Plans for replicating "Version 2.0" of the OS: MYLOW's Magnetic Motor based on Howard Johnson's Design, as part of the open source project. This page is an adjunce to OS:MYLOW:Plans, where information is found about several of the common components such as the rotor disc, the bearing assembly, the stator assembly. - plans for version 2.0 now available.

The following is the open source version. The $25 version by Congress:Founder:Sterling D. Allan at aims to be a clear and concise compilation of the best info available.

Instructional Video Set

Latest: Directory:Magnet Motors > There was an error working with the wiki: Code[1] > OS:MYLOW:Plans:Version 2.0 / OS:MYLOW:Videos > OS:MYLOW:Plans:Version 2.0:Instructional Videos - Having received a new rotor-stator assembly and magnets that are off-the-shelf available, Mylow is now posting a series of instructional videos for people wanting to replicate his bar magnet motor. (PESWiki May 10, 2009)



In this video, Mylow shows the base at the beginning and end of the run. The motor starts from zero then slow accelerates, equilibrating at around 5 minutes then holding the same speed to the end of the ~10-minute video.

ROTOR: Bar Magnets

Bar Magnets Used by Mylow

(Not available, not made?)

Mylow got his magnets originally from Radio Shack three decades ago. They no longer carry these magnets.

Mylow's bar magnet dimensions are 1/2 x 1/2 x 2 inches.

The polarity is magnetized radially (through thickness, not length).

Close Alternative Bar Magnets
Image:CB-65 allmagnetics bar-magnets labeled jp70.jpg

CB-65 from - Ceramic Blocks 3/8” x 3/8” x 1 7/8” (2 pcs). More accurately: 0.393" t, 0.400" w, 1.875" l. Ask for Felix and mention promotion code "PES" for a 5% discount.

Same as item H at (Part No. 07043)

It turns out that these magnets are also available from Home Depot (SKU# 902262)

World Improvement Through The Spirit ministries ( has around a thousand 1/2 x 1/2 x 2-inch ceramic magnets on hand. (minimum order of 50). Remember, just because the magnets are the same size, doesn’t mean they are of the same strength & composition and will behave the same. That has yet to be determined. Contact Timothy Thrapp at +1-330-231-1408 email: wits2011 {at} They want $6.00 for each magnet – which is major gouging.

EUROPEAN SOURCES - EP627 is the closest.

Distant Alternative Bar Magnets

NdFeB magnets at - (Too strong to be a close approximating to Mylow's magnets.) Gauss Rating: 13,200 Gauss Pulling Force: 50 lbs Magnetization: Through 1/2" thickness

Successful Neodynium 'Cooking' Test - Reduced Strength by 2/3 - Andy Graham writes: "I successfully weakened one of my super-powerful 3" round x 1/4" thick neodynium disc magnets (had to pry apart with a screwdriver!), to about the strength of a ceramic speaker magnet. The Curie point for neos is 300 Celsius (572F), so I pre-heated my oven to 450F (I did'nt want to kill it completely), and 'baked' one for 20 minutes on an upside-down glass lasagna dish. I took it out and let it air cool for another 15min until I could just touch it, then water-cooled it (OK to do if it's only 200 degrees or so.) (May 6, 2009)

STATOR: Horseshoe Magnets

Horseshoe Magnets Used by Mylow
Image:Mylow-stator-magnet-v2-0 bf8.gif

Regarding the stator magnets shown in the April 29-30 videos, Mylow pulled them from a regular electromagnetic motor, then threw the non-functional motor away, so we don't have part numbers. So replicating this thing exactly is going to be a challenge.

He said he got the motor from Science and Surplus in Chicago. He also said that before he threw it away after pulling the magnets out, he noted that it had a stamp on it and if he remembers correctly, it said: 12.5 Volt, 1.6 Amp (probably 2), 25 Watt [he told PMMTester 12 V, 2.1 amps (remember, he's not a scientist)]. ShuShu (sp?), Made in Japan.

The magnets were originally magnetized from the back (arch side) to the front (leg side). He said he used the remagnetizer that loaned him, and changed the pole orientation to N on one leg and S on the other.

Alternative Horseshoe Magnets
Image:HS90-stator-magnet-AllMagnetics bf4.gif - HS90, alnico, with polarity from one leg (N) to the other (S). Ask for Felix and mention promotion code "PES" for a 5% discount.

This is the magnet that Mylow said worked with his bar magnets, but it "wobbled" (he had not yet come up with the two off-set stator arrangement) . Reference: Near end (5min 55sec) of the Mylow's Magnets video:

You can find HS90 equivalents at Newman Tools, Ottawa Canada and at Their online catalog is terrible - you won't find the magnet listed but if you go to your local store and find the magnets section you'll see them.

HS90 is the one in the bottom-right in the following annotated screen shot from Mylow's video.

Image:Mylow-magnet-sets jp70.jpg - magnet very similar to the HS-90. Same material, shape, magnetization - may be same one, actually. It is the third one down the page, part number CU610. This source also lists the price for it.


EUROPEAN SOURCES - MAG811 looks the same and has a similar serial number.

Latest Developments on Version 2.0

Below are some of the developments that lead up to the emergence of version 2.0. Most of the new developments presently surround version 2.0, so to conserve on duplication of information, please refer to OS:MYLOW:Latest.

Latest: Directory:Magnet Motors > There was an error working with the wiki: Code[1] > OS:MYLOW:Videos > NSA Guy Apologizes to Mylow Motor Runs in Reverse - Mylow has posted yet another video showing his motor turning, this time in reverse as he swaps orientation of the stator magnets. Account of NSA agent coming back to his apartment to make amends. (PESN April 30, 2009) (Comment at

OS:MYLOW:Videos > - He methodically pulled the assembly apart and described each part, showing that there is not room for a hidden motor inside the fairly large bearing assembly -- that it is mostly solid aluminum. - turning the other way reversed the stator magnets to see if it tunrs the other way and it runs good the stator assimbly is no more sterty no shakeing and motor seams to run faster.

OS:MYLOW:Correspondence with Mylow > bar manget dimensions, etc. - I've had a couple of calls from Mylow this morning. I'm going to be giving a more full report later today, but for now I wanted to pass on some crucial information for those of you wanting to replication Version 2.0 shown last night.

OS:MYLOW:Videos > - did Mylow upload the wrong take? (April 29, 2009)

OS:MYLOW:Videos > - Mylow produced and posted a video today showing the first steps in constructing the new bar magnet (Radio Shack) motor version and the two stator magnets. (April 28, 2009)

OS:MYLOW:Correspondence with Mylow > Mylow claims two working motors, including self-starter - I presently have two working motors: one hand-start and one self-start. The self-start device is very strong with lots of power -- hard to stop. This one has a rigid assembly and goes 300 rpms with no slow down. (Mylow_Magmo Apr 24, 2009 9:53 am)
