A history of the Joe cell

Peter Stevens describes from his perspective the role he played in "Joe" getting into the Joe cell.  Alex Schiffer's entry to the scene.  A view of some of the politics of science involved.

This first excerpt is an edited post by Peter Stevens to the JoeCellFreeEnergyDevice forum Mar. 19, 2006.

CASINO, NEW SOUTH WALES, AUSTRALIA -- When I was young my Father owned a business inventing machinery. In Moree, after I was injured with a leg crushed, all the business dried up.

So leaving there I arrived in Casino in 1984 and worked selling farm equipment:  sales and service.

I have invented my own agricultural machinery, grain driers, rock pickers, microwave processor, distillers, and a huge range of earth moving equipment. My background has been President of the Apprioate Community Technology Association looking at solar and renewable energy.  This became Rainbow Power Company in Nimbin.

I was a member of the inventors association Northern Rivers.  We had a range of inventions on display at Expo 88 in Brisbane.  I designed ergonomic furniture know as Ing kneeling chairs; also hydraulic pumps, consulted on design of a pencil case (Greg Jesser), Cliff Parker ceiling tiles; and later even worked with Jack Toyer on his Rainmaker; and with Alan Maslen, doing Aluminiun anodizing in full colour, etc.

So working with strange science [was] easy when I became interested in Yule Brown.  I had met Professor Ron Davis in Sydney, and we had joined up on several ideas. He was the intended Person for the Arid Lands Research Foundation when Dr. Rod Leeson retired.

Thus the saga began.  Before, we duplicated Graham Coe's (a Member of ASTRO Rainbow branch) simple twin tube electrolytic cell under vacuum to enhance running in a vehicle percentage, saving about 70%.  This was set up on his Toyota Celica.  He had a trunk full of different prototypes, and I introduced him to mechanics in our immediate area: Brad Lohman, car enthusiast Kevin Butwell, and Joe Booker.

Graham had got the Water welder of Yule's operating and working well, and we had a meeting of World class alternate energy display at Byron Bay. He liked the fact that when the Press lobed [?] I was welding a brick and steel together and they wanted to talk to me. I directed them to Graham, so he turned up at my place two days later and showed me what he had running on his car.

Joe [of the famed 'Joe' cell] had been my mechanic for a year or so.  Needing a mechanic on call was a requirement to fix tractors etc..  Joe is a backyard mechanic, self taught, and can get most thing running again; so for me he is brilliant. So I rang and got permission to enter our local milk company's stainless steel scrap yard, and sent Joe down to rummage some pieces up to make a few cells. When we got it running on the Friday, I had been talking to Professor Ron Davis, and advised him to come up and see it for himself.  When he arrived, I was still attending to my family commitments, as we had a child with a major disability; I was delayed.

So finally when I got up to Joe's place on Friday night, Ron and Joe where into Religion in a big way. Joe didn't know Ron at that time, so it was pretty strange.

Anyway we duplicated the experiment again on the Saturday with the cell fitted to Joe's Rover 3.5 V8. I turned it on, starting the car, and Joe played with the timing.  We got it to run, then we turned off the fuel by blocking the inlet tube on the fuel line.  The cell was on the ground at this time, and Ron was peering into it when the vehicle performed to the revs that I hadn't seen before.  It was off the tacho[meter] needle up to 7000 rpm, but the engine revved past that easy, doing 10,000 in my estimation, and the response was instant.  I could believe we had done it, and referred to the others: "Okay; whose got the candid camera..."

We then turned off the power to the cell, and believed it would fail to run, but it didn't.  It seemed to run even better.

This was taking place in the matter of minutes, and really brilliant.

I couldn't stay and had to return to home for mealtime assistance etc.. Later, Ron turned up and had tea and stayed the night.

I was looking forward to fitting the cell to my Van -- a Mitsubishi L300 -- on the Sunday and driving to the beach; but when I turned up at Joe's, he was gone, and so was the cell.

Later I was told they hid it; so I didn't steal it.  So when all the shit finally settled I had given Davis seven days in which to apologies for breaching ethics etc.

It was four Years before Joe came back and apologized.  In the meantime, all stops had been put in place by me.  Anyone who wanted to know about it was referred directly to ring Joe or Ron.  Thousands did.

I realized we weren't ready, as greed got in the way.  It was too beautiful to mess up this way.

I wouldn't fit a cell on my vehicle after that; and only helped others, sometimes even building them; and giving them away.  [The] smallest was one that I used 35mm film container. These where easy. The science is plasma physics ionization saturation spark discharge -- nothing difficult, but too easy for most scientist to understand.

What Joe has done over time [. . . ] When we got back together, he'd changed the cell, added neutral tubes.  Although the first cell had them, we didn't realize how beneficial until duplication was needed, and trial and error on the gas production. With Ford's own alternative energy bulletin, it showed a cell with dual action such as vacuum or electricity production.  This is in fact Lorrenzo unit which I'd been given photos of, when we had shown the cell to others.

I'll continue shortly, but give you guy's something to read.

"It is harder to crack a prejudice than an atom." // "I'd rather be an optimist and a fool than a pessimist and right." -- Albert Einstein

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, and (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

-- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)

    "When you're one step ahead
of the crowd you're a genius.
When you're two steps ahead,
you're a crackpot."

-- Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, (Feb. 1998)
