I’ve been kicking around this project for months – I actually wanted to build this before I built the Three Dial, but I’m glad now I waited, as I applied what I learned in the Three Dial construction and was able to make improvements.
The tuning circuit is essentially the same as the Three Dial, but with double the number of tuning pots. I also decided to incorporate an Octagon Loop Antenna into the lid of the box itself, rather than it being a stand alone construction on its own mast. It is also an active device with an built-in VHF radio amplifier circuit, and the Clear (neutralize) function incorporates a large toroidal degaussing coil and the same ultraviolet “sterilization” lamps as my Hieronymus Machine.
This image shows the circuits and internal wiring. On the “input” side of each tuning potentiometer is a wire-wound quartz crystal (eight turns), and like the Three Dial, I used terminal strips to make the wiring neater, and also allow repairs to be made more easily, if needed. The potentiometers are all high quality, sealed, wire wound components. (I like using wire wound pots because inside each one is a small loop!)
The RF amplifier circuit can be seen (edge-on) to the right of the witness well. The well is wound with 24 turns of magnet wire, sealed with vinyl tape. The first UV lamp is mounted under the well, the second one is mounted on a post over the tuning crystals. Activating the “Clear” switch powers up the degaussing coil and turns on the UV lamps, switching out the tuning pots.
I was concerned about connecting the antenna directly to the control panel, as I didn’t want the cables to get entangled in the antenna wires when the lid is closed (which I wouldn’t find out about until I opened the lid and tore something loose!) Also I wanted to use the antenna for both input and output, and a direct connection would require another switch. So I decided to mount the cables on the lid, with banana plugs to connect it to either the input or output of the machine as needed. When not in use, the cables are stowed by plugging into (dummy) banana jacks built into the lid. In the center of the antenna loop is a octagonal half-dome of gold orgonite.
The switches control Transmit (activates the RF amplifier), Clear, and “Dual Mode”, which separates the “chain” of tuning pots from six in a series into two banks of three dials each. This allows the machine to be used for “Trend+Target” settings as needed. Each switch has its own indicator lamp to show the setting.
The positive poles of the Input and Output are connected to quartz crystal coils to amplify the scalar emanations, and those crystals are mounted in the top panel with one half sticking out above the surface. Underneath each one is mounted a red LED lamp that lights up when the “Transmit” switch is on. (Yeah, just because I thought it looked cool.) I’ve found some old radionics texts that include the use of light for tuning, and red supposedly boosts energy.
The witness well is the same design as used in Hieronymus Machines, which is something that seems to be uncommon in “resistance dial” radionics devices, which usually use flat plates of metal. I’ve always preferred the well-type design – something placed in it like a photograph or a sigil on paper is prevented from being accidentally knocked off or blown away by air currents. The stick pad is also of the same design as the Hieronymus Machine, using a touch plate of Bakelite (paper bond) with a flat, eight-turn bifilar coil mounted beneath it.
The case is a simple pinewood box I found at a thrift store, well made with mortised joints. It was nice wood, so I felt it was a shame to simply paint it solid black, even though I wanted it to be a “black box.” So I finished it with ebony stain, and added the classic trunk corners. It has brass “stop hinges” that allow the lid to remain upright when opened without having to use chains or lid levers (which would get in the way of the input and output connections.)
I’m very happy with how it came out. I dialed up a basic scan (using the stick pad and a lock of my own hair in the witness well) for my own bio-energy level, using the first three dials in Dual Mode. I got a strong stick reaction, similar to what I feel with the Hieronymus while tuning it. Then I set the second three dials to balance those settings (using the simple subtraction method: e.g, a setting of “23” on the input dial is balanced by a setting of “77” on the output dial.) After a few minutes running, I could feel my body’s energy being increased and refined, so it seems to be working as it should.
However, while the Hieronymus Machine is generally designed for healing, this box is intended for manifestation work. I expect I’ll be using it quite a bit in the near future!
