A concise set of plans can be found at

Successful Replications

None yet, that we know of for sure, including the eight some iterations that Mylow has claimed, showing several of those on There was an error working with the wiki: Code[1], several of which involved fish wire for rotation.

Success claimed but not yet confirmed

Should be taken with a grain of salt.

Replication claimed no details - Felix of wrote: "We had a walk in customer yesterday, he said Mylow is not faking, his friend has made it happen with some magnets, but with a different setup. No details were revealed." (Mylow_Magmo May 20, 2009 10:37 am, Mountain)

OS:MYLOW:Replication:Bob from Utah County - 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.

Who knows, might be the first to get it running, outside of Mylow. He certainly has the "non-symmetry" thing down, maybe a little too good. You gotta love it. This guy is worth watching just for the entertainment value.

2nd Replication claim, waiting for more info - "I am surrounded with magnetic motors that never worked -- some that seemed to in the construction process and others that somehow have less resistance to rotation one way and more the other. I have successfully replicated a working Mylow Motor!" (Mylow_Magmo May 24, 2009 6:28 pm, Mountain)

NOT YET - He appears to have gotten prematurely excited, having noted rotation by

placing magnets on a plate and setting it in water in the sink (in place of the rotor & bearing assembly). However, he hasn't yet gotten full rotation nor acceleration beyond one rotation using magnets alone. He thinks he might be there within a few days. (Mylow_Magmo May 24, 2009 10:08 pm Mountain)

Mark Hayton is sourcing magnets and parts

I just bought a 20" x 24" 7 guage (3/16) aluminum plate for $35 on eBay.. that is over half the price I was looking at before for a 1/4" (March 24 12:50 pm)

FYI, check out his Bowman Motor replica

I just bought a bunch of small horseshoe magnets that are 1.25 inches for .99 cents a piece.

I can now buy a stator magnet that is in the right size ratio as this horseshoe.

If these magnets don't work, no biggie, since it wasn't a huge cost.

If anyone finds a good source for the MyLow magnets, I will buy them.. if they aren't 500-1000 dollars..

I calculated from his video it takes about 55 magnets for the ones he uses for a 17" disc..

Stator Magnets Ordered - Should be here before weeks end.

Then I can start to put it all together next weekend.

Reviewing All MyLows Videos and making master build notes and specs - I think I understand all the important aspects of the motor and what needs to be done to make it run now

Confirmation today that I will receive my stator magnets on Thursday. This gives me the chance to start to put this together later this week and over the weekend.


Status: On April 2, 2009 12:06 AM

Been tracking my rotor magnet order via UPS, they said it was put on my porch today, but nothing is there. Unless

it's across the street on my neighbors porch, then I will be very behind on my progress on my replication.. bummer..

Status: On April 2, 2009 12:15 PM

Looks like they might have delivered my magnets across the street, if so, then I may have all my parts be the end of the day today.. setting up to be a fun weekend, starting my replication

Status: On April 2, 2009 10:46 PM

I received both rotor magnets and stator magnets today. So, I can get started this weekend with my replication


Status: On April 9, 2009 11:53 AM

I am finally back from a 4 day business trip and have a 3 day weekend coming up. I plan to try to catch up with

the group of replicators and get my replication as far long as I can this weekend..


Status: On April 13, 2009 02:46 PM

Picked up all the parts for my base to hold the bearing and the aluminum disc. I am going to cut my aluminum rotor this week and then mount it to my base. Then I can get the aluminum channel to put together the stator bridge.. I hope someone gets their replication working before I need to start gluing magnets onto the disc. I would like to use the magnets and spacing of a working replication. I don't mind being the 3rd or 4rd successful replication.


Status: On April 23, 2009 11:21 PM

All the parts are sitting in the corner of my den. With the latest news of MyLow, I am not in any hurry to be the first to try to replicate his motor design. I think until someone verifies the design and can provide a absolute list of specs and parts sources, I will just keep monitoring other replicators progress for now.


Status: On April 27, 2009 12:36 AM

Just got everything set up to cut my aluminum plate to a round disc. With the base finished, I could have my disc mounted to my base before the week is over. Still in no hurry to glue any magnets yet, since I am waiting for a final decision on what magnets MyLow got working that are easy to buy from a known source


Status: On May 8, 2009 12:17 AM

Finally! I finished cutting my 18 inch aluminum disc. I still have to trim it so that it is as round as possible to avoid wobble. But this was a big deal for me since I have all the parts (other than magnets) to finish the replication. At this point I will get the disc perfectly round and then assemble the unit, get it spinning on its bearing and then wait for MyLow to get a working unit using the stator and rotot magnets that Sterling sent him. That will be the point in which I can truely make a replication using magnets from the same source as MyLow - Starting to get interesting!!! But, I still will not mess around with my device until I have the same magnets and spacing as MyLow has proven works..


Status: On May 9, 2009 2:45 AM

I received my magnets today from the source listed in the 2.0 plans. These are the ones that Sterling sent to mylow for him to build a motor from since they are readily available. I now have everything I need to finish up the replication. I am going to build everything this weekend and then wait to put the magnets both stator and rotor on once I here that MyLow has made a working motor using these magnets and what the spacing is for them. I am trying to keep my replication as identical as possible to MyLows

Mylow Magnetic Motor Replication by EOM Video # 1 - Hello everyone, this is my first video as I log my attempt to replicate Mylow's magnetic motor. My sincere thanks to Mylow for his courage and commitment to what many people would consider to be the impossible dream. Mylow, I have learnt more from you than just how to possibly build an all magnetic motor, I have learnt the meaning of faith. (YouTube May 15, 2009)

TM Continuos Magnetic Drive Theory - ...Magnets do not store “energy” i.e. they are not a battery or a source of free “energy” like a bore is a source of water. The ability to use a magnet to do “work” is the ability to harness the “force” of the magnet. Because of the way the force of a magnet is exploited, it is believed to be “energy” but it simply isn’t.... (Mylow_Magmo May 10, 2009 12:03 am Mountain)

Mylows magnet motor is the real thing guys. If any mag motor

is gonna work, this will. I tried it on a plastic disk with

some bar magnets taped to it and put a horse shoe magnet

inside. It started rotating on its own magnetic field. Free

energy is out there. We just have to harness it. Thanks.

i've been just expermenting lately on the mag motor by mylow,i tryed

using a 13" alumimun disk with the ball bearing hub like mylows, i don't have

yet enough magnets to go around the whole parimeter of the disk, but i tryed

using small ceramic ferrite magnets 1"x 3/4 x 1/2 thick with all north poles

facing in around the inside parimeter like he did, i only have at this time 8 of

this magnets,but anyway! i spaced and taped them to the disk and held a small

horseshoe magnet inside, and i did get half rotation of the disk and good take

off,i very much believe this motor will work, i will keep trying ferrite mags,

because they will hold they're magnetism better and also they are less costly.

will keep everyone posted on my findings. thanks

My replication of the Howard Johnson-Mylow Magnetic motor - Work in progress of the Mylow replication of the Howard Johnson motor using standard radio shack magnets. Have not achieved a full revolution yet but this is my first model. (YouTube March 23, 2009)

Shows partial revolution. Does not get past "sticky point". Varies from Mylow's design in several key ways.

Second video of the Mylow motor concept - Second video showing stator magnet moving past the magnetic gate. (YouTube March 24, 2009)

Doesn't take into consideration the energy it takes to push the rotor into the field at the opening. Mylow's one-set of magnets, earlier video, showed this same effect.



Quick Mockup by Eltimple 1 (not self-running)

Quick Mockup by Eltimple 2 (not self-running)

notable differences:

Rotor and stator are reversed (vid1)

No 'U' or Horseshoe magnets used

Magnets cover half of the device (vid1)

Plastic rotor as opposed to Aluminum



hj "proof of concept" II - Have tried Mylow's last WORKING set up.

The same "sticky" spots reducing momentum of inertia and do not allow to get to another track.

Maybe with "right" magnets it will do, but so far we have to try with what we have. (YouTube May 01, 2009)

Mike Schuckel - Mar 24, 2009 5:57 am

I built my device using a large 1/8” X 16” inch piece of PC board with copper plating on both sides. Thus far I have been unable to get the device to show results.

I have used cobalt magnets with magnet steel to form magnetic assemblies with the same shape and pole orientations as shown in Mylow’s magnets.

So far no resultsL I will also try to get ceramic magnets and verify that it isn’t related to the higher gauss levels.

Either way I will keep this rotor assembly for future use. Once we better understand what works and doesn’t work with this technology. It may be of use again.
