Building a V Track Motor

I decided to write down my thoughts on how I would build a V Track engine. This is for the folks that are trying to do so and have failed thus far. All the rules that apply to other magnetic designs must be also used in the V Track design.

I would build the track as your stator and build the rotor with the runner magnet(s). Your stator should be made of iron. Flux loops will occur if you do not heed this advice, and you wont even be aware of it. The flux on the opposite ends of the magnets (away from the rotor) must be pulled to the iron. This leaves the flux on the end of the magnets facing the rotor to do work without fighting the inherit problems of looping. You want the rotor to move, not the flux by looping. (Example: N-S-N-S and so forth.) Flux will loop from one magnet to the next killing the effect. Keep your stator magnets long. Thin button type magnets are useless in a motor design. At least 2" length magnets must be used and stuck to the iron stator case. This kills the dreaded flux loop. Then each magnet can act independently from the next in line to make the rotor spin. This cannot be expressed enough. Notice on my video of the runner traveling through one gate that the track is on a iron table. Also notice that I used stacked magnets for the track to get a longer length. These are the very critical reasons for doing so when I built the track and seems to have been over looked. The rotor must NOT be made of iron or any other metal. It must be made of plastic such as nylon. The runner magnet(s) should be LONGER than the wide end of the V Track. The strongest point of any cylindrical magnet is at the center of the pole face. You do not want this strongest point to match up with the face(s) of the track magnets. If they do, you will have a very strong lock up point at the gate which is the wide end of the V. The rotor cannot overcome this. Allow your rotor or runner magnet(s) to extend past the widest point in the track by at least 1" on both ends. Then you will slip right through the gate area. Experiment by using several runner magnets in the rotor. This will also help to get you through the gate area. 3 pushing or pulling 1 and so forth. I hope this information will help anyone trying to build the V Track motor design. I would consider doing it myself, but I don't have the means to do so at this point in time. Also notice that my email address has changed if you have questions.
