# Magnetic Generator Concept

In the first part of these instructions we are going to show you the concept of this magnet motor so you can understand what makes it work, this way it will be easier to build. In the second part we will give you the step by step instructions with measurements of how to build this model in a practical way.

## PART ONE THE CONCEPT

As you can see its easy to figure out how this magnet motor works. One property of magnetic attraction is that it is stronger at the point where the magnets are closer to each other, the closest it is, the stronger it gets, so with a spiral iron plate around a magnet, the magnet will spin towards the closest part of the loop (loop end), the only problem is when the magnet reaches the closest point, its going to stay there and not continue spinning. To solve that problem we dont use 1 spiral iron plate, we use 4, and we place them on top of each other (fig. A) Figure A

Each loop end (B1, 2...), in a different place to each other so that when the magnet is passing through one end it has the pull of the other 3 spirals to get it through the closest point. Figure B

The loop ends should be placed every 90% angle in the circumference so the 4 ends form a cross(fig. C). Figure C

The rotor is pretty simple, formed of 3 long slim magnets (fig. M). Figure M

Each magnet placed at 120 angle from each other in the circumferences edge (fig. R) Figure R .

The magnets should be as long as the 4 spiral plates on top of each other.

Note: the spiral plates should be consistent, from the closest part of the loop to the farthest the distance should be increasing gradually in a steady and equal rate(fig. D).

PART TWO

THE BLUEPRINTS

BLUEPRINTS

The following is one of many practical ways of building this motor concept, instead of using spirals as shown in the idea in the concept section, we will assemble multiple iron plates with holes on the center with the shape of a spiral (fig. A) , put them on top of each other separated by plastic plates (Fig. C) and sandwich them together with a configuration like the one explained above. The materials used to build the motor depend on you , but be sure not to use magnetic metals besides the iron spiral plates so it wont interfere with the magnetic pull. As soon as the motor is set together it should start spinning right away. Also be sure that the spiral plates are firmly placed so they dont move at all.

## Fig C ( Plastic plate )

(Note: the R6 47/64 measurement stands for the radius of the outer part of the plates) You will need to build 12 plastic plates (fig C) with the exact same measurements, you will also build 11 of the spiral plates ( fig A), they will be exactly the same except that each one will have 2 bolt holes in different positions of the circumference in order to align the spiral plates in the configuration needed.

In the figures sp1 through sp11 below you can see how the bolt holes alignment will change in relation to the other. On fig sp1 you can see the bolt hole alignment in relation the our reference point witch is in this case the bigger end of the spiral. The bolt holes are at 7.5 degree angle from the bigger spiral end, then, on all the next figures you can see how the holes will be located in relation to the first sp1 figure configuration. Fig_sp1

Now lets discus the parts needed for the rotor. First, you need the rotor top and bottom, this are the 2 round plastic plates in witch the magnets will fit between. This two plates (fig D, E) will have slits in witch you will fit the magnets ( note: Because of standardized magnet sizes , the measurements of the magnets dont need to be exactly the same but should resemble this one ( Fig H) in shape and should also keep the same height in order to maintain the proportions of the rotor and to work properly). Also the poles of the magnet should be all along the side of the magnet like shown in (fig I). There should be 6 slits for the magnets and they should be based on the magnet size you get and should be placed EXACLY at 60 degree angles from each other like shown in Fig E .

## Fig D (rotor disc)

Fig E

Fig F shows the back side of the same 2 plastic rotor parts in witch you can see an extrude at the center and the four bolt holes at 90 degree angles that go through to the other side of the disc, 2 of this holes should be aligned exactly to 2 of the magnet slits as you can see in fig G Fig F

Fig G

Fig H (magnets)

Fig I

You will need to get 6 magnets with dimensions equal or close to this one and the height should be the same or very close. Next part you will need is a shaft for the rotor, on Fig L. u can see it , it is a long metal rod longer than 11 3/16 with 2 round small discs with 4 bolt holes 90 degrees apart (fig K) the same size as those from the rotor disc holes, the bolt holes from the 2 small discs should be aligned to each other as shown in fig J below. Fig

Fig K

Fig L (shaft)

This Shaft (Fig L)and the two rotor discs (Figs D,E,F,G ) assemble together with the magnets ( Figs H,I) to form the rotor ( Fig ) To assemble it , insert the shaft into the hole at the center of the 2 rotor discs. Insert one on each side of the shaft , each with the magnet slits facing in and the round extrusion facing out (fig M) and put each of the 6 magnets in their corresponding slit. Fig M

In order to hold the rotor together you will use 8 bolts and nuts that fit the holes in the shaft and rotor discs like in fig N , and between the to rotor discs you will hold the magnets in their corresponding slits . Be sure that ALL the magnets have their N poles facing out (Fig P), this is very important. When the rotor is ready it should look like Fig O.

Fig N

Fig P

Now that we have our rotor ready it's time to put the rest of the motor together. To assemble the outer part or the motor all you have to do is put all the 11 iron spiral pates and the 12 plastic plates on top of each other with the bolt holes aligned and in the same position as in the sp1 -sp11 drawings and they should have the following order 1 -plastic plate 2 sp1 3 - plastic plate 4 sp2 5 - plastic plate 6 sp3 7 - plastic plate 8 sp4 9 - plastic plate 10 sp5 11 - plastic plate 12 sp6 13 - plastic plate 14 sp7 15 - plastic plate 16 sp8 17 - plastic plate 18 sp9 19 - plastic plate 20 sp10 21 - plastic plate 21 sp11 22 - plastic plate

## It should look like this Fig Q

Fig R

Now the last 2 parts you will need to build are the bottom and top caps of the motor Fig S. This 2 can be made of plastic or any other NONE metallic material and should have bearings for the shaft to slide into and rotate. These 2 parts will go one on the bottom of the motor and the other one on the top with the rotor inside like in Fig T. Fig S

Fig T

Now all that is left to do is to assemble the motor ,you are going to need 2 NONE MAGNETIC bolts that fit the holes in the plates tightly and should be longer than 10 3/16 and 2 NONE MAGNETIC nuts for those bolts (Fig U).
