Torsion generator manufactured by Alexander A. Shpilman, of Kazakhstan


According to Russian* papers, a new property of space is said to be the torsion field. A general introduction this subject is found at Vacuum Spin Fields

The generator pictured above is described as the Generator Axion (Spin) Field With Use of Vectorial Potential of a Spiral Structure, or the "generator described in N2_96". It was purchased from Mr Alexander Shpilman for $US230.

Although provided with instructions for the healing modification of the aura, this generator is also said to be capable of altering the surface hardness of plain carbon steels by up to 35%. See Outcomes of experiment on study of influence of effect of Axion radiation on hardness of metal. In this experiment, plain carbon steels with varying proportions of carbon content were subjected to the field of the generator. The test results indicate surface hardening and softening effects due to axion radiation emitted by the generator.

A first attempt to duplicate this effect was made during January 2000. The highest value of plain carbon steel I was able to obtain commercially was 1045 steel from ASSAB Steels in 30mm bar. This contains 0.45% carbon. Plain carbon steels above this value are generally not commercially usable and must be obtained by special order.

The testing was performed at Metlabs AMEC Engineering Pty Ltd, Arden St North Melbourne. The metallurgical engineer declined to test cast iron, stating that due to its nodular composition micro hardness testing of this material would be unreliable. According to the engineer the use of weights for microhardness testing under 100g are also considered by him to be unreliable. Thus all tests were done with a 100g weight. Six tests were made prior to irradiation, and a further six tests after irradiation. For microhardness testing, the sample is set into a block of plastic material and polished.

The rotor of the torsion generator I have is slightly out of balance, and if clamped to a stand causes vibration. Therefore the generator was suspended from its power cord on a stand above the sample. The distance between the end of the rotor and the sample was 1.5cm, and the time of irradiation was 8 minutes. The slotted cowling of the generator was removed to facilitate lining up of the rotor with the centre of the sample.

The device used was a Shimadzu type M microhardness tester. The test results were as follows:

Vickers Microhardness values:

Before irradiation:  201 191 191 192 197 189

After irradiation:     187 188 193 188 196 186

The test report is provided. Mr Shpilman has provided the following comments:

Average hardness of steel before an irradiation = 193,5.
Average hardness of steel after an irradiation = 189,7.
Error of measurement ~ 1%.
The hardness has decreased on 2%.

After an irradiation the hardness of low carbon steel (C=0.08%) decreased 6-8%. After an irradiation of high carbon steel (C=0.8%) the hardness was increased by 35 % At some value of concentration of carbon (between these two points) the hardness will not vary. At concentration C=0.45% changes in hardness would appear close to a zero point.

An attempt is currently being made to procure a 0.8% plain carbon steel sample.
