How much Cost-a wheel? Well according to JLN labs mailing list, the inventor, Aldo Costa, is selling it for 2,000,000 Francs or there about. I have only ever seen photos of it at a distance, they revealed little about it's mechanism, to be totally 'franc' the detailed pictures on your web page reveal little more about it. Keely net were discussing Costa's wheel on their discussion board under the posting 'eurowheel', here is some interesting information gleamed from 'eurowheel':
1.John Collins at some point made arangements to go to France and see the wheel, I do not know any more than this, mabey you could ask him for details? (If he saw it that is)
2.The wheel rotates VERY slowly, half a revolution every other minuit, or something of that nature.
I thought that I would include this additional information, as the Costa wheel has the potential to provide a real demonstration of a principle that could turn out to be a modern day Bessler wheel.
I wounder why people are not taking a greater interest in it?
