This paper is dedicated to a man that I respect very much: David Pierre Hamel. A man who helped me tremendously in my quest into the understanding of antigravity, and pushed me to look in a new way at science.


In this short paper I would like to convey enough information to help anyone who would like to undertake any research on the Gravito Magnetic Device (GMD). I will give a brief description of the hardware and the theory behind the GMD. I will also talk about various researchers who have come up with very similar theories and results, plus, I will give a brief conclusion on the tremendous possibilities and potential for this technology.


At the end of 1989, I was fortunate to meet a man named, David Pierre Hamel. Mr. Hamel had been working for the last fourteen years on an energy system that he claimed would produce antigravity and an abundant amount of energy. Also to support his claim, he said that he had built four prototypes that demonstrated these effects. The first one was built in a forty five gallon drum, the second one was built on a trailer, the third one was built on a plywood base, and the fourth one was built on a eight foot in diameter platform at ten feet in the air.

His work paralleled the research that I was doing and so I devoted the past six years of research in collaboration with David Hamel to understand the unusual phenomena and to build a prototype that would demonstrate and conclude that such a technology is obtainable today.

So this paper is also dedicated to those who have the time and the resources to duplicate the GMD.

At this time the GMD is almost complete as well as the drawings. This paper will help you to understand the basic functions of the GMD but more detailed information will be available in the near future with a video tape on how to build, step by step, the model discussed in this paper. The drawing and video tape will be available through Project Magnet Inc.

I should note here that all building materials for the GMD are readily available almost anywhere in the world and the cost is relatively cheap. A lot of hand work is required but nothing that is unattainable. No special machining or parts are required. Only patience and devotion is needed.

Finally, I would like to emphasize that the power generated, surrounding the GMD, is extremely powerful and radiates causing interruptions of electron flow in normal electrical systems, i.e.: lights, cars, road transformers and interferes with electromagnetic transmissions. So it is without saying that this machine has to be taken extremely seriously when completed and activated. But don't be alarmed, if a control system is in place, it is easy to stop its effect. One of the main purposes of the GMD is to understand the effects of enclosed opposing magnetic fields that have varying vector angles; like theories set forth by Tom Bearden (1).

As far as I am concerned, David Hamel has brought about an incredibly powerful and useful technology which also generates antigravity. The GMD has a powerful upward thrust causing it to rise in the air. Similar work has been done by John Searl of England with his levi-disk experiments (2). When we understand the inner working of what causes the secondary electrogravitional fields, the possibility to create various devices enabling us to have plentiful energy of different types is mind boggling.


It should be noted that the configuration of the parts inside the GMD are put in such a way to promote an enclosed constant variation of opposing magnetic fields. In the resting state, the moving cones are balanced and stablized in a magnetic field repulsion, like a magnetic bearing. This is the hardest part to accomplish. the startup of the GMD is initiated by lowering a magnet at the center top of the shell inside the shell towards the momentarily magnetically balanced moving cones. As the center (see Fig. 1) magnet, which opposes the one attached at the center of the upper moving cone, is lowered inside the GMD, it forces the upper cone to move sideways shifting the magnetic balance between the cones inside the GMD. The cones stay offset to each other for a short while and then plasma like energy starts to build up around the GMD. The energy build up creates a shift of color from red-orange to light blue and then white. Following this effect, the GMD starts to lose weight and has an upper lift in a greater ratio than its total weight.

The GMD is composed of twelve major components (see Fig. 1): (A) the control mechanism; (B) four individual rings of magnets; (C) inverted cups; (D) three magnets attached to inverted cones; (E) wall rings; (F) outer edge rings; (G) outer edge extended ring; (H) moving cones; (I) plywood base; (J) double sided cones; (K) cone enclosures; and (L) inverted cones.

For details of the following see Fig. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

[These are in the paper, and we are getting them scanned onto disk for inclusion here. Otherwise, contact the author for copies. PB.]

A: In the aluminum casing is the control mechanism. It is composed of a large barium ferrite magnet that is raised or lowered by the use of a corkscrew type device. The aluminum casing is bolted to the upper body of the GMD. It should be noted that 1/2 inch spacers are utilized to allow for air flow. The magnets used in the control mechanism are identical to all the 'D' type magnets in Figures 1 and 2.

B: Riveted to the collar of each cone is a ring of magnets. Each ring is composed of several individual magnets with all their magnetic poles in the same direction, creating the desired effect of opposing magnetic fields. The purpose of the configuration of these rings are to minimize the physical weight of the moving cones 'H'.

C: Next to the collar, attached to the wall of the moving cones are 3 pair of inverted aluminum cups set at 120 degrees apart from each other. The dimensions of all the inverted cups is determined by two factors:

1. The distance between the 'E' and 'G' magnetic rings; and
2. The size of the ball bearings which fits into the inverted cups.

D: Each of the 'D' magnets is attached to a small aluminum inverted cone 'L' which reaches from the magnet to the collar of the lower 'K' cone and the two 'H' cones. Each of the 'D' magnets including the magnet inside the control mechanism 'A' are identical.

E: Attached to the wall are two adjustable magnetic rings. The purpose of these rings is to hold the 'H' cones centered and at the tip of the 'J' small double sided cones.

F: Attached to the outer edge of the moving cones 'H' are ring magnets at 90 degrees angle to the 'G' magnets. Its purpose is to support part of the weight of the moving 'H' cones and to generate more opposing magnetic fields. Each cone, 'H', 'K', has their 'F' magnets aligned in the same polarity.

G: Attached at the extreme circumference of the moving cones 'H', are ring magnets which are perpendicular to the 'G' ring magnet. They repel the field of the magnetic rings around the outer wall 'E', of the GMD. This is to insure that the 'H' cones are kept in the center at a proper distance. The distance between the 'E' and 'G' rings is determined by the strength of the magnet's magnetic field. Here it should be noted that all spacing arrangements are based on the magnets field strength.

H: The two cones are identical to the 'K' cones except that attached to the outer circumference of each cone is a ring magnet 'G'. I would like to note here, that it is important that the attached ring magnet 'G' is distanced far enough from the 'E' ring magnets, so that their magnetic field does not interfere with each other.

I: It is desirable to use plywood as a base as it is easier to attach, move and remove parts as necessary.

J: There are six small double sided cones that sit in twelve cups. The size and design of the cups allows sideways and wobble movement of the 'H' cones. It also used as a locking mechanism so the swaying movement of the 'H' cones is restricted to a certain point.

K: These two cones are mainly utilized to provide an enclosure as well as used to magnetically clamp the moving 'H' cones.

L: Small inverted aluminum cones designed to support and attach the 'D' magnets' to the lower 'K' cone and the 'H' cones at the collar. It is important to have these cone arrangement to give the air a path to flow between the layers of the cones, thus, triggering the swaying movement of the moving cones 'H' when the GMD is generating its electrogravitational field.


So far, the prototype has demonstrated the same mechanical effect that David Hamel claimed. It has shown that when the 'H' cone are manually moved, the air flows in and out of the center hole and the outer edges of the GMD. Since the control system is not completed and the outer wall is not covered yet, it was not possible for me to tell if the secondary effect would show up around the GMD. But, because all the construction of the deferent section of the GMD plus all the mechanical functions have proven to be right, it is me belief that the effect should show as predicted.


To my knowledge, there are five people that have come up with devices which uses the principle of opposition of magnetic field at vector angles. Devices which demonstrated unusual and similar effect to the David Hamel devices. John Searl from England with his levi-disk machine, (1). John Hutchison who has demonstrated the opposing magnetic field using Tesla coils with varying frequencies, (2). W. J. Hooper with his test apparatus, witch had an electromagnetic coil wound in such a way that each electromagnetic field would oppose each other and this in an enclosed and shielded metal can. He showed a direct relation with the field strength inside the can and the electric field appearing outside the can, (3). Floyd Sweet, who made several device proving that stressing a magnet with opposing magnetic field would cause the magnet to generate a secondary field on the surrounding space and then trap it with scalar wound coils (4). Wilbert Smith, he had demonstrated that using electromagnetic coils wound in the same fashion as the one by Hooper, but overlapping two coils of the same, would also produce unusual effects, (5). Tom Bearden, who is the one to my opinion the advance the best theory to explain the reason of such unusual energy behavior. He also explains what causes this reaction at the nuclear level, (6).

Pierre Sinclaire []


Scientific researcher Pierre Sinclaire, from Fort Langley, British Columbia, Canada has devoted years to advanced research into alternate sources of energy. His work drew the attention of various groups who commissioned him to build prototypes and experiment with these sources of energy. For example, he worked with:

Extensive study of John Worrell Keely's vibratory physics principles. In 1988 Pierre was invited by Dale Pond of Colorado, president of Delta Spectrum Research, to speak at a conference in Philadelphia on the topic of vibratory physics.

Hydrogen generation for mixing with gasoline to give more efficient combustion in conventional engines. Pierre visited Stan Meyer in Ohio and other researchers to see if they had truly advanced technologies.

The Thesta-Distatica energy converter of Methernitha, near Linden, Switzerland. (For more details see The Coming Energy Revolution, Avery Publishing, 1995, by J. Manning). Pierre built a prototype of the Swiss device and wrote a paper on its function and possible potential. His paper was distributed by the Space Energy Association of Florida and drew comments from the science community in Germany.

A transformerless switching power supply for laptop computers and lightweight power distribution systems. He worked on this invention for Master Tech. Corp.

Pierre Sinclaire has spent the last six years of research on the David Pierre Hamel story and work. Pierre Sinclaire is now close to completing, in collaboration with David Hamel, a duplicate of one of four prototypes that demonstrated antigravity and unusual effects in Maple Ridge, B.C., Canada.
