Stanley Meyers Water Car

by Jimboot on May 24, 2012

If you are a tinkerer with engines (I’m not) and have been plying with HHO or the Stanley Meyers patents you maybe interested in this latest video from my mate Russ Gries. He has obtained the original drawings of the water injectors.


I came across this video the other night from Youtube user Gotoluc. He takes a coil with a laminated steel core then applies a charge. As you would expect he gets the sort of result you would see in any solenoid. Then he takes some Neo magnets and uses them with their poles facing and the result is fascinating.

Of course I had to have a go myself as I found it fascinating. In the first vid I run through my setup and an initial test.

In the second vid below I’m levitating a Rodin coil to the height of 225mm or 9 inches. I’m running on 12 watts I’m guessing but have not yet measured amps. I’ll be weighing the coil over the weekend.

So our current federal Government wants to introduce a carbon tax so we can reduce CO2 and thus reduce “global warming” So much of this debate seems to be about what side of politics you’re on. For the record I’m on neither. I like to think my personal principles override that of any politician i [...]

Ooops.  Mark Pesce thinks I smoke crack. If you don’t know Mark he is a very smart bloke. Someone whom I respect and really enjoy hearing what he has to say and following him on Twitter. Doesn’t mean I agree with him on everything though. It all started by me responding to a link he [...]

Ice Age coming? Deleted from NASA

January 18, 2011

I tweeted about this article on the 15/12/2010. It was here on the NASA site but that page is now gone and it is no longer in the Google index. Oddly though it is still being linked to within the NASA site itself here I think NASA need a better CMS if they intend [...]

Twitter subpoenaed, Facebook & Google too?

January 11, 2011

Some at the time said that a Government would never use a filter to block services like those.  Then Wikileaks began the release of 250,000 US diplomatic cables. Wikileaks was basically performing a service that our [...]
