Hola John et al!
Norman is still around, busy as always and living on his ranch in Waco.
As I understood it at the time, the people who actually owned the 2 EV
Gray motors shown at the conference sold them to someone I think in
Canada. The problem I think was the power tube, but you'd have to ask
Norm about all the details.
Perhaps he'll provide us with all the details and current status of the
There appears to be a company in Australia who has a very similar
technology which was reported in KeelyNet news last year I think. I did
a search and found the three brief article from the archived July 2005
07/30/05 - Another report on the Welsh engine
(Thanks for the URL Nick! - JWD) IMP has been working on the development
and optimisation of a high torque, low speed silent electric motor which
was launched to great acclaim in Hanover in April this year. IP Wales
has given IMP help with taking out a patent for a new design of a
5-stage high torque electric motor. The motor has no brushes, making it
ideal for use in the petrochemical industry and other sectors where
sparks present a hazard - meaning it has a huge functional advantage
over competitors products. The motor design offers several other
important features, which include full torque from 0 rpm, and no gearbox
is required. The motor also has 100 per cent speed control with the
motor only taking power as and when required. IP Wales has given IMP
help with taking out a patent for a new design of a 5-stage high torque
electric motor. This will be extended to cover not only the UK but also
mainland Europe, USA and Hong Kong.
07/29/05 - Revolutionary new Welsh Electric Motor
Imagine an electric car that produces hardly any noise, no air
pollution, and is as fast as a Ferrari. As well as high performance
vehicles, there are plans for a battery-powered family car with a range
of hundreds of miles. The motor is revolutionary in that it contains no
bulky permanent magnets. Instead it relies on transmitting electric
pulses across up to seven rotors, arranged in different phases. These
are "fired up" in turn, much like the pistons of an internal combustion
engine. There are no gears - the motor provides enough torque at one
revolution per minute to put a vehicle into motion - and it spins at up
to 2,500rpm. "Size for size, we can provide 400% more torque than any
type of motor currently available," says managing director John Bryant.
At present, providing enough battery life is a problem. But battery
technology is improving all the time, and Mr Bryant does not see it as a
07/29/05 - Is this Welsh motor the 'new' EV Gray motor?
The control unit, acting in a manner similar to that of a distributor in
an internal combustion engine, regulates the spikes, determines their
polarity (whether they be north or south) and directs their power to
selected electro-magnets in the main unit.
While this occurs, the recycle/regeneration system is recharging the
batteries with 60 to 120-amp pulses. The electro-magnets are located on
both the rotor and stator of the large motor. Attraction and repulsion
between the two sets of magnets causes the motor to operate and generate
horsepower. Note: EV Gray used 3 phase, the Welsh motor is using 7 phase.
All the EV Gray information with many other related items has been
compiled into George Moonhies eBook called "High Voltage and Free Energy
Devices" which can be downloaded for $15 at;
I think its a rather good book because it gives a lot of experimental
details and insights for those working in this field.
There was a note at ZPEpower that Peter Lindemann is about to come out
with his 2nd videotape, though I don't think they've been able to
duplicate any of the work he first announced at the conference.
Specifically a working power tube based on Teslas unidirectional current

I purchased the 2001 TeslaTech video of Norman Wootan talking about the
history of the EV Gray motors. I was wondering if anyone on this list
(like Jerry Decker) might know what ever happened to Mr. Wootan's project?
I created a wiki entry for him over at PESWiki.com. Just curious what
fate befell his project to set up a machine shop and tinker with those
motors, as we're now in 2006 and have never heard a word more from him?
I'm just getting into the Free Energy field, and happy to see all the
great web resources people have put up to share info.
