Latest developments in the Directory:OC MPMM Magnet Motor open source project.
Added a new video from Alsetalokin (May,11): http://yirkha.fud.cz/whipmag/Whipmag-whatever-20080511-REPACK-HIRES-PROPER.avi
5 new videos available from Alsetalokin: http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=940933a6c22ce0527069484bded33bcd050c2eea34889a06
Several lessons have been learned from "Whipmag Phase I" (October 2007 thru April 2008). These are considered important for future replication and testing. The list continues to grow as replicators compare observations and provide feedback. Specifically, the parts list is being re-evaluated as are testing methods.
Lessons learned relate to the following: Stator Bearings, Metal Tables, Flex-mount Spindle, GW/AGW/GW Acceleration, Rotor Magnet Strength, etc.

Directory:Electromagnetic > OS:MPMM:Variant:Harvey - Video shows a modified MPMM motor that involves tying a stator magnet to a coil and circuit to coordinate its pumping action to keep the motor running at a constant speed. "The unique nature of this approach is that the rotor is propelled by the stator, not the solenoid."
OS:MPMM:Replications - doesn't accelerate but he's had lots of fun with it.
OS:MPMM:Replications:Douglas K. Furr - He has not been able to get it to accelerate or maintain speed. This could be attributed to several important differences between his replica and the original, including magnet strength, device material, holding screws.
OS:MPMM:Replications > OS:MPMM:Replications:Bruce TPM - Placing a loose rotor magnet on top of the round stator magnet, Bruce_TPU said he was able to repeatedly achieve acceleration for about two seconds, and sometimes sustained rotation. (PESWiki Feb. 2, 2008)
OS:MPMM:Replications > OS:MPMM:Replications - "I had a sustained rotor ... while fooling around around with the stators. The stators were not rotating but oscillating slightly (and with a rod mag attached to each stator -- like I said I was tinkering!), the rotor ... held at around 300rpm." (PESWiki Feb. 1, 2008)
Directory:OC MPMM Magnet Motor - Third video from Alsetalokin enables visualization of the attraction and repulsion cycles as the rotor magnets spin anti-gear-wise to the rotation of the stator magnets, and why the ratio of rotor:stator speed is 1:4. (PESWiki Jan. 24, 2008)
OS:MPMM:Replications > OS:MPMM:Replications:variablestatus - A loose variant replica only decelerates. It does illustrate rotating magnetic field interactions at a distance of a few inches. (PESWiki Jan 22, 2008)
OS:MPMM:Replications > OS:MPMM:Replications:vipond50 - "Today after reconfiguration of the Stator magnets to a dual bearings, I had a approximately one minute self operation of the device and maintained a constant RPM once Stator Sync occurred."
Nikolabackwards sents Overconfident a Directory:OC MPMM Magnet Motor. This one shows the unit being disassembled, then being thrown in the trash.
Directory:OC MPMM Magnet Motor Awesome, professionally rendered spoof. "The whipmag has become a big budget high drama movie, and this is the trailer. Coming Soon... Well not really, its in the trash." (by eyepatchentertainmen YouTube Jan. 18, 2008)
Omega_0 jig suggestion - Overunity forum user proposes some designs for more rapid finding, optimizing, and characterization of the effects.
OS:MPMM:Replications:LaFonte:Mark - Though they've made a diligent attempt at replicating the design faithfully, they've not been able to achieve any accelleration or speed maintenance.
OS:MPMM:Replications > "Mark has spent 48 hours on this and has not observed any overunity." (Butch LaFonte Jan. 17, 2008 2:00 pm Mountain)
OS:MPMM:Replications > OS:MPMM:Replications:omnibus - "After the initial spin, a definite acceleration is observed, which so far still cannot be sustained as long as alsetalonkin's but the effect is definitely there." (Jan. 16, 2008)
OS:MPMM:Replications > OS:MPMM:Replications:hydrocontro - User "hydrocontro" proposes that this counter-rotating stator design accomplishes what he observed in another magnet motor design he built which only worked if the stator were held by hand. He also observes that his MPMM replica "spins better one direction (CCW) then the other (CW)". (PESWiki Jan. 15, 2008)
OS:MPMM:Safety - page posted
OS:MPMM:Replications > LaFonte Group OC replication status - "Mark received correct magnets today and installed them and has been testing for several hours, but has not had any self running indications so far." (Jan. 14, 2008)
OS:MPMM:Replications > OS:MPMM:Replications:CLaNZeR - Using a temporary stator magnet configuration, awaiting arrival of the proper stator magnets, Sean CLaNZeR showed brief acceleration in his replication of "Overconfident's" all-magnet motor built by Al... As far as we can tell, this marks the first successful replication of the effect to any extent. (PESWiki Jan 14, 2008)
