If you lived on a desert island and were never exposed to modern technology,
what might you think the first time you witnessed such marvels as cordless phone
communications, ground and air travel, running water, and so many other
The claim to cars running on energy harnessed and directed by a Joe cell are
equally astonishing to one well versed in the latest and greatest technologies
of our day. To just hear about it is nearly too much to believe if you believe
in the limitations that apply to a fuel-based energy paradigm.
Imagine a device about five inches in diameter by ten inches long, with a tube
running from it to a bolt on your engine. Your engine is running, but your fuel
line is disconnected. Not only does the motor run, but it has far more power
than it did when running on gasoline or diesel. And somehow the car responds to
the accelerator, even though the fuel line is disconnected. That and other
seemingly cognitive attributes of a Joe cell have spurred people to call it a
Weird; very weird -- and exciting.
This device, which makes fueling up obsolete, can be built for less than $100 in
According to some proponents, electricity is what is being conveyed here. Others
have experimented with the vapour. And others refer to it as a function of
frequencies. Others invoke the living energy called Orgone, discovered and named
by Wilhelm Reich in the mid-twentieth century.
The extreme shift of thinking required drives some people to the
head-in-the-sand, preserve-my-comfortable-conformity statement: "If it
sounds too good to be true, then it probably is."
Yet the number of people claiming to have achieved success with this phenomenon
is growing. And the instructions of how to do so are becoming more clear,
spawning yet more success.
Add to this the reports of individuals who are threatened with death or some
harm coming to a loved one if they don't stop, such as happened to Bill Williams
on April 11, 2006. In the past, that has worked by isolating the victim. In
today's globally-warmed climate of widespread ecological concern, such
suppression attempts now seem to fuel the interest and involvement of others to
replicate the phenomenon and report their success.
Those pioneers, with a strong preponderance residing in Australia, who have
worked for years on this technology, deserve a lot of credit for their
inventiveness to try various things, as well as their tenacity to not give up.
Perhaps these inventors from the land down under gravitate to this
phenomenon because it seems so up-side-down from standard physics. Having
"Joe" in their midst probably contributes as well, though the
technology is actually at least a couple of centuryies old and arrived in
Australia by way of Graham Coe from New Zealand.
Sir William Groves patented the device in 1830. In 1926, Walter
Russell showed in his periodic tables the abnormal energies associated with
all matter. Many of his drawings illustrated this energy at work.
A number of websites and discussion groups are springing up to help assure the
continuance and expansion of the technology worldwide. We have created a project
page at PESWiki for this purpose, which you can find by going to http://JoeCellHydra.com.
Guidelines for Successful Operation
Peter Stevens, an Australian, has spent about fourteen years pursuing this
technology. He installed a Joe cell on his Ford Econovan, with a modified V6 GMH
engine. He helped Bill Williams (U.S.) get his truck running on a Joe Cell.
Stevens is more than happy to help anyone figure out how to make their Joe cell
work, and is glad to share what he knows with the world via the propagation made
possible by the Internet.
The Joe Cell basically consists of several equally-spaced, concentric stainless
steel cylinders, with water between them. Stevens recommends 3-1-6L,
non-magnetic stainless steel. The number of cylinders and particular diameter
and length of the cylinders do not seem to be crucial, though the ratios and
proportionate spacing may be.
According to Stevens, the idea is to form a polarity on each cylinder, so that
they are positive on the outside and negative on the inside at the lowest point.
Some cells that leak or lose charge can be remedied and be maintained by a
1.5-volt battery, which is not drained in the process. It just serves as a
potential (polarity) reference. Adding to the apparent quirkiness of the
technology, Stevens has noted that this booster charge seems to be dependent on
lunar cycles, and is not necessary during some moon phases. However, the
comeback is that this is not quirkiness, but further evidence for the Electric
Cosmos concept, in which all planets, moons, comets and stars are recognized as
The connections of cylinders and caps and tubing generally need to be
electrically insulated. However, standard insulating materials often don't work
as they do with standard electrical processes but not with high-tension lead
current. Stevens recommends natural rubber, without the colourings. That
and other additives seem to short out or bleed the frequencies. This is an
additional suggestion of a living energy at work; it is primarily life forms
that are sensitive to additives in this way. Ordinary electricity is a
non-living force indifferent to such subtleties.
The central cylinder acts as the cathode tube. There is no positive lead coming
from the cell. The cell does require charging to begin with for about 3-10
minutes. Stevens says that the central cathode is electrified up from the bottom
insulated and the tube is in direct contact to the outside surface of the tube
and not connected as some describe with a bolt wedged into the frequencies of
energy from the cathode require negative to be on the outside. [Q
/ A] [more]
He says a little machining needs to be done on the cathode tube, making a
threaded bolt hub that is welded to the tube via an inert gas shield welder, or
tig. The hub should also have a couple of holes in the base to allow water to
flow within the tube. The hub can then be sealed at the base insulating
material. Alternatively, washers can be made from a material like Teflon knife
cutting boards. This Ύ-inch (20 mm) clearing is also a spark gap to the body of
The jointing compound, marine-grade Sikaflex 291 should be used to make a
water-tight seal between the cell and the mounting location. The hub is then
able to support all the neutral tubes and allow for bolting to the cars
engine compartment. Dont use silicon to seal. It breaks down and causes a
mess that is difficult to clean up (requires a carbi cleaner).
The charge from the inside cell is conveyed from the Joe cell to the engine via
a 1/2 inch (12mm) diameter aluminium tubing. The tubing is connected to the
outside of the cell. It has positive potential and needs to be clear of any
objects That tubing needs to stay clear by at least four inches from things such
as the radiator hoses, fuel lines, electrical lines, and AC lines. The other end
of that tube line can be attached to pretty much any blind or blank bolt on the
engine. It needs to be insulated with a ½ to Ύ-inch gap using plastic tubing
so as to keep the positively-charged cell from shorting out.
If you can see the head of a bolt on top of the engine use it, so long as the
aluminium line stays clear of the existing conducting lines in the engine
compartment as just mentioned. There needs to be about a 3/4-inch gap between
the line and the engine block for a "spark gap." The line can be
connected to the bolt holding the air cleaner on the carburetor.
The line can be connected under the carburetor to the PCV if you wish to use
vacuum pressure. In the process of learning about the Joe cell, Stevens said
this is how they thought they needed to start the cell producing. It
results in a vary erratic response generally, and is difficult to tune. It
is critical to have the timing 68-73 degrees advanced with this configuration. [Q/A]
One of the videos
in circulation shows an engine running as Joe is moving the high-tension lead
from a spark plug along the engine with about a 1/2-inch gap. There is an arcing
visible from the line to the engine block -- even into the radiator hose, air
conditioning, fuel lines, and the Battery posts -- to show that the spark is a
different frequency. This spark will jump into most things.
The fuel line to the car does not need to be disconnected, though it does need
to be shut off. Stevens says that if the fuel line is not disconnected, then the
frequency disrupts the efficient running of the engine. He also recommends
that an electric solenoid not be used in the fuel line, due to frequencies that
it generates that conflict with the process.
Also, the timing on the engine needs to be advanced quite a bit. "On the
crank about 80 degrees, says Stevens. Some run at 70.
Then comes the final step of operation.
"To begin using the Cell it is best to arc off all the components
negative to positive -- first at assembly then once together. Fill to the
level of the tubes. Always put negative connection on the Joe Cell first. Then
arc with positive 12 volts DC for three to ten minutes on the outside of the
Joe cell. The engine should respond and start to accept the energy. Some
gasket material absorbs the energy, but arcing the crank with a brush action
to flash positive then negative will often overcome the barriers. Make sure
you have a long screwdriver and hands clear, with an assistant rotating the
motor on the start coil lead, disconnected, then all clear. Reconnect leads
and happy driving."
Stevens says the Joe Cell could be made as small as a 35mm film container, which
could run a 30cc brush cutter. He says a two-inch unit will run an ultra-light
