Tesla's thermomagnetic motor in operation

The above sequence shows how Tesla's motor operates. As the gas flame heats the nickel, a point is reached when the attraction to the alnico magnet is cancelled. A weak spring pulls the arm and nickel away from the flame. When the nickel cools, the magnetic attraction is restored and the nickel returns to its original position. This oscillation should be at a rate of about 20 strokes per minute. Be careful not to heat the magnet.
