Rotational Molding

I am slowly getting back on track after losing almost everything. The distroyed vehicle has been replaced by a vehicle that fit my needs for the moment. I have started at a job that I may retire from if none of my plans work out to pay more.

Spare time is now spent doing research and with family. When the family is asleep I dig into information on magnetics, sound, CNC machines, and listen to college lectures or TED talks for intertainment and inspiration for my rapidly growing notebook. There seems to be an abundance of physics notes and quick sketches of ideas that I can not currently afford to play with. With an expiremental lab in the works and slowly gaining capability, some test are underway. Shhhhhh.



Projects on the back burner

Magnetic vortex generator-Magnets positioned in rings so as to create a vortex magnetic feild driving a shaft resting on magnetic field bearings. Disc on the shaft have rings of magnets passing stationary coils that cointain magnetic balls. As balls flip inside coil, current is generated in coil.

Sterling engine generator – sterling engine turns disc with magnets that effect stationary coils with ball magnets inside or cylinder magnets inside stationary coils.

Magnet generator- disc/coil idea once tested with one disc could become an array of disc on a longer shaft with higher output. driven by any rotational force (magnetic vortex, wind turbine, sterlig engine, etc.)

Capture heat energy- run pipes or radiator inside chimney-drive sterling, steam,turbine,etc.

Welding light – mount solar panels in exhaust hood, weld booths, and in other exposed welding areas.

Thats the projects I can publish. Most of my projects are not ready for public consumption.

New situation

Working for a small company, baby due in the next 2 weeks, stress level above average. The new job is only a few minutes away and the work is easy but they continue to speak of lay offs. Last week I only had 8 hours but I have hope for the company considering expansions and equipment orders. I may take a few other part time jobs to fill the gap and see how it plays out.

Yet another day training a new guy. The new guy yet I am training other employees. I struggle to get the information I seek from those above me. I would like books and manuals, a structured training, and even a better checklist of task and skills.  A list for the one I train and for me.

I do not agree with the universal uniform, My employees would have rank and insignia displayed for knowledge and experience to aid in training and conflicts. A list of what I should teach and learn – for every rank would be helpful. I learn what I can on overtime shifts and outside work, I don’t believe that is how it should be – make a mentor system, make better instructions, let me know what the company wants and I will exceed but tell me nothing and expect that. I have borrowed and stolen books while asking friends for help and manuals to some extent of help but it seems that shouldn’t be my job. Perhaps I sho9uld change my path.

All joys are not equal

A post from a close friend that captured my attention this morning

   I’m sitting back contemplating how stupid it is of me to feel sorrowful that my life knows joy but I choose to apply it upon a scale. While it is true having my present life be different could be seen as exuberant bliss – only an idiot fails to see that it could just as statistically be seen as immensely foreboding. The life I have chosen is harsh by the standards of most. At the same time I have found those which have expressed envy to a degree. The saddest part of it all is where I am today is quite simply the positioning to perform a test of resiliency of personal strength, values, and beliefs. Get this part for it is the most important: the test was not only upon these within myself, but for those around me as well. I kept score, that can…

Yet another 12 hour day. Working 9 in a row to help catch up on bills and perhaps get hot water connected again.

The cold showers are like torture but when I come home in clothes stiff from the salt deposits of sweat, A shower is required.  I try to slam through the training at work but sometimes the heat is just so much that it seems my brain ceases to function. It was 104 degrees Monday and I drank a 12 pack of water but still had symptoms of dehydration. perhaps more water may help that.

 The overtime is required to the logic part of my brain. If you are deep in dept…….earn more.  That seems to be the only answer I have available at the time. I work at least 6 days a week for 12 hours with the hope of having all basic utilities and then on to other goals like a vehicle.  I have many goals but since my car crash and quite awhile without income I am in basic survival mode before projects and investments are even an option.

Perhaps this is some sort of cosmic test or restriction to see the results or temper me, either way I am on my way to survival and reaching goals and will learn lessons from the hardship. I find there is something to learn from every hardship an situation life seems to throw my way.



 So life has hit a critical point. Basic comforts are endangered.

The question to myself is weather or not to kick in my emergency plan at this point. The plan means to move to a solid logic internal operating system that is socially incompatible with society but gets results. Emotion is irrelevant when solid logic is all that matters, the income increases, the behavior and appearance becomes different and even strange to social circles but the goal is reached at the sacrifice of social standings. 

Perhaps I have answered the question my self. Social outlook is low priority compared to comfort and income. I can wear cargo pants or fatigues for function, have “multi tools” on my belt, pass company test and further my education, sacrifice social appearance for function and have a better chance of sucess.  perhaps the lowest paid guy in management has a more comfortable life then the most popular worker.

Depends on values I guess……or logic.
