NATHAN COPPEDGE--Perpetual Motion Concepts


Motive Mass Machine: A Perpetual Motion Machine Concept
Using See-Saws and a “Difference Weight” Applied to Alternating
Sides by Various Methods


Weighted See-Saw: A board or equivalent metal support pivoting about a
central perpendicular axis some distance from the ground, with
A. A support structure bearing its weight,
B. Two large equivalent weights mounted to the board at equal distances from
the central axis, and
C. A difference weight set to alternate from one end of the board to the other,
preferably mounted on some sort of track.

Difference weight: A minimal weight sufficient to tilt a weighted see-saw in
one direction or the other, depending on which side is currently uppermost.

Track for the Difference Weight: Initially I conceived of the track as a
semicircular tube mounted on top of each see-saw (see Diagram 1). This would
permit the difference weight to be pulled in alternate directions without much
slipping or ambiguity. Now I am conceiving of ways to string the difference
weights together, or tie them to a horizontal wheel, thus permitting uni-
directional alternation. A track may be present in that model as well.

Throw Weight: In the case of the catapult method, a weight used to alternate
the position of the difference weight, by transiting through an Outer Tube (see
Diagram 1).

Outer Tube: In the case of the catapult method, a tube used to control the
trajectory of the throw weight (see Diagram 1).

Catapult: In the case of the catapult method, a throw device positioned so that
it is activated by the heavier end of the weighted see-saw (see Diagram 1).
Normally one such device would be positioned under each end of the see-saw,
however it might be possible to have two catapults active on one throw weight,
thus reducing the number of Outer Tubes necessary (see Diagram 3).

Pulleys: Pulleys might be used to make the devices activate one another in a
chain reaction. (See Diagrams 5 and 6)

Horizontal Wheel: A more compact form might be built under a rotating
wheel using the force from the see-saw ends as impetus to cycle the difference
weights. In this case no pulleys or catapults would be required, but the method
is less flexible than the reactivating pulleys method described in Diagram 6, due
to larger dimensional requirements and the necessity for a circular track.
