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
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

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
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 major obstacle.
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

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.
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.
