It came to me the other day. I was reading a book which has nothing to do with technology and I had an epiphany. Stan's device and Bob Boyce's device are the same in operation. They both use harmonics.
It wasn't really clear to me before. Until I looked at it from this other way, a way that I had never approached it before. Then not only did it come so clear, it's obvious. In Stan's figures where he shows the cycling of his circuit at what he calls 50% duty cycle, those images aren't of a 50% duty cycle. They are of a cycle that is 100% when it is on but it is only left on half of the time. Which is not the same thing as 50% duty cycle.
In 50% you would turn on the circuit and allow the pulse to rise, but you would cut it off short of it making it's full time (by a half), and then in it's normal time to occur again, you would repeat. So you almost get a sawtooth looking figure. That's not what Stan depicts. He shows in his figure of the output shown on a scope claiming that his circuit operates on it's normal cycle (maybe 38k?) but then it is only left on for so many cycles then he shuts it off for so many cycles, and repeats this pattern.
So the difference is where do you inject the two signals on top of one another so that they can mix and perform the work that they do together. The Boyce design (which I like better in the circuit side of it), mixes them by making the two circuits have their own wrappings on the toroid. The Stan one mixes the circuits onto the same wrap on the coil. What I like about Stan's is the use of the pipe inside of a pipe. I think cell design is better in this piece of it as it isn't so difficult to setup the plate area as Boyce's system.
Boyce does bring a lot of the knowledge to the front of how to balance all of these elements (which we've never heard from Stan), but are very valuable pieces of information to make a system operate efficiently. Knowing how to size the toroid and the wire and the, etc. to the load based on output and impedance, etc. All of that stuff is very crucial in making this thing work.
So I'm waiting on my house to sell so I can move, once that's done I'll be back on trying to make this system easier to reproduce the effect of. More over, I wanted to send this email so that people working on making this stuff happen have a better understanding of what really is happening so that it isn't such a mystery. Harmonics. That's it.
Make a circuit you can move to tune into your setup (plates, coil, water, etc) make a circuit that can do 50% of that (for real) so you can have a harmonic and away you'll go. I'd suggest to use Boyce's system to tune with and mix signals with (on the toroid) and Meyer's tube inside of a tube for ease of plate to plate alignment. The other thing that Meyer's pipes allows for is the amount of energy equally being distributed over all plates involved. Bob's unit requires a very high level of accuracy for it to be super efficient. Don't forget to treat yer tubes too. Everyone who's gotten close to this thing has said there is a powdery looking coating to the tubes before they really take off.
There's my two cents. Plus whatever coinage you have to count for the revelation coming through while reading an inspirational book. Very interesting indeed.
