How To Build Your Own Generator that generates electricity free

“Although originally suggested by Nikola Tesla in 1905, only a few permanent magnet motors-generators have been designed, that is, magnet motors where the power comes from the magnets, not an external, exaustable supply of electricity.”

“Engineers of Hitachi Magnetics Corp. of California have stated that a motor-generator run solely by magnets is feasible and logical but the politics of the matter make it impossible for them to pursue developing a magnet motor or any device that would compete with the energy cartels.”

“Electric power is everywhere present in unlimited quantities and can drive the world’s machinery without the need for coal, oil, or gas.”
- Nikola Tesla

Today scientists say the universe is 60% “Radient/Dark” energy. (see our pages on “Tesla, Radiant Energy,1,2,3″)


Writing on June 10th, 1902 to his friend Robert U. Johnson, editor of Century Magazine, Tesla included a clipping from the previous day’s New York Herald about Clemente Figueras, a woods and forest engineer in Las Palmas, capital of the Canary Islands, who had invented a device for generating electricity without burning [carbon/fossil-based] fuel.

What became of Figueras and his fuel-less generator is not known, but this announcement in the paper prompted Tesla, in his letter to Johnson, to claim he had already developed such a device and had revealed the underlying physical laws.

Other U.S. patents have been filed – see Ammann, Hendershot, Hubbard, and others, however, only Tesla understood the Physics involved.

“As promised, here’s my “simplified diy free energy generator” video. Select “HD 1080p” to view all the details of this machine in highest quality. . . . This is the raw video footage (only inserted some titles). I drove 38 miles to this remote location, it’s a nice place to sit, eat and relax. . . . It’s easy to build yourself, although it took me 3 tries to get this one working. Please give me feedback if you improve it, so I can create a better version. It’s base is a strong neodymium magnet and a self wound coil. The magnet was salvaged from an old harddisk – these are very strong and easy to find! I tried round earth magnets (18mm Ø and 2mm thick) from eBay but they don’t seem to work. Maybe the shape to create the magnetic field isn’t right? I think it’s not a perpetuum mobile, the power has to come frome an external source.
Maybe zero point? Voltage is stable, even under load, that’s promising!”

Concrete proof that relativity can be violated can be found in George Gamow’s watershed book Thirty Years That Shook Physics. Gamow, one of the founding fathers of quantum physics, tells us that in the mid-1920′s, Goudsmit and Uhlenbeck discovered not only that electrons were orthorotating, but also that they were spinning at 1.37 times the speed of light. Gamow makes it clear that this discovery did not violate anything in quantum physics, what it violated was Einstein’s principle that nothing could travel faster than the speed of light.

No physicist talks about this anymore. What this means is that the entire evolution of 20th and nascent 21st century physics is evolving ignoring this key Goudsmit and Uhlenbeck finding. The ramifications suggest that elementary particles, by their nature, interface dimensions. Because they are spinning faster than the speed of light, the idea is that they are drawing this energy from the ether, a pre-physical realm, and converting the energy into material form.

C. Earl Ammann:
The young inventor, C. Earl Ammann, today, Monday, August 8, 1921, demonstrated his invention by attaching it to an old automobile and running it about the city.

Lester Hendershot
In 1960, Lester Hendershot’s device (now called a ‘magnatronic generator’) was researched by the U.S. Navy’s Office of Naval Research. The generator was reported to have lit a 100-watt lamp by ‘induced radio frequency energy.’ The project ended when Hendershot committed suicide.

Alfred Hubbard:

In 1920, at the age of 19, Alfred Hubbard built a coil and motor that ran his boat 10 knots an hour on Portage Bay in Seattle. He called this ‘fuelless’ unit an ‘atmospheric power generator.’ Hubbard claimed it could operate for years; drive a large car; light an office building; and fly a plane around the world nonstop. Little is known about the Hubbard Coil. He was forced into obscurity because of what his motor would do to the present industries. “Since Alfred Hubbard worked with Tesla for a short period, it seems likely that his transformer is based on [information from] Tesla.”

T. Henry Moray

A Doctor of Electrical Engineering, T. Henry Moray wrote the book ‘The Sea of Energy in Which the Earth Floats’ in 1960. It contains results of a 50 year study with another type of ‘atmospheric energy collector.’ During FDR’s reign, Moray became the chief engineer of the western branch of the Rural Electrification Agency. He built a device that weighed 55 pounds and produced up to 50,000 watts. An ignorant co-worker was so enraged by the strange principles Moray tested, that he destroyed the machine. By today’s standards, the loss would be over a million dollars. Moray wrote that ‘frequencies maybe developed which will balance the force of gravity to a point of neutralization.’
Moray: ‘It was during the Christmas holidays of 1911 that I began to realize the fact that the energy I was working with was not of a static nature but of an oscillating nature, and that the energy was not coming out of the Earth but that it rather was coming in to the Earth from some outside source.’

Ed Gray
Ed Gray magnet motor
Edwin Gray Sr., 48, has fashioned working devices that could:
Power every auto, train, truck, boat and plane that moves in this land — perpetually.
Warm, cool and service every American home — without erecting a single transmission line.
Feed limitless energy into the nation’s mighty industrial system — forever.
And do it all without creating a single iota of pollution.
“He flicked a switch and the tiny battery sent a charge into the capacitors. He then plugged in six 15-watt electric bulbs on individual cords — and a 110-volt portable television set and two radios. The bulbs burned brightly, the television played, and both radios blared — and yet, the small battery was not discharging.”

using an iron bar for a magnetic shield

Permanent magnets on both sides of an iron shield are attracted to the shield and only weakly to each other at close proximity to the shield.

to picture this with something smooth around the upper gears to extend them out a little more and to mount the magnets on them, might work.

The simplest, cheapest, ideas are the best.


Radio Shack sells 1″ and 1.5″ bar magnets. However, many bar magnets are a lot cheaper on the web. Do a google search.

you may find a pkg of 50 “magnetic buttons” at Walmart for about $6.

Take a wheel off an old toy, an old roller skate, … or find a hardware store which sells wheels (caster or small fly-wheels?) or a place which sells parts (wheels) for R.C. cars, and buy a couple.

Hyep !! i am very happy to finally get the acceleration under load that we spoke of in different thread at OU or EF or heretical builders etc.
This one is based on Thane Heinz basic system and inspired by Overunityguide video.

I got a PVC drum of 12.5 cm diameter on which i glued 16 neo mag ( rectangle magnet 20/ 10 / 2 mm , N42 ) evenly and alternating N/S.

The coil is bifilar (0.3 mm copper wire ) and i don’t know the number of turns but as shown on the bolt core it is 37.5 ohms DC resistance (not so high impedance ) and 139 mH inductance.
The terminals of the bificoil are connected in serie.

At the beginning the voltage is at 11 volt on the prime mover, to get more than the threshold speed which is around 2000 rpm.

The core is a 12 mm diameter bolt of standard steel. (8.8 quality )

I am very estonished of the strong acceleration when i shortcut the coil above the threshold.
But i am also estonished that under the threshold where i do not get the acceleration but where i get deceleration with the LED load, i can get an acceleration when i shortcut the coil. ??
So it seems that the LOAD is determining the level of the threshold.

Very interesting indeed,

The GEGENE : a Great Efficiency GENErator with a Tesla bifilar coil…
created on December 28, 2012 – JLN Labs – last update february 1, 2013

Input power – 1000 watts
Output power – 2800 watts.

Here is an interesting experiment about a high power electrical generator which is able to produce some KW. It uses the electronic controller of an induction cooker which can be purchased in any store. The main specification of the GEGENE (Great Efficiency GENErator) is that it uses a BIFILAR PANCAKE COIL patented by Nikolas TESLA in 1894 in the patent # 512,340.

from www.jnaudin.free.fr/gegene/gegene11en.htm

In 1893, Tesla applied for a patent on an electrical coil that is the most likely candidate for a non-mechanical successor of his energy extractor. This is his “Coil for Electro-magnets,” patent #512,340. It is a curious design, unlike an ordinary coil made by turning wire on a tube form, this one uses two wires laid next to each other on a form but with the end of the first one connected to the beginning of the second one.
In the patent Tesla explains that this double coil will store many times the energy of a conventional coil.

Nikola Tesla US patent # 512,340


No. 512,340. Patented Jen. 9,1894.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 512,340, dated January 9, 1894. Application filed July 7.1893. Serial No. 479,804.

Be it known that I, NIKOLA TESLA, a citizen of the United States, residing at New York, in the county and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful improvements in Coils for Electro-Magnets and other Apparatus, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the drawings accompanying and forming a part of the same.

In electric apparatus or systems in which alternating currents are employed the self induction of the coils or conductors may, and, in fact, in many cases does operate disadvantageously by giving rise to false currents which often reduce what is known as the commercial efficiency of the apparatus composing the system or operate detrimentally in other respects. The effects of self-induction, above referred to, are known to be neutralized by proportioning to a proper degree the capacity of the circuit with relation to the self-induction and frequency of the currents. This has been accomplished here-to-fore by the use of condensers constructed and applied as separate instruments.

My present invention has for its object to avoid the employment of condensers which are expensive, cumbersome and difficult to maintain in perfect condition, and to so construct the coils themselves as to accomplish the same ultimate object.

In order to attain my object and, to properly increase the capacity of any given coil, I wind it in such way as to secure a greater difference of potential between its adjacent turns or convolutions, and since the energy stored in the coil-considering the latter as a condenser, is proportionate to the square of the potential difference between its adjacent convolutions, it is evident that I may in this way secure by a proper disposition of these convolutions a greatly increased capacity for a given increase in potential difference between the turns.

Figure l is a diagram of a coil wound in the ordinary manner. Fig. 2 is a diagram of a winding designed to secure the objects of my invention.

Let A, Fig. 1, designate any given coil the spires or convolutions of which are wound upon and insulated from each other. Let it be assumed that the terminals of this coil show a potential difference of one hundred volts, and that there are one thousand convolutions; their considering any two contiguous points on adjacent convolutions let it be assumed that there will exist between them a potential difference of one-tenth of a volt. If now, as shown in Fig. 2, a conductor B be wound parallel with the conductor A and insulated from it, and the end of A be connected with the starting point of B, the aggregate length of the two conductors being such that the assumed number of convolutions or turns is the same, viz., one thousand, then the potential difference between any two adjacent points in A and B will be fifty volts, and as the capacity effect is proportionate to the square of this difference. The energy stored in the coil as a whole – will now be two hundred and fifty thousand times as great Following out this principle, I may wind any given coil either in Whole or in part, not only in the specific manner herein illustrated, but a1so in a great variety of ways, well known in the art, so as to secure between adjacent convolutions such potential difference as will give the proper capacity to neutralize the self-induction for any given current that may be employed. Capacity secured in this particular way possesses an additional advantage in that it is evenly distributed, a consideration of the greatest importance in many cases, and the results, both as to efficiency and economy, so are the more readily and easily obtained as the size of the coils, the potential difference,

6r frequency of t’ne currents are increased.

Coils composed of independent strands or l conductors wound side byside and connected 25l in series’ are not in themselves new, and I do not regard a more detailed description ofthe same as necessary. l3nt heretofore, so far as I am aware, the objects in view have been essentially diterent from mine, and the results which I obtain even if an incident to such 3o forms of winding have not been appreciated or taken advantage of.

In carrying out my invention it is to be observed that certain facts are well understood by those skilled in the art, viz: the relations of capacity, self-induction, and the frequency and potential difference of the current. What capacity, therefore, in any given case it is desirable to obtain and what special winding will secure it, are readily determinable from the other factors which are known.

What I claim as my invention isn’t. A coil for electric apparatus the adjacent convolutions of which form parts of the circuit between which there exists a potential difference sufficient to secure in the coil a capacity capable of neutralizing its self-induction, as herein before described.

2. A coil composed of contiguous or adjacent insulated conductors electrically connected in series and having a potential difference of such value as to give to the coil as a whole, a capacity sufficient to neutralize its self-induction, as set forth.





The Wang Shum Ho (aka Wang Shen He) prototype 5kW electricity generator is reportedly powered by permanent magnets and claimed to be close to production. It has claimed to be close to production for the last 6 years. The team is seeking a marketing partner and offers a working prototype for viewing by financial backers.

“The inventor has had the working prototype since 1992. He has had visitors from the top universities in the USA including Harvard, MIT and Stanford, trying to explain the source of energy without any success.



Howard Johnson created one. He has arranged a set of permanent magnets on the rotor and a corresponding set – with different spacing – on the stator. One simply has to move the stator into position and rotation of the rotor begins immediately.

His invention was vandalized; his work suppressed:
“He’s had numerous additional setbacks over the years after his working unit was vandalized by thieves that broke into Howard’s shop and stole only the magnets off that model, leaving many $thousands worth of other material nearby untouched.”

Perendev magnet motor inventor arrested for embezzlement

After declaring bankruptcy in Germany, Mike Brady rented a house at Lake Zurich in Switzerland and leased a fleet of Maseratis and several Range Rovers. He was arrested on March 29th 2010 and extradited to Germany where 61 customers wanted their money back ($1 million Euros+) for non-delivered 100 and 300-kw electromagnetic motors.

[There were] 61 German customers, many of whom paid half down on the purchase price of 20,000 to 40,000 Euros for a generator. The total amount embezzled is estimated to be 1 million Euros — and that is just from German customers. He was pre-selling these worldwide.

It turns out that he probably pirated the technology from a South American inventor who patented a nearly identical concept long before, in 1990 (of which I have a copy). That inventor remembers getting frequent calls from a guy in Johannesburg asking in-depth questions about how the magnet motor worked. That inventor went on to other things, tiring of the continued skepticism about it, and discouraged by the degaussing of the expensive ceramic magnets that he used in his design. (The contact in S. America requested not to be identified or contacted.)

In addition to the magnetic and electromagnetic motors, Brady also claimed to have a 60 kW nitrogen motor for non-polluting power for motor boats. One person reported: “His nitrogen motor works, but the consumption of nitrogen is excessively high, and the performance output is not good — not suited for any motor vehicle.” He was also working on a hydroxy system, which had some of the same elements as above: claim of unprecedented output from his special electrolysis, but without substantiation. For a few years, he was selling a magnetic ring the customer was to wear to boost health.


the Ecklin Generators

John W. Ecklin was granted US Patent Number 3,879,622 on 29th March 1974. The patent is for a magnet/electric motor generator which produces an output greater than the input necessary to run it. There are two styles of operation. The main illustration for the first is: [an inferior variation, it seems]

Here, the idea is to use a small low-power motor to rotate a magnetic shield to mask the pull of two magnets. This causes a fluctuating magnet field which is used to rotate a generator drive.

In the diagram above, the motor at point “A” rotates the shaft and shielding strips at point “B”. These rectangular mu-metal strips form a very conductive path for the magnetic lines of force when they are lined up with the ends of the magnets and they effectively shut off the magnet pull in the area of point “C”. At point “C”, the spring-loaded traveller is pulled to the left when the right-hand magnet is shielded and the left hand magnet is not shielded. When the motor shaft rotates further, the traveller is pulled to the right when the left-hand magnet is shielded and the right hand magnet is not shielded. This oscillation is passed by mechanical linkage to point “D” where it is used to rotate a shaft used to power a generator.

As the effort needed to rotate the magnetic shield is relatively low, it is claimed that the output exceeds the input and so can be used to power the motor which rotates the magnetic shield.

The second method for exploiting the idea is shown in the patent as:

Here, the same shielding idea is utilised to produce a reciprocating movement which is then converted to two rotary motions to drive two generators. The pair of magnets “A” are placed in a housing and pressed towards each other by two springs. When the springs are fully extended, they are just clear of the magnetic shield “B”. When a small electric motor (not shown in the diagram) moves the magnetic shield out of the way, the two magnets are strongly repelled from each other as their North poles are close together. This compresses the springs and through the linkages at “C” they turn two shafts to generate output power.

the Ecklin-Brown Generator

A modification of this idea is the Ecklin-Brown Generator. In this arrangement, the movable magnetic shielding arrangement provides a direct electrical output rather than a mechanical movement:

Here, the same motor and rotating magnetic shield arrange- ment is used, but the magnetic lines of force are blocked from flowing through a central I-piece. This I-piece is made of laminated iron slivers and has a pickup coil or coils wound around it.

The device operates as follows:

In the position shown on the left, the magnetic lines of force flow downwards through the pickup coils. When the motor shaft has rotated a further ninety degrees, the situation on the right occurs and there, the magnetic lines of force flow upwards through the pickup coils. This is shown by the blue arrows in the diagram. This reversal of magnetic flux takes place four times for every rotation of the motor shaft.

While the Ecklin-Brown design assumes that an electric motor is used to rotate the mu-metal shield, there does not seem to be any reason why the rotation should not be done with a permanent magnet motor.


Some basic observations concerning magnets

  1. Two magnets repel further than they attract because of friction and inertia forces, however, Using magnets to repel tends to weaken them as it causes more misalignment of the domains.
  2. Most of our energy comes directly or indirectly from electromagnetic energy of the sun, e.g. photosynthesis and watercycle of ocean to water vapor to rain or snow to ocean.
  3. Magnetic energy “travels” between poles at the speed of light.
  4. Permanent magnets on both sides of an iron shield are attracted to the shield and only weakly to each other at close proximity to the shield.
  5. Permanent magnets are ferrous metals. The attraction is an inverse square force.
  6. Magnetic energy can be shielded.
  7. The sliding or perpendicular force of a keeper is much less than the force in the direction of the field to remove the keeper.
  8. Most of the magnetic energy is concentrated at the poles of the magnet.
  9. A permanent magnet loses little strength unless dropped or heated. Heating misaligns the magnetic elements within the magnet.
  10. If a weight lifted by a permanet magnet is slowly increased, the lifting power of the magnet can be increased until all the magnetic domains in the magnet are aligned in the same direction. This becomes the limit.


“It is absolutely essential to know that the universe is governed by perpetual motion, from the atom to the galaxy for “eternity past” and for “eternity future”, producing its own movements independently without interruption.”

    That’s awesome. was surprised to look at these inventions. we have planned to use the magnetic motor as a power source in our project in Electrical Department of Punjab University Pakistan. Could you please send us any special care regarding this field??

    What we have is here. As we come across more information we will present it on this web site – most likely, this page. If you have experimental results to share with us, please do so as you progress.
    example: there is new information on a magnet motor by Kohei Minato.
    Also, for additional information on magnet motors and a few other energy transforming devices see Patrick Kelly’s page on “free” energy devices (mentioned above)
    PS the information above Kohei Minato and below about Ecklin & Ecklin-Brown has been added since this comment.

    Yes, you can make one. It is nothing special … also see new dual wheel magnet motor diagram with a magnetic shield above (near the top) -ed

  5. Rob on December 5, 2010 at 7:54 pm

    This topic is the way of the future for sure; producing power with out the bad emissions and pollution. Can’t wait till we all got spaceships that fly for us and robots that work for us and everything’s free. Sounds stupid now but it will have to be like that soon. This world is progressing rapidly. Hopefully we get rid of all the weapons before we destroy each other.

    I am the inventor of the Magnetic Energy Cone. This technology is going to be a reality in the very short future. Think about it, does wind turn a mill? Can water turn a wheel? Why not use the force of a magnet to make something move? This is not as hard as you think. Magnetic force can be used to create movement. I have achieved movement. Perfecting that to commercial applications will not take that long.

    Many have demonstrated free-energy magnet motors on youtube. They show exactly how they are built.
    Good luck.
