In my case it was a small PM motor. Far from a cinvincing 
demonstration of Tesla's dream however. I used a second resonator a 
few feet away on a stainless bench, loop a few turns around its 
belly, and rectified and smoothed the output. Cute little demo but I 
wasn't about to proclaim a world first and the limits of its 
applicability were obvious.
