Hi TM,

SOmehow I cant post any images because everytime I try all I get is this: , so for now I will just post the text.

I just tried this link and it should start to download but perhaps try it in firefox or chrome as it seems to work in those ones if the text sounds like it is heading in the right direction.

You must be logged in to see this link.

So here is the text to the plans.

In the first part of these instructions we are going to show you the concept of this magnet motor so you can understand what makes it work, this way it will be easier to build.

In the second part we will give you the step by step instructions with measurements of how to build this model in a practical way.



As you can see it’s easy to figure out how this magnet motor works. One property of magnetic attraction is that it is stronger at the point where the magnets are closer to each other, the closest it is, the stronger it gets, so with a spiral iron plate around a magnet, the magnet will spin towards the closest part of the loop (loop end), the only problem is when the magnet reaches the closest point, its going to stay there and not continue spinning. To solve that problem we
don’t use 1 spiral iron plate, we use 4, and we place them on top of each other (fig. A)

Figure A

Each loop end (B1, 2...), in a different place to each other so that when the magnet is passing
through one end it has the pull of the other 3 spirals to get it through the closest point.

Figure B

The loop ends should be placed
every 90% angle in the circumference so the 4 ends form a cruz(fig. C).

Figure C

The rotor is pretty simple, formed of 3 long slim magnets (fig. M).

Figure M

Each magnet placed at 120° angle from each other
in the circumference’s edge (fig. R)

Figure R

The magnets should be as long as the 4 spiral plates on top of each other.

Note: the spiral plates should be consistent, from the closest part of the loop to the farthest the distance should be increasing
gradually in a steady and equal rate(fig. D).




The following is one of many practical ways of building this motor concept, instead of using spirals as shown in the idea in the concept section, we will assemble multiple iron plates with holes on the center with the shape of a spiral (fig. A) , put them on top of each other separated by plastic plates (Fig. C) and sandwich them together with a configuration like the one explained above.

The materials used to build the motor depend on you , but be sure not to use magnetic metals besides the iron spiral plates
so it won’t interfere with the magnetic pull.

As soon as the motor is put together it should start spinning right away.
Also be sure that the spiral plates are firmly placed so they don’t move at all.

Fig A (spiral plate top view)
Fig B (spiral plate side view)
Fig C ( Plastic plate )
(Note: the R6 47/64 measurement stands for the radius of the outer part of the plates)

You will need to build 12 plastic plates (fig C) with the exact same measurements, you will also build 11 of the spiral plates ( fig A), they will be exactly the same except that each one will have 2 bolt holes in different positions of the circumference in order to align the spiral plates in the configuration needed.

In the figures sp1 through sp11 below you can see how the bolt holes alignment will change in relation to the other. On fig sp1 you can see the bolt hole alignment in relation the our reference point witch is in this case the bigger end of the spiral. The bolt holes are at 7.5 degree angle from the bigger spiral end, then, on all the next figures you can see how the holes will be located in relation to the first sp1 figure configuration.

Fig sp3

Fig sp4

Fig sp6

Fig sp7

Fig sp8

Fig sp9

Fig sp10
Fig sp11

Now lets discus the parts needed for the rotor. First, you need the rotor top and bottom, this are the 2 round plastic plates in witch the magnets will fit between. This two plates (fig D, E) will have slits in witch you will fit the magnets ( note: Because of standardized magnet sizes , the measurements of the magnets don’t need to be exactly the same but should resemble this one ( Fig H) in shape and should also keep the same height in order to maintain the proportions of the rotor and to work properly). Also the poles of the magnet should be all along the side of the magnet like shown in (fig I).

There should be 6 slits for the magnets and they should be based on the magnet size you get and should be placed EXACLY at 60° degree angles from each other like shown in Fig E .

Fig D (rotor disc)

Fig E

Fig F shows the back side of the same 2 plastic rotor parts in witch you can see an extrude at the center and the four bolt holes at 90° degree angles that go through to the other side of the disc, 2 of this holes should be aligned exactly to 2 of the magnet slits as you can see in fig G

Fig F

Fig G

Fig H (magnets) Fig I

You will need to get 6 magnets with dimensions equal or close to this one and the height should be the same or very close.

Next part you will need is a shaft for the rotor, on Fig L. u can see it , it is a long metal rod longer than 11 3/16” with 2 round small discs with 4 bolt holes 90° degrees apart (fig K) the same size as those from the rotor disc holes, the bolt holes from the 2 small discs should be aligned to each other as shown in fig J below. Fig J

Fig K

Fig L (shaft)

This Shaft (Fig L)and the two rotor discs (Figs D,E,F,G ) assemble together with the magnets ( Figs H,I) to form the rotor ( Fig )

To assemble it , insert the shaft into the hole at the center of the 2 rotor discs. Insert one on each side of the shaft , each with the magnet slits facing in and the round extrusion facing out (fig M) and put each of the 6 magnets in their corresponding slit.

Fig M

In order to hold the rotor together you will use 8 bolts and nuts that fit the holes in the shaft and rotor discs like in fig N , and between the to rotor discs you will hold the magnets in their corresponding slits . Be sure that ALL the magnets have their N poles facing out (Fig P), this is very important.

When the rotor is ready it should look like Fig O.

Fig N

Fig O Fig P
Now that we have our rotor ready it's time to put the rest of the motor together. To assemble the outer part or the motor all you have to do is put all the 11 iron spiral pates and the 12 plastic plates on top of each other with the bolt holes aligned and in the same position as in the sp1 -sp11 drawings and they should have the following order

1 -plastic plate

2 –sp1

3 - plastic plate

4 – sp2

5 - plastic plate

6 –sp3

7 - plastic plate

8 –sp4

9 - plastic plate

10 –sp5

11 - plastic plate

12 –sp6

13 - plastic plate

14 –sp7

15 - plastic plate

16 –sp8

17 - plastic plate

18 –sp9

19 - plastic plate

20 –sp10

21 - plastic plate

21 –sp11

22 - plastic plate

It should look like this

Fig Q

Fig R

Now the last 2 parts you will need to build are the bottom and top caps of the motor Fig S. This 2 can be made of plastic or any other NONE metallic material and should have bearings for the shaft to slide into and rotate. These 2 parts will go one on the bottom of the motor and the other one on the top with the rotor inside like in Fig T.

Fig S

Fig T

Now all that is left to do is to assemble the motor ,you are going to need 2 NONE MAGNETIC bolts that fit the holes in the plates tightly and should be longer than 10 3/16” and 2 NONE MAGNETIC nuts for those bolts (Fig U).

Fig U

Your magnet motor is ready.

Also be sure that the spiral plates are firmly placed so they don’t move at all.

Thank you very much for your interest in this invention, if you have any question just email me at and ill be glad
to reply as soon as possible.

If you like you can keep me updated with your building process.
