    Hey guys I'm doing this project to keep my mind off my other 100 projects.
    The basic idea is to take lots of DC motors, 1 On a platform in the center.
    Lots of motor will be placed on the edge of the platform with gears/pulleys
    This device will have A 9v bat rechargeable with a POT to adjust the main motor speed with a resistor to reduce the charging current.

    This will initially spin the gears or pulleys connected on however many motors i can fit.
    then switch off the power to run itself.
    My goal is to reach 12v and power my 400w inverter for hobby desk

    I have 8 motors I got from DVD players and other electronics.

    if any one wants to donate some motors and gears or pulleys let me know
    let me know.

    I suggest you focus on your other projects. ;)

    Trying to violate the laws of thermodynamics is not a good use of anyone's time. Such topics are not allowed here.

    Perpetual Motion is impossible.

    Connect the shafts of two motors together and connect their wires so that one motor is a generator and the other motor spins when it is powered. Then spin the shafts for a moment.

    How long does the generator keep the motor running? 2 seconds before they stop?
    They stop but they do not even have a load. If they had a load then they stop quicker.

    Why do they stop?
    Why can't the generator generate enough power to keep the motor running?

    Losses. The electricity in the motors heats them up which wastes a lot of the power produced by ther generator. Friction also wastes power.

    Why do you waste your time (the sole asset nobody can replace)?

    Many have tried this before you. And have they had any success. No not at all. Bottom line. You can not take some amount of energy and use that to create a larger amount of energy. So for your own sake. Drop all kind of energy amplifying projects. And focus on more down to earth projects
