Still working on my wheel in the garage, despite the imminent move from this house to another one.
Recent discussion on BW forum mentioned, once again, that nothing on paper will convince anyone of any claims to have found the solution to Johann Bessler's wheel. This has been my stance for many years and now I find myself having to (possibly) eat my words! I have some how convinced myself that I know how the wheel worked blah blah blah!
So making the wheel would obviously be the next step, but all sorts of excuses are available - the house-move is restricting my time and access to the wheel; my workshop tools are out-dated, suffering like me from old age; my drill has seized up and I should buy a new one but I borrowed my father-in-laws old one which has been lying in a pool of water for the last seven years and I am nervous about plugging it into the electricity, so it continues dry out on a radiator! Its too cold to work out side at the moment . . . . .and so on and so on.
All of these excuses are real (Really! Honestly!) so I am considering the other ways of getting my design verified. I have an idea which way to go, so please don't feel the need to advise, I have plans but in the mean time I must try to continue the build and hope for warmer weather, and do not worry I shall not be testing the water-logged drill, I shall dump it at the earliest opportunity and buy myself a shiny new one.
I wrote this a couple of weeks ago and since then I have made my decision about my next step. I left the above as it is because I think we all go through these procrastinatory steps and I thought it worthwile to describe it for the benefit of those lucky people equipped with superb workshops and all the right equipment and no lazy habits which lead to dilatory outcomes.
In the end I have solemly promised that, come what may, my theory will be published this year, wheel or no wheel. And because a paper hypothesis would be ignored I am taking steps to marshall some impressive supporting evidence for my hypothesis which hopefully will not be ignored. But in the end a wheel must appear.. . this year.
