this guy is for real, been doing it a long time.
first time i saw it, it was a leaky , hydro setup that ran a pump for town water supply.

looks like he has upgraded it.

1hp motor can run a 30hp load.

Um.......yeah........this thing vibrates a lot. I do not see this guy breaking Newtons first law. The closest thing that comes to mind as a force multiplier is torque. Get a long enough stick and you can lift a car as long as the material can handle the stresses.

Note the mass held above the first motor shaft by the rod. The small motor gets the mass moving around in a circle using an eccentric drive. The momentum stored in the mass is transferred to the eccentric on the second motor shaft via a linear lever arm connecting the two eccentrics. The energy delivered to the first shaft by the small motor is transferred to the second shaft incrementally and periodically by using the inertial mass as an intermediary. This energy is then stored in the rotating mass of rotor and flywheels of the larger motor. It's basically doing the same thing as a gear box, but it could be a lot cheaper and more convenient in some settings. For example, energy can be transferred from one system to another over a short distance using linear rods rather than belts, hydraulics, or electricity. I think it's very clever. However, you don't get more energy from a baseball than is used to throw it, and I don't care how the baseball strikes the target.

force multipliers don't alter the amount of energy in the system, except for removing a bit due to friction. Thus a 1 hp motor cannot do what a 30 hp motor does in any given unit of time. The same job might get done but the 1 hp motor will take 30+ times as long to do it, the + is friction losses.


It can be done!
