what voltages do you want to experiment with? Say the answer is 120VAC.
Your caps should be able to handle that with some margin. These are AC
capacitors here, like found in an air conditioning unit. Not electrolytic
What voltage capacitors are used?
Another thing counter-intuitive is that it is not VOLTAGE that we want here
but CURRENT. By stepping down, we go from something higher in voltage to
something higher in current on the other side. It is high current that
produce larger magnetic fields. Put oscillating magnetic fields near
STATIONARY coils, and you can generate power. The Coils, NOR the MAGNETs
need to move. Only the field needs to move.
I've come to realize, in messing around with this stuff, that the exact
components are not crucial. Realize we are making a device that has a
buzzer/relay mechanical pulsing. This is lower frequency -- say 20 Hertz
upwards to 150 Hertz. If you were to use really LARGE capacitors, that
won't work. You need capacitors that charge up with a time constant
compatible with these SLOW pulses. Read up on capacitive and inductive time
constants -- and resonance.
Thanks for this reply, i've been searching for the exact transformer
workable for this.
Thank you Morpher44, i am in Europe, so i guess it would be a 220VAC/48VAC.
But how much load? 2A, 3A, 4A, how much output will i have? With a 2A i
would have a output of 220VAC x 2A = 440 W right? how much? Thank you for
Its just a 120VAC/24VAC transformer, 5 to 1 ratio. Nothing special. You
need 2 of them.
Greetings, here you have some clues were to find the transformer. I already
have all the pieces but i am missing the transformer? Can you tell me a
website to order! Thank you
who is Hendershot? Gary ??
if 110 VAC is on one side, then 110/5 = 22 on other side. If 220 VAC is on
one side, then 220/5 = 44VAC on the other side.
how much power are we talking?
Ok... but someone also shared this info with me and I think it is SILLY to
buy this when you can get it for free by searching the web for Hendershot
material. The price you are paying, I guess, is for the nice packaging and
paying someone to have researched and found this material for you. For me,
I just use Google Search and can find most of this same info for free.
@lugiss76 Yeah. I use Garage Band. That software is very fun. This
particular song also features a little Theremin I made which uses
photo-resistors and light instead of inductance. It was a simple little
circuit I found on the web. I just plugged its output directly into my
M-AUDIO usb device as if it was a guitar or bass. Very fun.
Go to Google, select "More", then "Even More" and then "Patent search".
Then type in 1770245 .
Looks like a painful coil to wind. :) Reminds me of another guy who wound
coils around vertical poles, but in a grid sort of pattern, and claimed it
could pull in energy.
Yes. Others have pointed me to this information. I have to agree its a hoax
in that there is no real info here. Everything they sell you you can find
for free, and they explain nothing. They have no-one to answer questions or
refund your money. Not cool.
Thanks for the advice about a grid dip meter. Sounds like a useful tool to
have. Absolutely I'm seeing spurious oscillations ... and I intend to
enhance that if I can. The Hendershot hand made capacitor is like an
antenna and picks up all sorts of RF ... and the coils are sensitive right
down to VLF and lower frequencies. This thing has a very wide band response.
are you gonna work on a model for powering a house or a vehicle? ...boat?
... an aircraft? why not go to a flying saucer model?
very interresting !!
Morpher 44 do you now what kind of transformer use de Hendershot generator,
because I don not understand, the list mencion 1:5 and 5:1 110v-220v how
much we have in the secondary of each????
Have you had a look at hendershot generator . com ? They say they have a
guide made by professionals and blueprints, but for some reason it all
seems like a cheap scam.
@3lricofM3lnibon3 Pseudo science for me is a hobby. As for violating laws
of conservation of energy. The Hendershot device, to me, appears to be
picking up and using the earth's magnetic field in some novel way. I've
done a lot of research on this. Hendershot was trying to improve the
induction compass idea and stumbled upon something interesting.
Still watching with great joy... MJH
What is the wrap on the bottom? and how much real energy r u putting out?
enough to power a house or more? I really had no success with electronics
in my day!
Hi Megaohmz. Hendershot's interest in the induction compass is well
documented by various people who wrote about him. The induction compass is
a generator, yes, but requires you to SPIN a coil in the Earth's magnetic
field. Wind, while flying, would enter a pipe and spin a little propeller
to do that. Hendershot started with this device, and figured out another
way to generate power. Its a very interesting mystery.
