Notes: Fewer than eight arms is not feasible, as there would beperiods in which no weight is applied to the ends of any of the arms.With a greater number of arms there would be a more reliable  constant force applied on the ends of one or more arms. However,doubling the number of arms doubles the weight that must be lifted atany given time to feed the arms. However, if the radial distance to theend of an arm (or the center of the tank attached to the arm) is overtwice that of the radius to the inner tanks, leverage would beproportionally greater with the use of additional arms, albeit with ahigher minimum necessary force.It is also worth noting that proportionally longer arms have somedegrees less effective range once filled by the triple tanks, not onlybecause it takes longer for the leverage tanks to be filled, but becausethe length of the arm assures that it reaches the water within fewerdegrees after the horizontal.Curving Rail Perpetual Motion            nathancoppedge.com
 NOTE and CAUTION on my diagrams in general:All my diagrams were necessarily made at a time when I wascertain they would work. If I were not certain that they had valueof one kind or another, I would not have made them.Because the purpose of the diagrams is, as I see it, to perpetuatethe dream of their specific instance, I can do no more thanapologize for the imperative language I inevitably use. Theimperative tone is meant to pursuade the reader not that theconcept works, but that it MIGHT work, in the broad and generalsense that perpetual motion as a whole MIGHT be possible.
