How To Build A Bedini Motor Series ~ The Rotor Frame

This is the fourth article in the series How To Build A Bedini SSG (Simplified School Girl) motor. Today we are going to cover the frame which holds it all together.


A Bedini SSG is a pulse motor which has the ability to restore badly sulfated lead acid batteries using high voltage pulses. There are some special effects when using the Bedini motor though such as battery conditioning (gaining power) and the ability to charge up multiple batteries on the back end.

Today I went out into my off grid wood shop and built my new Bedini motor frame using some scrap lumber I had laying around.



Building Bedini SSG Motor Frame


You can build your frame using plastic, wood, acrylic or anything else that is not magnetically conductive.




For this device I am using a bicycle wheel for a rotor. A bike wheel can take up a lot of real estate when placed in a horizontal position so I deciced to build mine vertically.


You can choose which design suits you best. But consider the future when building your frame. Do you plan to expand your device later on and attempt to power your home? Do you just want a simple battery desulfator with the basic Bedini circuits? Or do you want a mix of the two?


It is better to build your Bedini SSG with this idea already in mind.

The type of wheel you use as a rotor will also help determine the orientation of your device. A large bike wheel, as mentioned, takes up a lot of space on the work bench so vertical seems best. A lawn mower, skate board or other small wheel can be placed horizontally so that you can later add more coils around it if you desire.


You may choose to use a bicycle wheel and place your rotor in a horizontal position, allowing you to add a lot more coils later with ease. Or you may use a large piece of plywood backing like I did with my big bike wheel Bedini motor. At one time I had three large triple wire coils on this device with plans to expand and add more.


Sadly this machine got damaged in a move and I never did get working on it again.


Now that you have decided how you want to build your Bedini motor, there are a couple more points to consider.


When building the frame or box, allow room for expansion. Under my bike wheel, I had to ensure that I had enough space to move the coil up or down as much as an inch or so. This will allow me to fine tune the device later on.


Also remember the magnets when building your frame and allow for their thickness.


When I built the side legs I had to take these points into consideration. It is better to build too large and need to put wood blocks or spacers under the coil than to build too small and have to do it all over again later.


You can get all fancy and build a very beautiful acrylic frame like the Quanta Magnetics Q3 Charge Accelerator which I have sitting on my work bench. I have seen some Bedini motors built in this way.


Have fun with it.
