Thank you for your comment!I think it would be interesting to look at other shapes. However, as the pyramid shape is most often found in literature It seemed like a good starting point (starting the experiment not expecting a difference). However, if at some point there would be reliable proof for pyramid energy, then I would certainly like to see the effect of different shapes. Knowing the golden ratio to be a fundamental part of the pyramid geometry, it can also be intersting to look at icosahedrons / dodecahedrons, as they are closely related to the golden ratio as well.
I can imagine! Here in the Netherlands they don't sell good bar clamps, so I'm planning to make some as well. Did you experience bending in the end plate near the handle (with the nut in it), it seems like it could possibly bend when applying a lot of clamping pressure?
Homemade Bar Clamps
Thank you! That is a really clever solution with the threaded rod on the back. The best DIY bar clamps I have seen so far!
Well, but apparently you have to be a scientist to be curious enough to think about phenomena that other people just debunk based on what they think, instead of looking at facts.
Thank you for sharing the intersting reads. However, they don't seem to prove pyramid energy does not exist. To prove it does not exist one also needs to do experiments, however when starting with the idea that it does not exsist, I don't think anyone will do the experiment carefully and in a controlled way.
Thank you for your comment!I completely agree. As this instructable is written after my experiment, of course it is biased. However, when starting the experiment, I did not believe a pyrmaid should or could have any influence on the results. I think it is most important to at least start the experiment being open for whatever restult comes out. Starting an experiment to prove it does not exist can never work. Why would you do it carefully if you don't want it to work...?
