"Bob" from Utah County's replication of There was an error working with the wiki: Code[1] as part of the open source project.

Though he has used the magnets and configuration called for in the plans Sterling has prepared, so far, after many different attempts at trying different magnet arrangements, Bob has not yet been able to get his motor to accelerate like what appears in some of Mylow's videos. He has integrated some clever techniques that might be of benefit to others seeking to replicate Mylow's motor.

On May 8, he delivered this motor to Mylow via UPS, overnight, Sat. delivery and Mylow subsequently has been showing this motor in his OS:MYLOW:Plans:Version 2.0:Instructional Videos. Mylow got that motor to run on May 12 using just 6 rotor magnets. The plans for replicating that version are available at OS:MYLOW:Plans:Version 2.1 and http://MylowPlans.com

Bob has another aluminum disc he's using for his own replication, though the one he sent Mylow is superior. It wasn't easy talking him into sending it because he felt he was getting close, but he was gracious in doing so. -- Sterling

Posted another video (below) Sterling trying to find right magnet combo on Mylow magnet motor replica

April 10, 2009

Brief report of my attempt so far - I (Sterling) spent about six hours playing with the set-up Bob made, and had some close calls, but no full rotation yet. I came up with the idea of gluing the sets to plastic, which I can then move easily, without having to re-glue everything every time I want to move things over. Hot glue gun is very fast and forgiving. I also came up with a way to easily space and align the small gap between magnets in a set, using a hanger from the center post and putting a small plastic jig in the right position.

Replication Attempt of Mylow's All-Magnet Motor by Bob of Utah County (Part 1 of 2) - On the evening of April 7, 2009, I got a phone call from someone (prefers to remain anonymous for now we'll call him "Bob") here in Utah County who has been working on replicating the Mylow all-magnet motor since just a few days after Mylow posted his first video on March 17, showing his motor accelerating then reaching an equilibrium speed. He had integrated some clever techniques that might be of benefit to others seeking to replicate Mylow's motor. Bob's replica embodies the elements I have recommended in the plans that I have made available based on my best understanding, per many phone and email conversations with Mylow, as well as from his videos and from input from the several forums.

Replication Attempt of Mylow's All-Magnet Motor by Bob of Utah County (Part 2 of 2) - In looking at Bob's magnets, I realized that the photo we have had on our website and in my plans for the rotor magnets from "Eclipse" does not match up with the rotor magnets I saw on Bob's device. Because Bob is very familiar with much of the discussion on this technology, he was able to identify the photo we have on his site as coming from another source than Eclipse and he will be conveying their contact information to me. The channel on the part number M4144ANK magnets is significantly smaller compared to the channel in Mylow's magnets. (YouTube April 9, 2009)

Ideas for Timing Magnets on Mylow's Motor Replication - One idea was to glue the rotor magnet sets to plastic strips that I can then move easily, without having to re-glue everything every time I want to move things over. The hot glue gun Bob left with me is very fast and forgiving. It comes right off the plastic and the magnet, yet holds the magnet well enough for the low speeds we anticipate. Another ides was a way to easily space and align the small gap between magnets in a set, using a hanger from the center post and putting a small plastic jig in the right position. There are some interesting preliminary results, but alas, I couldn't get it to work (accelerate, full rotation, maintain speed) before I finally went to bed at 2:00 am. (YouTube April 10, 2009)

My attempts on April 10, 2009. Some arrangements give braking effect, with significant cogging, some give a very smooth rotation. Some seem to want to propel the disc along. But I still haven't found the combination that will give enough push to keep it going to accelerate then achieve a nominally constant equilibrium speed like Mylow appears to have done with his motor.

While I'm frustrated at how hard this is to get the right timing, this exercise of doing this for about 12 hours total now, makes me yet mor confident that Mylow really has done what appears in his videos. It also makes me realize the gift he appears to have to be able to get four combinations to work now.

One thing I did to document the accellerative effect, was to do a spin-down-time test. With the stator magnet all the way in the middle, spinning from 50 rpm (as measured with an optical tachometer via two tabs on the disc then dividing by two) down to a stop took 61 seconds (average of two tests). But one of the combinations show later in this segment took 67 seconds (average of three tests). -- Congress:Founder:Sterling D. Allan

Overview

Bob (pseudonym) had this replicated just a few days after Mylow first posted his full-rotation video on March 17. So far, after many different attempts at trying different magnet configurations, Bob has not yet been able to get his motor to accelerate like what appears in some of Mylow's videos.

Bob contacted Sterling on April 7 and came over to show him his replication.

He has integrated some clever techniques that might be of benefit to others seeking to replicate Mylow's motor.

Bob's replica embodies the elements Sterling has recommended in the plans he's posted.
