Hendershot Generator? Free Energy?
 
A spam I got today - I had not see this version, and came up empty searching for it here.

Loud infomercial selling plans for building it yourself. Can anyone verify the clippings as being real or faked?

Free energy ?



No.


Entertaining presentation, though....

Mister Earl 9th February 2013 02:22 PM

Is it real? Short answer, no. Long answer?

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

Take all of this in: http://www.lhup.edu/~dsimanek/museum/unwork.htm . If you wake up still convinced of perpetual energy/motion, take another complete dose. Repeat as necessary until cured.

That link didn't work properly on my notebook, but rather than fire up my desktop I found a YouTube video instead...

No. You don't get something for nothing. It's as simple as that.

I learned one thing. The power of having a good voice over guy reading your screed. Worth every penny.

When advocates of this particular brand of woo are mostly sites like this:
http://www.ashtarcommandcrew.net/for...ource=activity
you may want to question the validity of the claims. I think this "generator" has greater value as a pedestal for the Big Oil Conspiracy carcass that these cranks constantly need to point to. If such a tech truly offered these claimed benefits, any energy enterprise would have seen this as a cash cow decades ago.

I rank this up there with the likes of Dennis Lee and Joseph Newman.

Thank you. I'd not heard of that before, but it's usually true. "Will Earth Survive The Night?" might be an exception. :D

Hendershot Generator? Mrs Hendershot.

Free Energy? Not possible.

If the “secret” was patented it would have become public information and the patent would have expired by now. Why pay for something you could get for free via the patent records?

Well, that seems to be a poor endorsement....:D

Perhaps I wasn't clear ... I know the thing is not going to work as claimed!

It's that I had not seen this version of the "free energy" scam before. It seems to be some form of a "tank circuit" or oscillator.

My roommate - an engineer who designs power supplies - says he could get energy out of the leads, but only as long as it was close enough to a high voltage transmission line.
