. Nikola Tesla : A Spark of Genius (Lerner Biographies) ~ Ships in 2-3 days Carol
: ^. Dommermuth-Costa / Library Binding / Published 1994 Our Price: $25.26...Editorial .-'fT^ ■ Reviews: From Booklist Gr. 5-9. The author traces the life and career of an eccentric but brilliant inventor and pioneer in the field of electricity, from his birth in Croatia through his technical training in Europe and his subsequent successes and frustrations in America. A less familiar name in this country than fellow inventor and rival, Thomas Edison, Tesla discovered and perfected the principle of alternating current (AC), as opposed to Edison's direct current (DC). The author credits Tesla, rather than Marconi, with the invention of the radio and discusses Tesla's pioneer work in the field of robotics. The writing is sometimes disjointed, and much of the material is overly anecdotal. The fact that the author is a member of the Tesla Memorial Society and a definite "fan" comes through loud and clear, but this is a reasonable choice for libraries searching for a wider range of biographies for younger readers, especially in the area of science, and for developing collections that offer a multiethnic look at human achievement. There are many black-and-white photos, a few technical drawings with basic explanations as to how various inventions worked, and a short bibliography of books and articles. Jeanne Triner.
Nikola Tesla's Earthquake Machine ~ Usually ships in 24 hours Dale Pond, et al / Paperback / Published 1995 Our Price: $16.95Reviews : Book Description In 1935, Nikola Tesla revealed that an earthquake in the region of his New York laboratory in 1898 was the result of a machine he had been experimenting with. This book presents his technology based on sonic vibrations. Now for the first time the secrets of the Tesla Oscillator are available to both the layman and advanced researcher.
From the Back Cover Nikola Tesla's Earthquake Machine...Tesla's Original Patents plus New Blueprints to Build your own Working Model... Now for the first time, the secrets of this machine are available to you... This new manual presents a new technology. It is based on sonic vibrations which can be produced by a comparatively simple apparatus - The Tesla Oscillator. In the oscillators or transmitters described in this book, a resonance effect can be observed. Resonance
appears to be an ever-expanding, magnifying effect with these transmitters. Very little input energy is required to set the device in motion and build that motion to tremendous levels of usable energy. The principle employed is called "Amplitude Modulated Additive Synthesis" by music industry engineers. We have included a full chapter on vibration physics to explain what happens. Excerpt from the New York World - Telegram, July 11, 1935 - Nikola Tesla revealed that an earthquake which drew police and ambulances to the region of his laboratory at 48 E. Houston St., New York, in 1898, was the result of a little machine he was experimenting with at the time which "you could put in your overcoat pocket." The bewildered newspapermen pounced upon this as at least one thing they could understand and "the father of modern electricity" told what had happened as follows: "I was experimenting with vibrations. I had one of my machines going and I wanted to see if I could get it in tune with the vibration of the building. I put it up notch after notch. There was a peculiar cracking sound. "I asked my assistants where did the sound come from. They did not know. I put the machine up a few more notches. There was a louder cracking sound. I knew I was approaching the vibration of the steel building. I pushed the machine a little higher. "Suddenly all the heavy machinery in the place was flying around. I grabbed a hammer and broke the machine. The building would have been about our ears in another few minutes. Outside in the street there was pandemonium. "The police and ambulances arrived. I told my assistants to say nothing. We told the police it must have been an earthquake. That's all they ever knew about it." Some shrewd reporter asked Dr. Tesla at this point what he would need to destroy the Empire State Building and the doctor replied: "Vibration will do anything. It would only be necessary to step up the vibrations of the machine to fit the natural vibration of the building and the building would come crashing down. That's why soldiers break step crossing a bridge." His early experiments in vibration, he explained, led to his invention of his "earth vibrating" machine.
The Tesla Disc TurbineB
"This book describes the concept of the Disc Turbine as originally patented by Nicola Tesla, and provides concept designs for modern versions of the engine, incorporating the Disc Turbine as a power unit for applications in Automobiles and Light Aircraft, and also give descriptions of the original Turbines and the prototype machines. It also provides designs for other machines operating on the principle of a disc turbine: an Air Compressor, an Air Motor, and a Vacuum Exhauster. The facility of the principle to operate in either a clockwise or anti-clockwise direction of rotation, in a single machine, using only a two-way valve, is described, and applications where this feature can be applied to advantage are suggested.
Data is given on the performances attained by the original engines, together with stress and performance information. Finally, we give a design for a modernized version of the original turbine, to one half scale, complete with working drawings and manufacturing instructions to enable the model or experimental engineer to construct a fully operational engine, using such tools and equipment as are usually available to model makers.
It should be apparent that this dry foreword written by the author sounds like the abstract of a paper published in a professional engineering journal. That's because the author IS an engineer who has a number of published papers. Cairns is no novice. He knows what he's talking about. Chapters include: Tesla's original machine * The Disc Turbine Operating Principle * The first experimental Turbine * The 9.75 in. Disc Prototype Turbine * Larger Turbines to 60 in. disc diameter * Future developments * Other Rotary Engines * The Automotive Disc Turbine * Air Compressor, Vacuum Pump, Air Motor, Light Aircraft Engines * The Dual Direction Facility * Stresses in the discs and performance calculations * Building a model Disc Turbine * Drawings for a model Disc Turbine* Since this is a 36 page "booklet" each "chapter" is necessarily short. But what you DO get is loaded with valuable information. Remember this is written by an engineer who is interested in getting results. The last nine pages are dedicated to the model with six pages of detailed, dimensioned drawings. The model described is approximately one half the size of the original Tesla unit, but uses present-day materials and techniques... Required machine tools are a lathe, with a 3.5" centre height, ideally with a milling attachment, and circular table, a bench drill, micrometer or vernier, and conventional hand tools (metric dimensions are used)
From the testing section: "Run for no more than two minutes, stop, check the housing temperature. If cool to slightly warm, re-open the valve and continue running. At around 1.75 bar and 1.5 cfm, the turbine will attain a shaft speed of 20,000 R.P.M. At all times ensure a supply of oil to the bearings, and continually monitor the housing temperature. It should be noted that the prototype attained a speed of approximately 50,000 R.P.M. under no-load conditions; hence it is advised that a brake or dynometer be provided on the shaft."

The Giza Power Plant; Technologies of Ancient Egypt: by Christopher Dunn
Our Price: $14.40...Paperback - (September 1998) 281 pages; Editorial Reviews : Suspicion naturally arises when you read a promo line on a back cover that says, "This is the most important book concerning the Great Pyramid written in the last 20 years." In this case, however, it may be fact. In writing The Giza Power Plant, mechanical engineer Christopher Dunn reverse-engineered the Great Pyramid at ■ '■■■■■-■I-'" - ■■ Giza to discover its use. His startling conclusions blow the heck out of traditional Egyptology's rather silly notions that it was built with copper tools by a society that lacked the wheel. While revisionist pyramid studies are rife with ridiculous theories that give the topic a bad name, The Giza Power Plant takes into account existing fact and artifact without having to rely on un-provable assertions. A must-read for truth seekers who aren't afraid to consider the idea that Western culture of the 21st century may not be the pinnacle of human evolution and achievement. --P. Randall Cohan. The author, Christopher Dunn ([email protected]) , August 22, 1998. The Giza Power Plant comes of age. This work was started in September 1977 and will be of age when it becomes available for purchase. The book addresses the feasibility of the pyramids as tombs theory and presents hard evidence that proves that the ancient Egyptians were much more advanced than we have previously believed. So advanced, in fact, that they created stunning artifacts that we would have difficulty producing even today! The Giza Power Plant presents ample evidence that many stone artifacts found in Egypt could only have been produced using highly precise and sophisticated machine tools. The question then becomes, "what powered these machine tools and where is their power source?" To answer this question we delve into the Great Pyramid of Giza with a thorough analysis of its inner chambers, architectural and construction characteristics, anomalous substances, and unusual artifacts carelessly noted or closely scrutinized by researchers in the past. This analysis leads us to the conclusion that the Great Pyramid was actually built to serve as a machine. A machine that provided power to the civilization that built it and invested so much time and energy. How did it do this? By responding harmonically with the seismic energy contained within the Earth, the Great Pyramid became a coupled oscillator and drew energy through it and converted it to electromagnetic energy through the sophisticated use of acoustics and quartz-bearing rock.
