Air Suction Drives Machine (Aug, 1937)

Eight horse-power? That guy can really suck!

Air Suction Drives Machine

CONSISTING principally of four main wheels, three of which are nearly five feet in diameter and one-foot thick, a novel perpetual motion machine driven by air suction is claimed to have been invented by G. W. Johnston, of Tulsa, Okla.

Valves and other wheels are assembled inside the main wheel, each of which turns on a hollow axle. A turn of the wheel produces an air current at one end of the axle and suction at the other end, serving to keep the machine in motion. A small unit of the device, an eight-pound cylinder, can create eight horsepower under a 100-pound air pressure according to the inventor.

    I’ll hold off on the flurry of jokes my diseased mind is sending me, and only point out that a machine that needs suction to keep running is hardly a perpetual motion device.
