Bowman Magnet Motor Open Sourcing Project

Status: Project commenced Dec. 2003 with claim to a working device, which later, after three months, ended up running down due to demagnetization.  No replications were accomplished though several were attempted.

Q. Does the Bowman Motor Have A Patent?

   If a device had been turned down for a patent there is a record of that. Only the first inventor of the device can hold a patent. I have looked at the hole area of magnetic powered devices in the patent office. With the information that we have put on the internet will make the system unpatentable. But you bet this will be tested by some one.

      I found only one patent that used a kind of magnetic balance. Pull-- Patent 3992132 [Energy Conversion System] Nov 16 1976. This patent is off. And it has most all of the Bowman processes, and is old art, and not patentable. It is electromagnetic, and can run itself, and pull a car. This is the most powerful magnetic powered device ever made. I had a chance to see it but did not get there on time.

    Here are more magnetic power motor patent numbers.

  There are many more designs of magnetic power motors than this, and each year more are made. I can have a patent search done, so this problem can be closed. I will cost $450 for the search. I believe that this would also find Lee Bowman 's disclosed when he applied for a patent in 1954. This would be a big help for this project, if we could find exactly what Bowman would say. And would forever close the door for some other person trying to patent it.

Such materials are only a start, they tell you relevant patent numbers.  Then, you need to find the current condition of the patent.  And, there's sure to be tons of other unmentioned related patents.  In other words, it's the tip of the iceberg.
