The main winding was of the normal lotus-o-delta type placed in panendermic semi-boloid slots of the stator, every seventh conductor being connected by a non-reversible termie pipe to the differential girdle spring on the “up” end of the grammies.

The ejcabulator winding was of the normal lotus-o-deltoid type placed in panendermic semi-boloid slots in turgo stator, every seventh conductor being connected by a nonreversible tremmie pipe to the differential girdlespring on the “up” end of the grammeters. Here is the Bud Haggart transcript of the video: This video is a humorous way of gently reminding everyone to minimize jargon.


The prototype of the machine has a base-plate of prefabulated amulite, surmounted by a malleable logarithmic casing in such a way that the two spurving bearings are in a direct line with the pentametric fan.

Many attempts have been made since this first video was shot to replicate the deadpan humor and technical babble of the original but as the description notes: Now basically the only new principle involved is that instead of power being generated by the relative motion of conductors and fluxes, it is produced by the modial interaction of magneto-reluctance and capacitive diractance.

Discussion threads can be closed at any time at our discretion. The original machine had a base plate of prefabulated aluminite, surmounted by a malleable logarithmic casing in such a way that the two main spurving bearings were in a direct line with the pentametric fan.
