The basic idea is also that a magnet is pushed through some gates. This photo shows an almost closed loop of gates.

Here you see the 'runner' mounted. The runner is not rotating; it just passes all the gates and will then stop (or go back). As soon as I close the loop, the runner will stop somewhere.

In the hope that mass was important I changed the device to what you see on this picture. There is the 'runner' fixed and the gates are rotating. Same results: a loop is not possible. It looks like that as soon as the loops closes, the 'power' is gone. This brought me to the next idea: what if the 'runner' is circling and going up at the same time? If I mount the 'runner' on a small trainwagon on a track, I maybe can pull the runner up I a spiral??? When the runner falls down on the track it maybe has enough speed to jump into the first gate again? I don't know, I'm working on a model now, but it's not easy.

On this photo you see the device I build to test the magnetic gate in vertical position. This to test the possibility to drag a 'runner' on a upgoing spiral where I told you about in an earlier email. It seemed that the vertical position is not a problem.

Here I have a device to check the possible length of the ramp. This is in fact an earlier experiment but since the 'spiral' is a long and climbing ramp the results are now important.

This was my Ohsako experiment. I couldn't get it running with a mounted stator. Holding the stator in my hand was better. No perpetual motion here.
