My early experimental Spiductor work in the 1980s - Woven baskets were used as bases and as conceptual visualization for some of the effects observed. Daring to put inspiration before standard scientific procedure alone, I did "wind" many variations on coil and sphere themes, (beginnings of coil research pages, here). Later I tested them all with my 100MHz Textronics scope (bought from a surplus vendor in MA).
Later still, in the 1990s I began to study 3d solid geometry CAD (formZ). After a difficult, self-educated learning curve, on a small contractor's income, I gradually mastered CAD funding myself on the small wage levels in Maine. Also due to my artistic reputation, wages were low. My dear mother followed me to her retirement in Maine, around 1980. In sort of an unplanned exchange, i fixed up her cape house (now for sale). Disallowed by me to, pay me a wage, she gladly started off my non profit, 503c corporation on $10K, (which was about the value of work i rendered on her house, at comparable wage levels). I never found an avenue to pursue this work at a funded level. So It pretty much was limited to my surplus time, especially in Maine winters.
My primary focus came to be electrical resonance up to low rf frequency ranges.... My primary observations were harmonic resonance waveforms. I largely set up my experiments as inductive resonance effects of the coils. I felt the research had great potentials, but it was difficult to proceed with the focus due to my self-sufficient demands of my time. Also, my wife kept wanting me to try varied income adventures, none of which produced more than basic labor wages. Banks would never loan me dime, because banks, as a matter of normal policy, only want indentured servants, realistically speaking. My actual income was too small and to sporadic to qualify as a good, indentured servant, even though we had a mortgage-paid-off-house worth more than my requested business loans. Water under the bridge. I found thrills with lots of speculation about lightning and atmospheric electrical charge, as i built a large Tesla inspired lightning dissipater (or protector), integral with my green-house dome (of 42 ft diameter, in 1980).
I always focused my web work on struggling artist stuff, to promote my skills. I spent too little time with my higher dreams like this. I actually had many great designs to carry out and am quite sure that even some of my early 3d computer derived 3d geometry could build some potent inductors, by use of rp (rapid prototyping) except that conductive materials combined with insulating materials are hard to come by from those sorts of service bureaus. Here are some early models. These are a bit complex for human hand crafting as well. Ultimately and perhaps ironically, as well, my best income has actually come from wedding work, however. Who would guess that an Atkinson who wanted to work with earth and stone would go that route? My grand dad helped get Guy F. Atkinson started many decades ago, back in the days of mule-teams and as an older brother. (Grand dad died young, in a construction-associated-accident. He was inspecting his company's work progress for safety, and fell, developing a fatal hernia). Well, mom always wanted to be an artist herself, but got caught up raising a family as the chief bread winner, (her career with the FAO in Rome, Italy, for around 30 years. She actually had worked her way through college during the Great Depression. Yet women were not promoted in those days, despite her excellent abilities in the economic section of FAO and later, after getting a special additional degree, as staff councilor in her later career at FAO). Dad simply tried very hard to adjust his book for publication, but his publisher kept pushing him away from his better skills as a WWII journalist.
Hire me, Bo Atkinson.
