    Don't worry- you'll get a job some day and instead of a Perpetual Energy Machine you'll be working on a Perpetual Tax Deduction Machine- but that don't work either 'cause you'll just get taxed on the machine as a company asset.

    Go ride yer bike and chase girls.

    This is the law of dimenishing returns. Eventually you will continually dimenish to zero. Kinda like Vegas and a slot machine, they average 93% return.

    No free power, unfortunately.

    Default i am definatly a weldor

    i got to reading about perpetual motion saw something about laws of thermodynamics and imediatly thoght of thermaldynamics plasma cutters

    Yo, kid, before you go further with this, how about reading:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perpetual_motion

    When I was your age I had a bunch of the same ideas, then I discovered what perpetual motion is all about. So, go read up on this subject and then get back and let us know what you've learned. I'm about 5 decades older than you and every day I'm learning something new - so, get on board to what life's all about and use this as a learning opportunity.

    It's your turn - show us your stuff - and impress us with what you learn about perpetual motion and tell us why your air compressor idea will not work.

    By the way: you'll impress us even more if you start spelling words correctly (and, with a spell checker there is no excuse not to spell correctly).

    I'm looking forward to your next post.

    Default Keep up the thinking

    I can see you going far in life ,maybe not on your perpetual motion machine but maybe on somthing with a very very low carbon .print. Some people have been doing it for thousands of years.

The compressor would have to be compressed the first time though anaxilary source, but if the tank doesnt leak it can alwase produce all of the power i needs. the impact would be tunrned on and off by means of a ball valve
    there so is a lot if inifomation about every thing here. but you forgot to mention that a inpact gun doen't work like an electrice motor. it needs more resitance and would not run a compressor.

    when it came to designing this i was just looking at impacts in a northern tool book and saw the specs and thought that runnng an air compressor off it would increase performance after a few of you posted I read up on perpetual motion and discovered i would have to make it vibration free so it produces no sound energy, prevent the transfer and production of heat, and have it all sealed in a vacuum to prevent friction with the air which also mean that it would be even harder to do with a car or lawnmower.

    MTbob-I did read the wikepidia link,
