific components into a chosen project, and those with time and resources can start work. Maybe like a team effort?

Whatever you decide on, that's okay with me.

Finally, THANKS! for a lot of things.

Hi andrea76

If you have any ideas to run this experiment further, please let me know. I haven't taken apart my unit until now, I'd be glad to mess it up again. ;D

A/C doesn't have a positive & negative...
Forget it - it doesn't work and never will. You are wasting your time with the hendershot generator.
I have proven that it is a hoax. If it actually worked, I would be dancing a jig and going to collect my
million $$$.
