5 things to know about this eBook 1. This eBook is best read using Adobe Acrobat Reader 2. This eBook is a direct electronic representation of the physical book, therefore, it is not optimized for viewing on a computer screen. You’ll need to scroll up and down to read the columns. We kept it this way to allow reference, to exact locations in all versions, when answering questions or addressing corrections. 3. The eBook page numbers may not match the PDF le page numbers. In ‘print’ books, there are commonly a number of pages, at the front and back, that are not numbered or use Roman numerals. PDF les typically start by numbering the front cover page 1. All our references to pages in this eBook will assume the ‘print’ page numbering. 4. This eBook has full page links over most of it’s pages. Clicking on a page will connect you to the Eagle-Research website (usually the Resources Section). Scroll using the sidebar. 5. This eBook was ‘State of Art’ when it was initially published. Today it is still excellent basic information. However, as always, our technologies improve, and information becomes obsolete, faster than we can print, publish and circulate updates. Our solution - Eagle-Research Online Resource sections that contain: Parts and services supplier information; application comments; options; updates; upgrades; support links; support documents; FAQ entries; wiki entries; blog entries; forum discussions; test results;, product installers; product manufacturers; post-publication technical corrections. Since 1984 Eagle-Research has been committed to gathering energy information from diverse sources, experimenting with it , merging possibilities into actuals and distributing solutions that empower the individual. The Eagle-Research Online Resources will help you start your project with the latest information ... then continue to upgrade your projects when new information becomes available.

Eagle-Research is an organization that develops and distributes practical energy solutions. We define practical as simple, inexpensive, environmentally-considerate, easy to build, low maintenance and, applicable to small scale energy needs. We gather information from diverse sources, perform comprehensive experiments using rigorous standards, then publish how-to books to share the results with other researchers and the general public. We believe that writing books insures that these technologies will be secured public knowledge, and that our patent-free philosophy promotes increasingly better energy solutions. Eagle-Research does not accept government grants. The money from the sale of our books and devices is used to finance on-going research.

This book is sold for research and/or experimental purposes only. Therefore the results, which will vary according to the user’s knowledge, expertiseand application should be considered strictly experimental. George Wiseman, his associates and/or distributors, assume no responsibility for damage or injury due to the reader’s use or misuse of information or instructions presented herein. Although care is taken to present accurate information: “If we knew what would happen, it wouldn’t be an experiment.” Therefore, the author will not retroactively inform or reimburse buyers if (when) there are corrections or updates to this book. Contact Eagle-Research for the latest developments. If the conditions outlined in the proceeding paragraphs are not acceptable, the buyer will return the book immediately to the seller, for a full refund.

Eagle-Research is a research and development organization dedicated to finding the best possible energy solutions. Because the nature of research and development is an evolving process, we are continually improving on the technologies we are working with. Though we’re proud of our commitment to constant and never-ending improvement, we do recognize there is an unfortunate side-effect: Our ‘best’ today will pale in comparison to our ‘best’ tomorrow. At any given date, the Eagle-Research discoveries, which are distributed in the form of web information; books; videos or devices, are at varying stages of development. Therefore, by the time our most up-to-date ‘best’ can be compiled, organized, produced & distributed, we’ve already improved upon the information. We’re working as fast as we can.

“I differ from most inventors in many ways. For one, I actually make my living and finance continued research by inventing. Two, I don’t hold-back ‘secrets’ of my innovations. Three, I do not patent my work. It is distributed worldwide as public knowledge, so no one else can patent it either. Actually, the patent office is very inefficient and people have gotten patents on my technology... usually to fraud investors. However, the patent is worthless. Patent law states public domain information is not patentable.

As more work and research gets done, we will write further books in each of our lines of research. By writing a series of books in this manner, we can keep you updated on the latest information on energy saving research. Selling information is how we make money to continue our research. Therefore, you will not do yourself or your friends a favour if you copy this book to distribute to your friends. In doing so, you deprive us of funds to advance the research that will help us all.

In almost every step of progress in electrical power engineering, as well as in radio, we can trace the spark of thought back to Nikola Tesla. There are few indeed who in their lifetime see realization of such a far-flung imagination. (E.F.W. Alexanderson)

Yugoslavian born Nikola Tesla (1856 - 1943) was undoubtedly a visionary of profound impact. He was a prolific writer, had an extraordinary ability to visualize, and his inventions were so far ahead of his time that we have still not caught up. Even a mere glance through a fair account of Nikola Tesla inspires, causes one’s mouth to drop open and one’s heart to sink. Where could human civilization be now if Tesla’s genius had been fairly and fully celebrated? Perhaps, more to the point: Where couldn’t we be? It is because of Nikola Tesla’s legacy of inspiration that EagleResearch, Inc. (ER) and many other admirers pay their respects to his work by whatever means they are able. In this case, ER has compiled this list of Nikola Tesla’s patents in the hopes of helping others to learn from and take further steps with his work.

Inspiration—that is what he gave to other inventors whose endeavors his life spanned, and that is what his work continues to give to technical specialists in these times. On the occasion of Tesla’s seventy-fifth birthday (1931), his contemporaries wrote that his lectures where then both as imaginative and inspirational to productive development as when they were first published forty years before that: In reading of Tesla’s work one is constantly struck by his many suggestions which have anticipated later developments in the radio art. (Louis Cohen) There are three aspects of Tesla’s work which particularly deserve our admiration: The importance of the achievements in themselves, as judged by their practical bearing; the logical clearness and purity of thought, with which the arguments are pursued and new results obtained; the vision and the inspiration, I should almost say the courage, of seeing remote things far ahead and so opening up new avenues to mankind. (I. C. M. Brentano) Today, we yet find that the writings of Tesla retain their undiminished power of inspirational endeavor to the reader. Tesla was indeed out of his time, and this biography represents a distinct achievement in overcoming unusual investigative obstacles to bring his remarkable story to life. (Leland Anderson) from the Introduction to Tesla, Man Out of Time, by Margaret Cheney © 1981, Published by Prentice-Hall ISBN: 0-13-906859-7

In this reference, we list alphabetically by first author's last name. I am including cross references to other reference sources that list some of these documents. These cross references are mostly for my own use, to assist my research. Example: I bought and received a document called “Tesla Turbine References” by Leland (Lee) I. Anderson from ࡕ. When I list (here) a document listed in the Tesla Turbine Reference, I will list it as [TTR ##]. The Tesla Turbine Reference has an Appendix taken from the reference section of Tesla


www.eagle-research.com / Tesla Disk Technology Reference

Turbomachinery by Professor Warren Rice during his tenure with the Arizona State University. I will cross reference to that Appendix with [TTRA ##]. Articles that are included in the book "Boundary Layer Breakthrough" by Jeff Hayes, I will cross reference with [BLB pages ##]. In effect. "Boundary Layer Breakthrough" becomes a source for several documents that you acquire all at once. Jeff Hayes now has a much better book called Tesla's Engine. Available through TEBA, see below. If I've not been able to locate a document I say so in the "Status", which refers to the status in my own personal records. • Checking: = I’ve discovered that a document exists and I’m trying to find where to get it. • Ordered: = I’ve found it, am buying it but do not yet have it. • Acquired: = I have it in my files. During my research to find the references in the TTR, I came across further documents and I am documenting my acquisition techniques to make this a more complete and user friendly reference than the TTR. Eventually I will include a short explanation of each document to assist the researcher using this reference. ࡕ Twenty First Century Books specializes in information on Nikola Tesla, who was the originator of the disk turbomachinery concept. Tesla is also well known in other engineering fields. Another good source of information on Tesla technology is Tesla Book

Company, PO Box 121873, Chula Vista, CA, 91912. Phone 1-800-398-2056. A third source is the Tesla Engine Builders Association (TEBA), 5464 N. Port Washington Road, Suite 293, Milwaukee, WI, 53217. These people are actively promoting construction and application of Tesla disk turbomachinery. They have a newsletter that you'd be wise to subscribe to ($25 per year for US resident) if you're into disk machinery. A fourth source for books on Nikola Tesla is the International Tesla Society, PO Box 5636, Colorado Springs, CO, 80909. You can order books from their comprehensive resource guide.

...”Not to stagger on being shown through the laboratory of Nikola Tesla” McGovern would later recall, “requires the possession of an uncommonly sturdy mind... “Fancy yourself seated in a large, well-lighted rom, with mountains of curious-looking machinery on all sides. A tall, thin young man walks up to you, and by merely snapping his fingers creates instantaneously a ball of leaping red flame, and holds it calmly in his hands. As you gaze you are surprised to see it does not burn his fingers. He lets it fall upon is clothing, on his hair, into your lap, and, finally, puts the ball of flame into a wooden box. You are amazed to see that nowhere does the flame leave the slightest trace, and you rub your eyes to make sure you are not asleep.” If McGovern was baffled by Tesla’s fireball, he was at least not alone. None of his contemporaries could explain how Tesla produced this oftrepeated effect, and no one can explain it today. ... from Tesla, Man Out of Time, by Margaret Cheney © 1981, Published by Prentice-Hall ISBN: 0-13-906859-7

George Wiseman is the founder and president of Eagle-Research, a non-profit organization that develops and distributes energy-saving solutions. He is multi-talented and multi-degreed, but singular in his mission: to promote self-sufficiency at the individual level by discovering and sharing the best, all-around, practical solutions. George attributes his self-reliance, resourcefulness and commitment to our natural environment, to his rural roots. “Dad didn’t believe in having any equipment on the place (hobby farms in Montana, Oregon, Alaska and finally a ranch in British Columbia) that we couldn’t fix ourselves. We had running water if we ran and got it. And electricity was something that came in batteries”. His farmgrown, western cowboy philosophy combine well with his inventor persona to create a world-class visionary. He takes the hand-up rather than the hand-out approach to everything. Since 1984, George has been making his living as an inventor and author. His fuel-savers have gained him a worldwide following of satisfied consumers who eagerly pursue his work for new offerings. George continues to impress his customers, peers and competition with practical innovations that can be successfully home-built. His latest product, the ERxxxx WaterTorch, is making great waves in dozens of industries around the globe. As much as anything, it’s his commitment to patentfree technology development that has earned George Wiseman a champion reputation. Openly sharing research findings benefits everyone by constantly elevating the standards of viable energy solutions. George’s work has been featured on radio and in newspapers around North America and at many ‘alternative’ energy gatherings including the International Tesla Society Symposiums and Exotic Research Conferences. He lives with his bride, Tenaj, and their brood of cats, in a lush valley of the Rocky Mountains. Individuals wishing to participate in the project may access the required reading list, that will be updated from time-to-time, on the Eagle-Research website: (www.eagle-research.com) Comments and/or contributions are invited from anyone who is committed to cultivating dream seeds. Nay-sayers are better not to waste their time. Negative input will be wholeheartedly disregarded.

Too low they build, who build beneath the stars.❞ - Edward Young -

We appreciate your contributions. Your input helps us further develop these technologies into more and better practical solutions. Remember though, we are a non-profit organization putting our time and money primarily toward research. There is seldom anyone in the office to answer the phone. For budget reasons, we usually do not return long-distance calls unless calling collect. We prefer to have customers contact us by email, FAX or letter.

Orders are filled first. Mail is answered when possible. Send orders and technical questions in separate correspondence or your order may be delayed. If your calculations are incorrect or there is missing information and we cannot reach you by email, we will have to wait until you contact us before we can process your order.

Eagle-Research (George Wiseman) in cooperation with Being Unlimited (Tenaj DaCosta Wiseman) are in the initial stages of creating their ultimate dream. They envision a world-renowned educational energy centre designed to find, develop and harness the unique genius inside each of us. The centre will be open to all sorts of creative-thinkers in their respective fields: inventors; writers; healing arts practitioners; feng shui specialists; architects; illustrators; horticulturalists; fitness experts… www.eagle-research.com

George Wiseman is available for a limited number of speaking engagements each year. For consideration of your next event, FAX details to Eagle-Research, at least three months in advance.
