Once again AlFigmoStud has presented us with a link to that cesspool of racism and conspiracy theory 'b i t c h u t e', forgetting that the BHO considers that we are too delicate to see a common term for a female dog. Replace the asterisks with 'itch' and you'll be fine.

I'd want to know that the 1st machine will sit there and run "forever" all by itself with no generator belt attached.

Exactly. And the laws of physics insist that it will not. To say nothing of the added friction of the bearings, the kinetic energy lost by a generator under load, and several other issues.

And no way to replace the main bearing w/o major surgery

Ha!! Free energy generator???  The guy's 'way late to the party. 

I haven't personally verified this, or the actual process, but a bit of family lore [well, truth be told, my family by marriage] ... an uncle who was a qualified electrician apparently occasionally reversed a couple of the main feeds at the meter, and it ran backward .... i.e. current reading less than previous one.   This was several decades ago, so meters/technology are different, and ...... ??? ... but it sounds as close to "free energy" as most of us riff-raff will ever come.

We have examples of "perpetual motion" from tides,wind,gravity,core heat and solar.
We can tap into these resources and never deplete them.

Absolute clickbait. Perpetual motion is impossible and those who believe this is possible need an education. Look up conservation of energy.

 Or the laws of thermodynamics.

Tides and wind are largely driven by solar.  The earth's core heat dissipates.  Gravity is a force, not a motion.  And the sun will eventually die.

It's true that we won't "deplete" them in our lifetimes, but they are decidedly not "perpetual motion".

The vibration of the frame is the clearest indication that this machine will not work.

He put perpetual in quotes because he understood that he wasn't using it in the exact sense, removing the need to be pedantic. :)

What this Rube Goldberg contraption is trying to make is called perpetual motion. A fallacy akin to the Flint mobile of the 60s sitcom The Flintstones.
