The Drum, the Hinthorn device and the HFS wing build by Tracy.

The Plexiglass models (below)

" I had figured out how to solve the problem of the droopy wings by paying a very nice guy in a plastic shop to form me 4 domes with the horizontal wings at only a cost of 215.00 per. He later did my inner cones for another 30.00 per. The only advantage of doing this was not only did I not have any more problems with the wings, but you could see what was going on inside which was pretty much nada. It's kind of fun trying to get smoke to go downward into the inner cones after you have forced it up to the top to see how the air is suppose to flow using a lighted cigarette and blowing the smoke between the wings. Of course I was fortunate to find a hacker to do this for me. " Tracy.

" The bottom right shows my cup for my diamond shape pinions scaled down to fit the domes. I was very fortunate in that my friendly Canadian machine shop foreman only charged me 465 dollars for all nine pinions in US currency. I couldn't find an American machine shop to do the work even if it was done in aluminum. I used my cue balls for the shoulder pinions. " Tracy.

" The bottom right was the cover I used for the top. I finished the device only to find some more nada. During this period of time I had the good fortune to meet Dan Dial. I had decided to spend the winter in San Diego bugging Dan LaRochelle for any information he might have on the subject and try my hand at using the Enhancer to help people help themselves. This was done with high expectations of huge donations from those getting better all the time. However, most of my prospective clients didn't have any money, but they used the machines anyway and I was able to sell a few I put together myself from kits I purchased from Dan. I along with Bob Thomas left our machines at his place for him to study and maybe get the damn things to work. I returned the following summer with great expectations on making yet a third hfs after working with David in Ontario. Dan decided it was too much out of kilter to do anything with and he also informed me that plastic wouldn't work anyway. Dan now has the plastic domes and I have some of the magnets in my third hfs. This one you already have seen some of the photos of which I have about 150 to date. Don't worry, I won't be sending you these enmasse, but will accommodate anyone on an individual basis. " Tracy.

" The top photo shows the fan motor that finally burned up that I used to turn the floating magnet. The bottom shows the wiper motor in action. None of the photos showed any sparking. However, the largest sparks came at the bottom of the shaft at the motor where it was attached and the arm just before it turns down at a ninety degree turn. These two joints are loose so the arm could move when the motor rotated. " Tracy.

" The top photo shows the wiper motor being hooked up. The bottom photo shows another night shot and the arm extended to the bottom wing which was also loosely attached and showed sparks, but not in the photo. " Tracy.

Other Experiments ( below )

" This is the last photo of the series. The top photo shows an experiment that I made using the large aluminum cone hung by a string from the ceiling. There are as many magnets as you see on the table on the bottom inside of the cone. I watch this cone oscillate for a total of 45 minutes one day, just going back and forth.

The setup in the bottom two photos is an attempt to spin two magnets in rejection in opposite directions enclosed in the cones at high speed. The best I did here was burn up one of the ac motors. The TV never blinked once. " Tracy.

Test reports

Sujet : hfs report 9/22/99
Date : 23/09/99 03:28:13
From: (Tracy)

Good evening everyone,
This afternoon, I designed a bracket to hold my old time Buick windshield wiper motor I purchased and attached a 1/2 inch strip of aluminum to serve as the arm. This I attached to the bottom wing and began to oscillate the wing using my battery charger as a power source. The bottom wing oscillates about 1/4 inch and the top wing slightly less. The center floating magnet oscillates about 1/8 to 1/4 inch, and does not spin. Da fatlady was witness to this and I asked her to go home, a short distance away, and give me a phone check. I have a power transformer located approximately 60 feet from the device and it's estimated to be about 20 to 25 feet above the ground. The phone lines run from this pole to the house and the closest distance to the hfs is approximately 30 feet. Most of the phone interference was towards the direction of these lines and pole. My portable phone was disconnected 6 times with the furthest being about 5 feet and lying in a line towards the pole transformer. This line of sight and closer to the hfs also produced the loudest noise interference and when the noise increased, it continued to do so until the phone disconnected. The only other area of interference noted was below the device towards the edge between the phone lines and the hfs, above the edge of the wing itself which is where the magnets are and the opposite side of the hfs from a direct line towards the power pole. I then hooked up my TV along side the hfs on a level just above the wings and about 4 feet distance. Without my cable hookup, I can only receive one station and the reception is very poor, but the sound is fine. I noticed considerable interference with the tv, but not the sound. The strongest build up before the phone had disconnected was when I oscillated the top wing by hand while the bottom wing was being oscillated by the motor. When I turned the motor off, all the interference on the phone ceased. The windshield motor has been running for 75 minutes and I intend to leave it running all night.
Far as I can determine, it will continue to operate barring any breakdown in the attached arm. The last disconnect was when I had the phone close to the skin of the hfs and between the horizontal portion of the wing and floating magnet. The distance at its strongest detected interference was when the phone was within 2 inches of the skin and it was like this completely encircling the hfs. This is most interesting because it makes no difference concerning the location of the overhead phone wires or the pole transformer. It remains a constant all the way around the hfs. If it is still here by morning and the motor is still operating, then I will devise another design to hooked up the arm to the top wing and try that. I've also taken 5 photos of the arrangement. Will keep you posted. Tracy.


Sujet : report 2 hfs 9/22/99 @ 95 minutes

An interesting development just began. While still oscillating as before with only the motor, the TV is now resonating with the movement of the wings with both the sound and picture turning itself off and on. I've asked DA fatlady to come over and witness this development. Tracy.


Sujet : report hfs 9/22/99 @ 215 minutes
Date : 23/09/99 06:17:23
From: (Tracy)

The windshield wiper motor is still working and ever time its arms to the wing touch or move within the connected joints it sparks and sometimes very much. This also happens when aluminum touches each other. It does not have to be steel. The TV appears to just about had it with only large flashes showing every time it sparks. No program at all now. I was speaking to Louis on the portable phone earlier and it disconnected on him also when I placed it close to the wings. I've taken two more pictures with flash. It's now 9:02PM PST and will remain up for a while longer. I will also leave the motor running. Tracy.


Sujet : report hfs 9/22/99 325 minutes
Date : 23/09/99 07:48:16)
From: (Tracy)

The tests began at 4:50PM and it's now 10:15PM, that's 5 hours and 25 minutes or 325 minutes and the damn thing is still looking like that pink bunny rabbit with the ever ready battery attached to it, It just keeps running and running, but no lift off. I did make another test thinking that it must be grounded somehow to be sparking like it is. I detached the motor from the top of the structure where I have it bolted and isolated it from the hfs while it was still running. The sparking continued when ever the aluminum arm touched the frame as it leads to the bottom wing or when the arm moved while loosely attached to the bottom wing. I rebolted it and then ran an alligator clip from the bottom wing and struck the top wing. No spark. When I struck the clip to the frame from the top wing, still no spark. I then attached the clip to the frame on the opposite side and struck the bottom wing, lots of spark, but none from the top wing when I struck it. Each time it sparks no matter where the spark comes from, the TV goes bonkers with lots of large flashing from the screen. This flashing is so intense,it's like looking down into the tube itself and seeing the rear end of the tube. Getting sleepy so will retire and check on it later. It's still running now. Tracy.

My shopping spree in Seattle netted me enough material to begin my "Tracy's wheels" within the next couple of days. Tomorrow I will pick up from the machine shop my wheels and assembly will begin ASAP. In the meantime I will give you a list of material I will be working with that I purchased in Seattle. This does not include a complete list because I will be using material left over from my previous assembly and that which I will take off the current one.

The purpose of sharing this information with you is to let you know what I will be using and at what cost so you can compare your costs in the event it works and you wish to assemble one yourself. I repeat, this is a modification of the HFS and is my own interpretation of how it might work. When I begin assembly, I will make a report of what I've done and how I did it and I will try to do this on a daily basis. I usually make my health report in the early morning hours and will do this report at the same time. I will also be taking photos as I proceed and will try to make drawings when ever possible. Currently, my brother is making a drawing from a sketch I left him while I was in Seattle. Soon as it is presentable, I will forward it to you. I trust that if you will compare it to the HFS, you will understand it better. The object is to provide more surface area for what I consider the cones to be a capacitor without making it bigger and at the same time easier to assemble. I've done away with the outer rings and replaced them with a simple method of centering the rings (wheels) so the magnets remain in balance, but at the same time move across one another. I've also designed it so the outer skin is insulated from the machine itself and provides a means of air flow that will be vortex if in fact that is what is required. The center floating magnet is replaced with two fixed magnets in the center of the hub in rejection to each other. I will be using soda pop cans for my cups filled with concrete and miniature snooker balls (hard plastic of 1 and inch in size) for the pinions. I can also utilize the floating magnet I have now at the top and have considered the magnetic motor Dan La has introduced to keep it spinning. Rather or not this is necessary is yet to be seen. I have also designed a simple method to keep the entire device moving so that the two middle wheels will be in constant movement until the device energizes itself if that's what it will do. If at any time when I am presenting this information to you and you don't understand the procedure or have a suggestion for what you consider an easier method, then by all means speak up and I will either explain why it can't be incorporated or will incorporate it at that time. The following is a list of material I purchased for this assembly with a brief reason for its use in the machine. Most of the material was purchased at the Boeing Surplus facility in Kent, Washington. Keep in mind concerning the quantity purchased is because of the purchasing rules as follows: 1) What you see is what you get and no refunds. 2) If you can find another customer to share your purchase, then you don't have to buy the entire selection (piece) on display. 3) All purchases are paid for by check or in cash. 4) Pickup is usually made at time of purchase. 5) All material is new and is leftovers or obsolete from previous jobs. 6) Tools, equipment, and furniture are usually all used. 7) Most material is sold by the pound as well as some tools (pliers, specialized bits, etc.).
