There is a comment about this very subject. My recommendation is that we listen to Ronnie and do things as he has figured them out. If five of us or so get something to work, we can all show videos the same day, the same hour, then compare notes.
My point is, it is a complete honor to have a man still alive to help us through this journey. Please do not pressure him to show his goose laying the golden egg. That's not what he is here for. He's here to show us how to raise geese with similar qualities as his. Please do respect this. The title of this thread is "Understanding How Stan Meyers Fuel Cell Works", not "Showing a Working Stan Meyers Water Fuel Cell." A big difference.
So please gentlemen work together, ask pertinent questions and build something you are proud of. I'm sure at some point when Ronnie feels enough people are finally "getting it", he'll be happy to show his work in comparison to ours. It's a win-win situation at that point.
Trust me, when I'm there, I'll be happy to assist others as well and will show what I'm doing and how I'm doing it. We have to do this together though as a group effort, not as individuals seeking some sort of spotlight. Please, put yourself in Ronnie's shoes and think about things from his point of view, then ask yourself, what would you would do?
as my standards are set...
if you feed a starving man fish, he will be good for a day then be hungry again, Bus if you TEACH a man to fish, he will never be hungry again. AND he can teach others to fish!!
what Ronnie is doing TEACHING us what he knows. there is no reason for anyone to expect anything else. and if you do, you are in the wrong place.
Ronnie already told us over and over that he is not the best teacher. an there for we must use patients, and give ronnie the time and space needed to explain such a project.
Trust me, there is no one " key" to getting this to work. its all about understanding each step in the process. I would advise Ronnie take some time to wright a simple step by step procedure list to just "tuning"
then one for "coil constriction" including the known math.
then one for "cell design"
this will help us all UNDERSTAND what is needed to achieve the "simple task " of making gas.
what im saying is there is 100 ways to skin a cat, you can use manny types of wire, there is no right or wrong type. ( with in a set of parameters)
this is the same for the cell and for all the parameters.
we all know that building something EXACTLY as Stan did still will NOT give you results. this is due to the nature of understanding whats going on before you can get something to work.
any how, i think we all get this idea of being taught, not told, and its been said by many already, so ill leave it be.
there WILL be home work required!!! and we can help each other get the correct answers! ( with our teacher looking over us)
As for not being able to edit post here. I can move this thread out of my bench and even the guest can see it and you will be able to edit your post. I have no problem with it at all. Just let me know if you want it move and I will see that it gets moved either by me or a moderator.
to the standards of OSE i like this idea a lot.
say the words and ill move it to a new home...
