Bowman Permanent Magnet Motor
1954 variation of the Peregrius (Perrigrinus) motor
(1269). Purportedly ran for 1 year, after which the Alcomax magnets were
tested and shown to have not diminished in strength. Replication has
shown to be more difficult than thought.
Motor Open Sourcing Project - Plans posted based on a design that
worked for ~3 months before it ran down due to demagnetization of the
magnets. Some speculate that a different orientation that doesn't
stress the magnets as much might work better. No one has yet been able
to replicate a working device from the plans.
Motor (Calloway Design) Progress - latest pics compilation by Eric
Vogels. Still no independent replications, but several are close. (See
Vogel's Bowman Magnetic Motor Instruction Site - photos, specs,
parts list with sources, pics, instructions, animations, how it works,
etc. Featuring Robert Calloway's iteration of the Lee Bowman
This reflects well how we envision Pure Energy Systems
open sourcing projects to be displayed. Now, let's see a bunch of
working devices come of this. -- Sterling D. Allan

posts transcribed version of what is thought to be the first presentation of
a permanent magnet motor in 1269, and describes Bowman resurrection of the
device in 1954.
mention on Bessler wheel forum - "Some free energy people who claim
to have built working permanent magnet motors often claim that after a
period of long duration operation the magnetic flux densities of the magnets
are tested and there is no enhanced decrease as you would expect if the
above were true, one famous example of this is in the case of Lee Bowman a
Californian inventor who built a strange looking device that had three
wheels with magnets positioned around them, (the wheels were geared to each
other to synchronize their movements). This device was apparently run for a
year under load! after that Mr. Bowman took all his Alcomax magnets that he
had used and sent them to the manufacturers, apparently there was no
decrease in the field strength."
