Videos by Mylow relating to the Mylow Magnet Motor open source project.

Please list the most significant first, and the more historic ones lower, preceded by instructional segments.

This page is a supplement to Mylow's YouTube user page: which listed his videos as they were posted by him chronologically. He deleted that account (back-ups below) on around Apr. 5. Then, on April 9, he started a new user account at



High-Res. Video Download

  • pre MIB high-res videos - One of the files is the "my lab" video from March 17, and the other is the March 22 video just prior to the glass table video. (Mylow_Magmo; May 26, 2009 9:47 pm Mountain)


On the evening of March 20, 2009, Mylow took down all his videos from YouTube due to a perceived threat against his family. Sterling spoke with him the next morning to help him realize that it was just some forum members being obnoxious, or even urging him to be cautions, not as a threat, but as a favor. Mylow began reposting the videos that evening, and had re-posted them all by the end of the next day. However, the video numbers will be different, and the first posting video links will be dead.

Then again, on the evening April 4, 2009, he took down all but one of his videos. [1] On April 9, he came back as projectmagma, but then deleted the material in protest on May 2, 2009. [2] On May 2, 2009 he came back as, posting his motor running on a glass table. He then deleted that account on May 17, in protest over TinselKoala's allegations of having proven his fraud. A screenshot of his parting statement can be seen here. On May 21, he came back as magmapowered for a day or two, posting a video admitting to and apologizing for the fish string fakery.

  • MYLOW121363 User Videos Archive - Mylow deleted all but the Howard Johnson photos video from his account later in the day on April 4, 2005. Then he deleted his user account entirely later in the day on April 5, 2009. This page is an archive of one of two pages from YouTube of his videos as they existed before he deleted his account. (PESN; Apr. 6, 2009)

Back-up Locations

Fish-line Fakery Admitted

On May 21, Mylow admitted that he had faked many of his videos. He said he was under durress. He also showed his progress on the "cupcake" video. See story. YouTube : bad video ID !

  • M2U00207 – video # 4 part 5. 6 bar magnet configuration (working smot device ) ???? next video will show all magnets on the rotor disk remember gaps are not the same on the rotor magnets. (YouTube by magneticmotor1; May 13, 2000)
  • Back-up by PES Network, Inc.

Version 2.0

Glass Table Demo; May 3, 2009

Glass Table Demo; May 2, 2009

  • In this demo, Mylow shows his all-magnet motor sitting on a glass-top table, starting from zero then slowly accelerating through nearly the duration of the video. He also shows a top view as well as a view under the motor. He also shows his face. His wife is heard in the video as well, witnessing the motor and concurring that there are no hidden wires or other contraptions, but that the spinning motion is just from magnets repelling magnets.

Glass table (brief due to rotor magnets crashing into stator magnet)

(3:49 minutes)

  • howard johnson magnetic motor - glass table demo magnets smaches together stators is weak . (YouTube] by MYLOW12136, March 22, 2009)
  • The video was turned off as you hear the rotor magnets begin hitting the stator magnet because the aluminum base of the stator holding rack was slipping too easily against the glass surface, even though he had tape to try to hold it in place. This resulted in rotor magnets being dislodged from the aluminum rotor disc.
  • Mylow plans to post another video of the device on a glass table, panned back so you can see the entire aparatus as he starts it up, and then holding the camera still for like three minutes, then moving the camera to another angle, and holding it still, etc.

The Lab

(1:04 minutes)

  • howard johnson magnetic motor - checking in on my device and lab . (YouTube) [Originally at d-ZtSiEHmUU by MYLOW12136; March 17, 2009]
  • Says the device ran through the night, maintaining the same speed (does not document with a tachometer).

Set of Seven Magnets with Permeability Plate

In process of shooting some videos about his replication process, Mylow has taken some time to demonstrate one set of seven rotor magnets going by the stator magnet. He's added what he calls a "permeability plate" that Howard Johnson appeared to have used in his Stonehenge motor.

Disc Leveled

  • howard johnson magnetic motor - Table not level; disk is now level with spacer. Watch the rotors and how they react. (YouTube by MYLOW12136; March 29, 2009]

Magnet Sets Overview

(9:54 minutes)

  • Mylow Describes the Magnets Used in His Varios Magnet Motors - This is a back-up copy with notations of a video Mylow posted on April 15, 2009. It's the last video he posted since getting spooked again by another visit of some government bully types. (YouTube; April 21, 2009)
  • This video provides an important overview of the different magnet combinations that Mylow has used in his various working systems, which have included at least four iterations, the latest being very different from the first three. He has not posted a video of the latest working motor, but describes it here in this video near the end. The most recent video he posted of his preliminary work for this new configuration can be seen at Since that video, he put the bar magnets all the way around the rotor and used a different stator magnet.

Notes about Howard Johnson's Stonehenge Motor

Mylow says that his "ahah" moment was when he noticed that the photos of Howard Johnson's motor were not the same as the patent drawings. He chose to go with the picture. In this video he points out elements in the picture that he thinks are key, including the channel-shaped stator magnet and the large gaps between rotor magnet sets, as well as the small gaps between magnets in each set.

Magnet Polarities

MARCH 22 NOTE: The diagram Mylow posted on March 18 turns out to be incorrect when it comes to the channel alnico magnets. The compass video he just uploaded shows that they are similar to the stator crescent magnets. He said the orientation of the rotor magnets around the perimeter of the rotor wheel is "North up". Before he realized the true polarity via the compass, he used a bar magnet to make sure all the magnets were of the same polarity when he installed them. After he had them on, he went around the wheel with the bar magnet in repulse mode to double check that they were all on in the same polarity.

Analysis of his glass table video from May 2 shows rapid acceleration at first, then reaching an equilibrium speed at around 5 minutes, which is maintained to the end of the ~10-minute video.
