Jeffery Lacroix came up with an idea for a magnet motor in 2004, then in 2006 he saw that Mike Brady's Directory:Perendev Power Developments Pty (Ltd) integrates the essential design, minus some particulars which Jeffery implemented in a prototype in 2007.



Free Energy Using Magnets - Jeff Lacroix produces a video of a functioning magnet motor prototype via his design. (MetaCafe Feb., 2007)

Alternate - A copy of the above video, minus the many other non-related video links on the page. (YouTube Mar. 5, 2007)



On Apr. 26, 2007, Congress:Founder:Sterling D. Allan wrote to Jeff:

Lots of questions:

- Will you allow people to come and inspect your prototype?

- would you allow the New Energy Congress to come in and validate your technology?

- what kind of torque are you getting?

- how many have you built?

- when did you first get it running?

- are you going to be posting your plans?

- are you going for commercial implementation?

- are you looking for partners? funding? business expertise? legal advice? etc?

- how long have you run your prototype continuously? (in one setting, total)?

- how many witnesses are there to your prototype?

On April 26, 2007, Jeffery Lacroix responded:

It's a work in progress. To me it's more of sustaining the first burst of energy to get it going. It doesn't seem to be building up energy since it doesn't speed up. So in a way, I look at it more like a battery that stores energy.

My work continues on it.

The video was intended as a means of drawing attention to the work that's being done around the world to develop a magnet motor rather than a video showing a prototype that is supplying energy. Like I said, the device you see in the video will spin, but it's not producing torque to generate power.

As for showing all the details, I'm not ready to do that yet. Maybe in the future. But at the moment I am continuing with things on my own.

Also I'm fallowing the Directory:Steorn Free Energy project. I have a friend that I've been working with for the past year on designs. He found me through your site. He has landed a position with the Steorn R&D program. He has told me that from what he has seen those guys are for real! He has already signed his contracts and they will be starting soon. To be honest I believe they will be the ones to break down the doors and get the worlds attention on magnetic motors.

After that happens, I'm hoping that maybe my work could help a company that is getting into this new field improve their designs. Until then I will just try and help bring attention to the possibilities of a new cheaper, cleaner energy source that is magnetic engines.

Hello, My name is Jeff LaCroix. two years ago I came up with a design for a all permanent magnetic motor. I began to try to build the motor myself. once I got into building it I realized that the tools available to me would not do. I am a man of limited means and money. I didn't know what to do with the idea. 6 months ago I found out about the prendev motor and when I saw it I was saddened to see that his motor was using my principal design. in one way I was happy to see that I was right all along. I realized that my design used the same principal but my motor was different. the whole ratio is higher in my design. so I decided that I could still build mine and it wouldn't be against mike brady's patent. but I can't raise the money to build it. now I see things in my design that are starting to pop up in the new motors being built. I've got to make a move now before it's to late. so I'm looking for some one to partner up with to produce my motor design. mike proved the principal works but my original design I believe is better. if your company is interested in such a project I would love to hear from you.

There is good news and bad news.

The good news is that Brady probably doesn't have IP on his design other than some of the incidental control mechanisms.

The bad news is that neither would you.

But the good news is that if Brady is going ahead anyway, then perhaps you should too.

What I can do is post your message at the Perendev page at PESWiki and send notice of it to the Perendev mailing list (which includes Brady).

I think he would be jealous but also glad for you at the same time. A little competition is good to motivate people to do their best.

Thank you for replying to my email. I wrote to mike the first time I saw his motor. I congratulated him on his working motor and told him I had a design that worked on the same principal but at a higher ratio. I asked him about working together on the project. of course he blew me off. he wrote me back and told me that it was people like us that went against the grain and believed we could do what others say can't be done that made the world go round. good for me and that was it. I'm ready to move forward one way are the other. I just don't know how to do that. I have two questions. who built the perendev replica that you presented at teslatech, and do you know anyone who would be interested in helping me build my design? I know the world needs this energy source and I want to do my part to see it get it. Thank you.

My friend, Douglas [F.], built the prototype in the TeslaTech video. I don't think he would be inclined to spend time building one similar to the Perendev until we get this one going. If you were going to pay him as a regular machinist, then he might be interested. He is very busy, highly talented, and in great demand.

are you saying that the one in the video doesn't work? the feed is poor to my computer and it doesn't play very smooth. from what I saw I thought the motor was working the way it was suppose to. I've been exploring your site a lot since my last email and I'm catching up on what's going on. I never knew that there were so many people on this same project. mike brady's was the only one I had seen. my ideas for the motor came from my own thoughts and not from things I saw others trying to do. your site is great. the work you're doing is great. keep it up and if you come across a individual that is looking for someone like me please feel free to give them my email. I'm not greedy and plan on setting on this design holding out for billions. I would like to make a little money. enough to help me set up my family better than it is now. but the truth is I would rather see the world benefit from something like this than to try to make hundreds of millions.

Hi Jeff,

We never got our 1/4-scale replication to work. Yes it spins, very well, but not of it's own power. It's one fine piece of equipment, except that it doesn't work.

If it is okay with you, I could post your email on our site, and see if there is someone in our readership who might step forward to help you with machining.

A similar situation came up a month ago, and there were at least two offers to do the machine work, with no charge for labor.

We would be glad to post your results once you get it operational, and to post your plans. I think there would be a number of ways that you could receive some financial reward for your efforts, e.g. a company approaching you to advise them as they take it the next step [...].

sounds great. it would be a step in the right direction. yes you can post the emails on your site. if you need some help with you motor I have a great understanding of the perendev motor since he's using my same principal. but he's only scratching the surface of what's possible as my design shows. to be honest I can't believe it works on the ratio he is using. my ratio is 4 times greater. I do not have any patent protection on my design so as you can imagine I am a little worried about just handing over the design. but I'm ready to do something. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for posting my emails. I would like to share some of my work on this principal. it's no secret about the principal of the perendev motor. people are calling it the golden ratio. the video of wayne's boards of magnets show the design open and with the measurement grid drawn out on the boards. callaway's track is also using the same principal. however callaway's model shows that the principal works with a single line of magnets. but the fact of the matter is they are using the bare minimum that it takes to make the cycle work. when I started working on this idea I came to the same conclusion as mike brady did. the golden ratio. but I came to the conclusion that the ratio between push and cog in this design would not be enough to continue the cycle. the best I can tell, brady is using a shielding material on the leading edge of his magnets to reduce the cog of the approaching magnets.

Image:Jeffery Lacroix golden ratio 450.jpg

with the front edge cog reduced it allows the ring that is in transition (from cog to push) the extra little movement to change to push. with that said the video's of the callaway track and wayne's boards are not using shielding. so maybe the design works with out shielding, or it works on a flat plain without shielding but not on a curved plain. in my work on this design I had came to the conclusion that shielding the leading edge of the magnets would help make the transition smoother also. but, the down side of using shielding is that you take power away from the design. so I decided to start work on a design that would allow me to build a motor that would not need a shield on the magnets leading edges. this way I would be using all of the power the magnets had to offer. let's be honest, if you can't make a motors size to power out put feasible then you're wasting your time. also another thing about the design is that as soon as the magnet in full push leaves its position it's running straight into the cog position without the room to fully use the kick it was just given when it jumped through the transition stage. in other words, one ring is pushing, one ring is in transition, and one ring is in cog at all times. so 1/3 of the motors magnets are trying to stop the motor at all times. let's just say the perendev motor is using 192 magnets. that means that 64 magnets are in cog position at all times. what if you could reduce that number dramatically? in my work on this principal I believe that I have come up with a way to do this. again, thank you sterling for posting my emails and I'm looking forward to hearing from others that believe there's a better way.

Revealing what I know about building the Perendev magnet motor - Sterling Allan comes forward with insider info in hopes that it might help the many people out there trying to replicate Michael Brady's all-magnet motor. (PESN July 31, 2010)

Blueprints that Brady conveyed

Photos while in Johannesburg, showing the motor from various angles and in process of being assembled.


Brady's House - including a shot of the kitchen table I was sitting at when a witness confirmed he had seen the motor running

Around Johannesburg - including the machine shop we went to to pick up the newly fabricated motor components (rotors and stators) neighbor Nielson Mandella's home opulence/poverty contrast street vendors

History Snapshots - of various iterations also tried and claimed to work

Aluminum Version (pre-dated the polypropylene version seen in the video)

Plans for the 1/4-scale version by Doug Furr

Pre-Perendev Patent (Expired) - most likely pirated by Brady, with no credit
