Tilt Motor: A Perpetual Motion Machine Concept Using a
Rolling Cone Set on a Circular Pivoting Track


The tilt-motor device, as first conceived, would consist of several parts:

Rolling Cone:
A narrow weighted cone resembling a rolling pin or elongated coffee cup
is attached to a central vertical axle, and joined so that it rolls when moved, and the
rolling, provided sufficient force or slant, naturally follows the contours of the circular

Pivoting Circular Track: A circular track runs underneath the central portion of the
cone. It is attached underneath the cone's axle to a pivoting joint that allows it to tilt in
whichever direction is supporting the cone's weight. However the tilt is not much more
than would be necessary to allow the cone to roll, if it were positioned halfway up the
slant of the track.

"Keys" or Pressure Plates: Eight of these are positioned around the edge of the tilting
track, so that when the pin is approximately halfway up the tilt of the track, one key
could be activated by the application of weight from the outside, wide point of the cone,
which extends beyond the outside perimeter of the track.

Levers: Eight levers are positioned underneath the keys and pivoting track, attached on
the long end underneath the keys, and on the short end to a structure which may be used
to tilt the track towards the activated key or pressure plate.

"Wickets": In order to accommodate the crossing of levers that is necessary to have
eight keys operating eight levers, the structures used to tilt the track are square wicket
shapes, attached to a lever further along the track, and permitting the nearest active lever
to pass through it in such a way that there is no conflict between the active lever and the
levers following.

"Steps" or Pedals: Flat metal pieces are fitted to each of the keys, following the outside
perimeter of the track in order to assure that one or more keys are continuously
