Bedini SG "Authorized" Beginner's Handbook Posted -- Not First
Peter Lindemann and Aaron Murakami's latest ebook features John
Bedini's famous "School Girl Motor", named for its simplicity. However,
this is not the first such compilation. Nor is it a clear demonstration of
"free energy", though it does illustrate some very interesting
My replication of the Bedini SG.

I was just going to post a regular news bullet link to this one and let it go,
but as I read through the description,
I realized I needed to weigh in on this one with some comments.
On the one hand, I'm glad to see this new Bedini
SG: The Authorized Beginner's Handbook ebook available from eMedia
Press, by Peter Lindemann and Aaron Murakami.
On the other hand, I don't appreciate the tone of their description which claims
this is the "first complete" set of instructions, and that this is the
"only" and first "authorized" version of these plans.
Back in 2004, following the TeslaTech conference in Salt Lake City, my
mother-in-law, Susan Manning, and myself drove up to Coeur d'Alene, Idaho to meet
with John Bedini and Peter Lindemann, based on Peter's insistence that we should
do so, to see some real, working free energy technology.
Based on Peter's depiction of the Bedini SG technology, the image I had in my
mind was that one input battery could charge several output batteries, and one
of them could be rotated to the front, to keep the system running, with an
excess of output energy. That's why I made the 15-hour drive up there to see
what they had.
I must have misunderstood him, because that is not what the Bedini SG is capable
of doing. But I didn't realize that until much later.
With John's permission, I took careful notes, photos, wrote down part numbers,
suppliers; then when I returned home, I compiled a set of open source plans to
allow others to build this device.
I was the first to replicate it, per these plans, and Susan was the second.
Subsequently, many hundreds of people have replicated the technology from these
I spent nearly three months of my life highly focused on taking data, trying
various things: using different resistances in the circuit to increase/decrease
the frequency of rotation of the wheel and of the solid state resonance; trying
different distances between the wheel and the coil; trying various combinations
and types of batteries; using a battery-capacity measuring device to get a true
reading on the batteries on the input and output side of the circuit.
I learned a lot, and saw some pretty amazing phenomenon. (Data)
In some resistance ranges, for one resistance setting, I saw at least two separate stable speeds possible
for the wheel, sometimes three. At the higher resistances, the rotation was no
longer sustained, but an audible, solid-state buzz could be heard as the
"input" batteries were charging the "output" batteries. That
tone frequency would increase in pitch as the potentiometer was increased. Then
the tone became inaudible, but the solid state resonance continued up quite a
ways. I learned a lot about batteries, about surface charge, about performance
curves of batteries, about normal and unusual performance.
While all of that was interesting, I never did get results I was looking for:
overunity. I could not definitively say any of the results in any of the many
combinations proved that I was extracting free energy from the surroundings
(radiant energy?) somehow. I finally gave it up in frustration and let other,
more qualified researchers, such as Rick Friedrich, pursue the technology and
forums that were created around this project.
As for my relationship with John and Peter at that time, it was quite strained.
I did not like that they were upset with me for making the plans "too
simple." That jolted me when they got on my case for that. I had thought
that simplicity was the entire objective.
John seems to have this attitude that other people should have to work as hard
as he has had to work to get the results he has achieved. And while he comes
across as wanting to share what he knows with the world, he either intentionally
or unintentionally withholds certain key pieces of information, thus introducing
the wild goose chase by the seekers, which seems to satisfy him. If too many
people were able to easily replicate his work, then the mystique would
Another point of tension came when I stumbled onto and reported on the solid
state phenomenon. They did not want people to know about that. It is part of
John's battery rejuvenation technology. I thought it was pretty cool, and while
I could understand why they might want to hold that one close to their chests, I knew
it would only be a matter of time before many other people stumbled onto it like
I had. Their wanting to not talk about it didn't make sense to me. Aren't we all in this for the same reason, after all? That is, free energy for the masses and power to the people!
To this day, I'm not convinced that the Bedini SG is a "free energy"
device. It is a good learning tool, and does get people tinkering and learning
new things and thinking outside the box, which is good. But I don't know of any
useful/practical power generation products that have been produced as a result
of that open source project. Maybe they are inching their way forward like so
many other devices in this fledgling field of free energy, in general.
I do have a lot of admiration for John and Peter and Aaron. But I don't
appreciate their implying that the plans I have posted eight years ago were not
at all "authorized" nor "complete." I hope they will
consider rephrasing that.
Having got that off my chest, I now see the following statement from Peter in a
newsletter he sent out just after I posted the above story:
|...For the first time, a real "do-it-yourself" handbook is being released on how to build a
small model of what is called the "Bedini SG". This is a device that runs from one battery
and charges another battery.
John Bedini has built models that I have personally seen run for months without depleting the batteries, and we are moving toward releasing the entire
method. A complete set of plans with a parts list and recommended suppliers is
Pre-assembled Kit Models are also available that have been tested by independent testers to charge the second battery at least 25% faster than the front battery
runs down. This is the beginning of a "stand alone" battery charging system that you can
learn how to build yourself.
Proceeds from the sale of these manuals will go to support John Bedini's research and
the further release of more advanced information in the near future.
The following should be noted about this announcement:
- The plans as they stand, apparently, are not the complete set that will
accomplish the continual running arrangement that Peter said he personally
witnessed. Note the wording "and we are moving toward
releasing the entire method."
- At best, as is, this system keeps itself running. Nothing is said about
useful energy left over. That's cool science, but not practical for powering
anything in a cost-effective way.
- Maybe, if the progress continues, the system might morph into a way to
charge batteries, using free energy. That would be neat if 1) progress
continues, 2) the price and maintenance requirements are reasonable. You can
power a calculator by running a wire from a tree or big rock to the ground,
but that's not practical.
Sorry to be the skeptic on this one. But given my history with this
technology, perhaps you can understand my burnout on this -- eight years later.
