I just seen this video on Youtube.  It looks like there is so much power that the machine will destroy it's self when both motors are running.  Very interesting!

Yes, he says it will rip itself apart if he lets it go.

Seems like what is needed is a good crankshaft, connecting rod assembly and then a way to feed the revolving motor with power.  If what ol' McCabe says is true, you should be able to get at least 10 horsepower out of the machine with minimal loading on the two motors.

I still have to ask myself why these things aren't all over the place.  Seems rather easy in concept.  There has to be a catch.  Maybe there is no good way to mechanically harvest the power with the pendulum shaped movement.

I may take a crack at this one with the tools I have at hand.  ;)  Small scale model with off the shelf motors.  One thing I see is the stroke of a crank shaft might have to be variable, quite a challenge with the power displayed in the video.  With the hydrolic pump setup Frank has, not having it hooked up to a load probably has a big factor in the shaking.  Maybe two machines in opposite rotation would counterbalance the whole rig?

I like this video, using air power seems like a good idea.

Some Tesla turbines would be the ticket here.

Watching more of the videos on his channel.  Looks like he uses the name Fran rather than Frank.  I changed the thread title.

I need to find some flywheels...

Man I can not stop watching this guys videos. There is just something about this gyrating, pendulum, rock and rollie stuff that fascinates me. Something just tells me there is something there we are all missing. And its almost as dangerous as HHO. I thought the poor guy was gonna lose a few teeth one time !

This reminds me of Tesla's supposed "flying stove"  and eric laithwaite's gyroscopic propulsion where he was able to get forward movement out of gyroscopic forces.  A number of people have attempted this sort of thing with little success from what I can see.  One guy said that the key is in neutralizing the opposite reaction...which seems like an idea that would have some value.  I do feel that significant propulsion out of gyroscopic action is possible based on angular moment being applied downward against the earth which would then respond with the opposite reaction...To me the concept seems so simple that I wonder how it has seemingly been missed, unless of course I am missing something...which is entirely possible!!
