Hendershot Fuel Less Generator
What is a fuel less generator?
All over the world, people live with the idea that it’s necessary to burn fuel in order to produce power that we can use. We have been persuaded that we have to buy coal, coke, timber, kerosene, gasoline, diesel, propane etc to burn, so that we can obtain our precious energy.
And yes, it is perfectly true that burning these materials will indeed result in energy. And yes, we need it and we use it in heating, cooling, powering engines etc. But the fact is that we don’t necessarily have to burn fuel to get the energy we need to power our devices.
One of the simplest and most efficient ways of producing your own energy is a fuel less generator. The fuel less generator is a device that is understood to function without the need for a wired power source. Strictly speaking, a fuel less generator is not self-powered, but since it doesn't burn fuel of any kind, in everyday language, it can be described as self-powered.
In the same way that a solar panel in sunlight uses no fuel and yet puts out electrical power, a fuel less generator draws energy from the environment and provides us with mechanical power. Actually, power is never “used up”, but just converted from one form into another. This is freely available energy that we don’t have to buy, but just learn to produce and then use it.
The advantages of fuel less generators:
• A fuel less generator does not need or depend on fuel (petrol or diesel) and it has nothing whatsoever to do with solar energy, wind energy or inverters.
• It preserves the safety of our immediate environment from noise and air pollution because it is noiseless and smokeless. Since it does not use fuel at all - there is no smoke which is usually caused by carbon combustion in fuel.
• The components needed to fabricate it are readily and easily available and can be sourced with ease.
• It can be built to any capacity, depending on the capacity of the load we want it to carry.
• It does not require any mechanical service or maintenance.
• It is free from current surge or electric shock
• It saves a lot of money individual and business owners spend on fuel.
• It is very safe to use, it does not wear or tear and it can work non-stop for as long as you want.
“The greatest invention of the age”
On February 28, 1928, a man called Lester Hendershot made front-page headlines across the nation with his invention of a "fuel less motor." Hendershot managed to develop power with his device by cutting the earth's magnetic field as our normal generator cuts its own magnetic field.
Not claiming his device to be a perpetuum mobile, Hendershot explained that it was tapping the earth's magnetic field and rotation as its energy source. The Hendershot Device concerns a self-running oscillator.
There are a pair of large air-core coils positioned in a "basket weave" pattern, cylindrical capacitors inside the coils, several high-value capacitors, a couple of standard transformers and a permanent-magnet "buzzer" for a regulator. The two large coils are tuned to resonate with each other.
Lester Hendershot lived in a small house near the railway line in Elizabeth, Pennsylvania. He had not been many studies, but he took courses in mechanics at Cornell University.
Hendershot's machine was not actually a motor, but a generator. It developed electricity which could power another motor but did not produce any usable motion itself. The idea for the generator first came to him in a dream in his early twenties. He forgot the idea for several years and was motivated to start working on it to replace the broken motor in his child's toy airplane.
His first working model was created out of the parts of a worn-out radio and would only operate when lined up north and south. After two years of more work he was able to develop a model that worked facing any direction.
Word traveled quickly that Hendershot had developed an unusual invention and he was invited by Air Corps Commander Lamphier to demonstrate his model at Selfridge Field in Detroit. Lamphier was greatly impressed and immediately had technical crews begin developing a larger model.
Charles Lindbergh observed the machine in operation and also was very impressed. William Mayo, chief engineer of Ford Motor Company, and William Stout, developer of the three-motor design of airplanes popular in the `20's and `30's, also investigated the device in operation and pronounced it genuine.
The model developed at Selfridge Field was able to light two 100-watt light bulbs or power a small sewing machine. Pilots and technicians at the Field praised it as the "greatest invention of the age."
Here are some extracts from newspapers, which prove the efficiency of Hendershot’s fuel less generator:

"Fuelless Motor Impresses Experts"
W.B. Stout Says, Invention Works Uncannily --- Washington Thinks It’s Important ~ Built On A Radio Principle ~ Armature Winding New -- Invention Inspired By Young Son -- Lindbergh Flies Here
Detroit, Mich, Feb. 25 -- W.B. Stout, head of the Stout Air Lines and designer of the all-metal tri-motored Ford Monoplane, declared here today that he had seen what he characterized as an "impressive" demonstration of the Hendershot fuelless motor two weeks ago in Pittsburgh.
Lester J. Hendershot, the inventor, and his associate. D. Barr Peat, who is manager of the Bettis Field at McKeesport, demonstrated the motor secretly yesterday in a hangar at Selfridge Field. This block test was witnessed by Major Thomas G. Lanphier, Clonel Charles A. Lindbergh and others.
It was explained today that the model used in the demonstration was a much smaller machine than an actual working motor capable of developing enough power to lift and propel an airplane.
Its designers claim for it that it runs on an electromagnetic principle, by which it draws its force directly from the earth’s field, and through the properties within the motor itself transforms these electric currents into power that can be delivered efficiently at a propeller shaft.
Calls Demonstration Uncanny
"The demonstration was very impressive", Mr. Stout said. "It was actually uncanny. I would like very much to see how a large model designed to develop power enough to lift an airplane would operate".
Mr. Stout said the model he saw was about the size of the tiny motors used in vacuum cleaners.
"I was told that the revolutionary feature was a hereto unknown manner of winding the armature", Mr. Stout continued. "Hendershot said he had succeeded in winding it in such a way that it draws energy directly from electrical currents which exist constantly in the air or in the ground. Such sources of cheap and inexhaustible power, of course, never have been reached before. The small model appeared to operate exactly as Hendershot explained that it did".
Neither Colonel Lindbergh nor Major Lanphier would express themselves at length on the test they witnessed yesterday. Major Lanphier admitted, however, that they were experimenting with it and referred all questions to Hendershot.
"He is the only one who knows all about it", the Major said. "Lindbergh has nothing to do with it, although he saw it".
William B. Mayo, chief engineer for the Ford Motor Company, was in conference with Major Lanphier, Hendershot and Peat at Major Lanphier’s quarters today.
"Invention Result Of Dream"
Hendershot Made First Fuelless Motor For His Son’s Toy Plane
The invention of the fuelless motor, tested at Detroit, was the result of a dream by its inventor, Lester Jennings Hendershot, who lives on "the street back of the railroad" in this town of about 3,000 inhabitants, 15 miles from Pittsburgh.
Although Hendershot was on his way from Selfridge Field today and is not expected home until tomorrow, his wife told of his conception of the machine and how the miniature model was constructed from the parts of a worn out radio which had been given to the inventor by his uncle.
Several years ago the vision of a machine which would operate from "earth currents" came to Hendershot in a dream, according to his wife, but it was not until last November that he actually started working on it.
His 4-year old boy had built a small airplane at that time and was considerably chagrined because it would not operate. The father was disturbed too, so he told his son he would build an airplane which would work. The result of that was the fuelless machine.
First Model Worked Toy Plane
When the miniature motor model had been constructed, Hendershot built a small airplane and placed the machine in it. A switch was turned and immediately the propeller began to move. The machine was not connected to any electrical current, but was running on its own accord from "earth currents".
For several weeks the little motor and the airplane rested upon a small table in the living room of the Hendershot home, which faces an unpaved street near the railroad tracks. One day D. Barr Peat of Bettis Field, the air mail port near McKeesport, Pa., visited the Hendershot home to see the model.
He immediately became enthusiastic and a few weeks later he and Hendershot were at Selfridge Field where permission was been granted to build a model large enough to operate an airplane.
Hendershot, who is only 29 years old, was born in Hyndmann, Pa. His schooling has not been extensive, although he spent a few months several years ago at Cornell University, where he took a few courses in mechanics.
He has not been employed at any particular task and has been known as a "freelance" worker. He has been a fireman and an engineer on the railroad, has worked in the mills near Pittsburgh, has inspected concrete and done electrical work. During the war he was a bugler with a machine gun company, but did not get overseas.
Still Wants To See "How They Work"
According to his mother, he has always been interested in mechanics and when a child he would insist upon taking his playthings apart.
And that desire has not escaped him a man, for even now he takes his own son’s playthings apart to "see how they work".
It required only a few weeks for him to construct the miniature model of his fuel less motor, although he worked day and night during that time. He had a crude workbench in the cellar of his home, which was placed near the furnace, where it was warm. Early in the morning he would be there, tinkering about, and late at night he still could be found there.
Hendershot’s idea was that the earth currents which make the aurora borealis in the skies could be harnessed by man and made to produce power that would operate an engine.
The youthful inventor has no other inventions to his credit.
"Works On Principle Of Compass"
Lester J. Hendershot first came to Bettis airplane field in McKeesport between two and three years ago and soon afterward brought one of his motor models to the officers of the field for inspection.
The fuel less motor works somewhat on the principle of a compass, and the original model would always operate when pointing north or south, as does the compass, but would not move when pointed east or west.
Young Hendershot worked nearly two years to overcome this defect, and finally he brought a motor to the Bettis field that appeared to be working perfectly. This motor was installed in a small model airplane and the plane flew, but owing to the failure to rig it properly, it crashed to the ground during one of the experiments.
Constantly improving the motor, Hendershot finally interested D. Barr Peat, manager of the Bettis Field, in his invention.
After a short time several capitalist were interested, and a few weeks ago the motor was taken to Detroit by Hendershot and Peat for an exhibition.
While no person at the field was in position to say authoritatively, it was stated that the capitalists who become interested in the Hendershot motor have about completed their arrangements for the purchase of the invention, or for controlling its production.
The fuel less motor, it is said, appears to have tremendous power and easily made between 1500 and 2000 revolutions per minute on several occasions while being tested at the field. Pilots and mechanics believe it to be the greatest invention of the age, and all appear sure it will be a practical success as an airship motor.
It was stated at the field that the inspection of the motor by Colonel Lindbergh was made in the interests of the capitalists who were arranging to purchase the invention.
I have the schematics and i plan to build this generator, as soon as that is done it will be posted and i will share the schematics whit you! :-)
I would like to build this device also. Please provide the schematic you use with the coil winding instructions. Thanks
Yea i share it, send me a PM whit your email and i send it! :-D
P.S: Inform me when it works ok? :-)
Woot Very nice!
I hope you didn't buy those plans off a site like rexresearch or something. If you did, a fool and his money have just parted ways :)
(and yes, I know this because I myself was a fool some 10 years ago and bought plans for 10$ for this device, but the plans aren't complete. They're worthless)
No not that site, but it wasn't that much money only a 100 Danish Crowns for it, so if it doesn't work no big deal..Then i will just find a way to make it work
Nicola Tesla did teach me a thing or two ;-)
Beside i can get my money back by ClickBank if it doesn't work :-)
A "money back guarantee" is worth about as much as the scammer you payed in the first place... We've tried those guarantees and the favourite reply we get from the scammers when they don't wanna pay back is "you built the device wrong" .. Kinda reminds me of the reply "it happened in another dimension" that is mosstly used when channelings fail from their brothers in scam ;)
I had always got my money back if it didn't work, ClickBank has a good service and no questing ask;-)
But it's rare i ask for a refund since i get most stuff to work! :-D
Anyways it's worth a try, and i believe in Lester Hendershot, he had been inspired by Nicola Tesla and he ask for help on his generator when Mr Tesla where on he's last age :-)
cool...no more electric payments that seem like mortgage payments...this is a long time coming...great article tyvm
