Free Energy Chain Drive Gravity Machine Open Source Project Launched
A businessman and inventor, who desires anonymity for the moment, has revealed the design of a chain driven gravity machine that allegedly requires no input power. He claims
it has been proven to work, providing 1.5 kW from 300 kg of weights.

Over the years there have been countless inventors who have claimed to build working gravity machines. These machines are typically claimed to produce free energy, by somehow harnessing the force of gravity to produce work.
Now, an inventor and businessman, who has wished to remain anonymous for the moment, has come forward releasing a design for a chain driven gravity device.
To look at it, immediately gives the impression: "That just might work!"
Cognitively, this one doesn't make sense to most of us. Where does the energy come from? Don't you have to first elevate something in order to harness gravity?
But to look at the above image, you think that this certainly illustrates a way
to do it.
Could this be the open source project we've all been waiting for: something that is simple, affordable, produces practical amounts of power, and is not encumbered by intellectual property
Our associate claims to know of at least three people who built and tested the device to show that it does indeed work; and he added some improvements himself using simulation software. "This system, we have checked it, it 100% works."
The device is not his original idea, and he claims to only be passing it along so people can prove to themselves gravity machines can work.
Although he is working primarily on other systems that he asserts are more advanced, he claims the chain driven gravity device can be used by people to prove to themselves that such systems are possible. Breaking the mental block against such systems is to his advantage so that by the time his more advanced technology is ready to hit the market, people will be more open to it.
In a Skype chat on Tuesday with Sterling, he said that 300 kilograms of combined weights resulted in an output of 1.5 kW of power.
He didn't seem to think that was very impressive compared to the megawatts he's anticipating from his design. I don't know about you, but I think 1.5 kW from 300 kilos of weights would be about the best thing going right now.
In order to allow people to convince themselves that "not all such systems are bogus or scams", he has allowed us at PES Network to post
the above diagram showing the basic concept and operation of the device.
The basic idea of the device seems fairly strait forward. There are two cogs in a vertical arrangement mounted on bearings, so each can spin freely. The top cog has larger spacing than the bottom one of same diameter, and contains extensions, gear teeth, or short arms of some kind. The lower cog contains a greater number of hook-like extensions.
A chain composed of a large number of links (he describes them as being similar to links in a bicycle chain) are connected around the two cogs. When the system is allowed to operate, the difference between the cogs -- apparently due to a gearing effect -- creates an imbalance of chain links on one side. This produces an unbalanced load, so there is more weight on one side than the other. The result of this unbalanced load is alleged to be continuous rotation that can be harnessed to produce "free energy."
Not shown in the above diagram is a set of walls that are used on each side of the ascending and descending chains, to keep them in line and at a given width. There is also a wall that goes around the bottom to help keep the chain from falling off the cogs, which have a small hook on them as well. The rollers connecting the chain links need to be able to rotate to allow movement along the walls.
He describes this system as being super simple and easy to replicate.
He said there are a couple disadvantages to the system. One disadvantage is that it requires a large mass for a relatively low amount of power output (compared to his more advanced systems). Another disadvantage to this system that it is slow, due to depending on the constant force of gravity, unlike centrifugal force which increases as a square of the speed. This creates a speed limitation for the device.
Also, it is important to use very good bearings on this device, because there is a huge radial load on them. Good bearings will make the system last longer, and increase the output.
It is asserted to be simple to create electricity with this device. All you would have to do is attach a generator to one of the spinning cogs. The mechanical power would then be converted into electricity.
One good aspect of this device is that it does not need any input power. You do not need a drive motor to get it going. The force of gravity does all the work. Another advantage I can think of is that no magnets or expensive materials would be needed. If the chain links were made very wide, I'm thinking a large hunk of cheap lead could be installed in them to add weight. There are also many ways this system could be altered, but still use the same principle.
You would regulate the speed by exerting a braking action on the rotation.
Here are a few quotes from the Skype call he had with Sterling.
|"About 300 kilo weight machine will make about one and a half kilowatts power, but it is slow. It is speed of the gravity. And if you look at it, one side the bottom links that it is a smaller cog, and the back side of the chain is like a bearing, like a roller... like on a bicycle chain where the links are is a roll able thing. So there are hooks on the smaller one, and on the back, on the top, is a wider cog. So what happens is it expanded one side, and one side falls. The falling side always folds together and gets heavier, and the lifting side is opened up, is lighter."
If this setup works, it could be a useful tool to prove that free energy is possible, and that gravity machines can indeed work. If gravity machines can be proven to work, then the next stage is to show that centrifugal force based machines can also produce free energy.
We've created a PESWiki feature
page to house this open source project, where we can post diagrams, materials lists, cautions, instructions, replications, data, improvement suggestions, forum links, news links. Remember, PESWiki is publicly editable, and we would appreciate help in maintaining the accuracy, clarity, and timeliness of the pages associated with this project. Due to spam, we had to disable the sign-up function for new users, so just drop us an email if you want to be able to edit the site.
We've also created a forum for those who wish to be involved in this project. Of course we ask that you abide by the usual rules of decorum.
We'll all be anxious to see if this really works, to get videos up on YouTube, to get the world busy on building this for their own homes and for their neighbors, creating jobs, providing hope, and getting out from under the corrupt powers that be.
Once we get verification, we can help prepare a set of clear plans for download for a small fee, to provide another revenue source for the inventor, shared also with PES, and with any affiliates who help disseminate it. PES can use that revenue to help compensate those who help with things like diagrams, parts lists, business tips, etc. And we can use the revenue to help other inventors move forward with their promising exotic free energy devices.
We'll also ask that a small royalty (e.g. 5%) be paid for all commercial ventures that spring from the project, and we'll split that with the inventor as well.
We want to prove to the world not only that exotic free energy is real, but that open sourcing is a great way to get it out to the world quickly, while rewarding the inventor well financially. Not all technologies are simple or cheap enough to open source, but for those that are, we want to demonstrate for the hesitant inventors that they can be rewarded financially better through open sourcing than from trying to break through all the barriers that the traditional method of taking a technology to market entails.

[needs to be geared together]
Sorry, but it won't work
Please see photo [at right]. The left side will push the bottom cog, but the links will build up on the right side and expand on the left side until the two sides are equal weight, so 1/2 revolution or so.

You have to have the top and bottom cogs geared together, e.g. through a chain
on the back side.

- Murilo Luciano has put a lot of effort into it and really does believe in it.

Subject: [chain-grav] Does not work - proof
Hey, I am sorry to tell you this design does not work. Let me prove it to you by using basic physics:
Let's say the height of the motor is 49 meters and one 1 bar with 2 links weight 1 kg (it does not actually matter, this is just for ease of calculation).
Force: F = m * g, where g ~= 9.81;
Work: W = F * d => W = m * 9.81 * d;
Work done - left side:
m = 49 (49 bars);
d = 1 (1 bar is moved over to the right side);
W = 49 * 9.81 * 1 = 480.69;
Work done - right side:
m = 21 (21 bars);
d = 49 /21 (bars extend so 1 bar is moved longer distance);
W = 21 * 9.81 * 49 / 21 = 49 * 9.81 = 480.69;
The work done on both sides is therefore equal and that does not even take friction into
consideration. Or to put it into words: the left side is heavier but only moves a little and the right side is lighter but has to move a longer distance. Or a real life example: it's the same as working out with heavy weights vs. running a short distance (no weight), you would be tired exactly the same in both cases.
So there you have it :(

I agree this won't work, but your math demonstration still is not proof of that. Math cannot
substitute experimentation when a complex mechanical system is under study, as modeling the interactions and centrifugal forces in a mechanism as this is not that simple.
Hemholz did not name his paper "On the conservation of Force" by mistake, and was not plagiarizing Van Meyer. Forces can be conserved and still a system can generate energy "in excess". It only takes an out of the box approach to identify the physical form to do so.
This device is not the way, but is useful to advance.
