I've never built one, but it's a simple enough circuit, with info found all over the web. Here are some details if it helps. This is Bajak specific, his original writings and correspondence. The text schematic won't show up correctly, so a crudely drawn schematic is at the end of the post.
The flux capacitor
This is the basic design for John Bajaks Flux Capacitor. It was designed for use with a car because of the variable pulse generated from the cars engine outputed via the motor coil termanals, and the motional conductive mass of the cars hull. The values for the parts are as follows:
MC\PG = motor coil or pulse generator
R1 = 15 Ohms ( I replaced this with two 8 Ohm 50 watt Stereo pots. seems to work well as long as you dont bring the value past 15 Ohms.)
R2 = 1meg 10w
C1 = 1215 mf 250 v ( just add a bunch of caps together till you get the right value unless of course you have one of these laying around.)
Q1 = Piezo Buzzer (part num. 273-073 at Radio Shack.)
the directions for use are as follows:
S2 Closed = forwards in time
S2 Open = backward in time
R1 = Past time speed - the more resistance the faster you move through time
R2 = Future time speed - the less resistance the faster you move through time
B1 27 volt source
C1 1200 uF 50V electrolytic
P1 piezoelectric transducer (value uncritical)
S1 charging switch (SPST)
G1 25-ohm rheostat (future control)
G2,G3 switch (SPST) and 1M-ohm potentiometer for past control
< Transcriber's note: I don't know whether G1 and G2 are really supposed
to be a rheostat and a potentiometer, or both rheostats, or both pots. He
refers to two rheostats elsewhere, and I was just going to call them pots
until I remembered that rheostats would have some inductance. >

Dear Mr. xxxxxx:
Enjoy. In summary, to time travel is sort of like constructing a nuclear bomb
-but instead of needing critical _mass_, one needs critical _energy_ to "break
the time barrier". That energy is 1215.9 microfarads. Play around with it.
With batteries installed,
Depress switch for 3 to 4 seconds,
Release for 3 to 4 seconds;
Repeat as necessary.
Point transducer output toward the person or thing you want changed.

THE 911 BEGINNING
It was a hot summer, needless to say, and I survived by the skin of my teeth;
a minute of miracle and wonder.
You see, I had just built an electroshock machine made of batteries, a
capacitor, and a switch.
But, just by change, the monday after Andrew Dice Clay on Saturday Night Live,
I decided to attach to the leads of the machine a piezoelectric crystal (which
is a piece of computer equipment that buzzes).
The air turned funny when I pressed the button. I could see and feel an
effect I can only describe as an electrical and subliminally acoustical roller
coaster. At first it gave me headaches. I brought it to Sir Costa's Pizza
Cafe where I used to work and sprayed their foyer. It worked for them too; it
gave them a headache.
More sooner than later, I noticed time stretched thinner and thinner until I
noticed time seemed to stop while it was turned on. This took place in clocks
I watched on my VCR and a German-made clock given to me by my father. I
noticed time seemed to decelerate after a certain period of turnon, then
accelerate when the button was turned off, according to the changing pattern
of the capacitor.
Then I realized for what it was: a flux capacitor. I then, during wednesday
and thursday, wrote how it could be attached to any internal combustion
engine, and how in a static frame could be extremely dangerous. It could be
used for _time_ _travel_.
That friday I realized that the future was probably where Deborah Poe went
(she had disappeared from a circle K convenience store nearby months previous)
for I had participated in the Search for her at the Mall and had reported to
the lieutenant I had seen a UFO that Monday Morning she disappeared on an
early morning walk. The circumstances around her disappearance was
mysterious, as she left her purse and car keys behind. Deborah Poe was an
aspiring yuppie, earning money for a house of her own.
Too much began happening. I was a pure clock-filter of information. What
happened Friday after the invention freqked me out. I found myself calling
dozens of phone numbers, talking in understanding with the people on the other
end, and getting working answers back.
Eventually, by Sunday night/monday morning, and 911 rescue calls more than 7
times in a period of five hours, and they getting more and more excited (my
saying what I had invented and they kicking me upstairs) they told me to lie
down and get some sleep. I did, and the TV exploded, which had been turned
First it started talking to me, threatening me that it would stop time if I
didn't call 911 again. It spoke a command - LAUGH OFF - then exploded. I
felt myself burning, lying on the couch with my back to the tv, but there were
no flames. Then the tv reassembled itself and the flames stopped. I checked
my papers on the floor and they weren't even singed. I called 911 again and
they kicked me upstairs twice. They said the sheriff was outside. I ran out
yelling "sheriff! sheriff! I was freaked out.
He was there. It was a late-model Cutlass Sierra by Chrystler, licence BCK
312. He was heavily outfitted, and the car was about 17 feet long, longer
than the standard 15 feet, and wider.
He requested backup. He was covering a disturbance in an apartment nearby.
Another, just as big police car drove up in about fifteen to twenty seconds.
A cop and a "student cop" wearing a police academy t-shirt came out. They
came in the apartment and inspected. They told me to go back to sleep. I
tried, but for some reason, I got dressed and took the flux capacitor to the
Mall, which by this time was fully flossed by the molybdemum-like smell of the
flossy chemical ignition, and the Police Inspector along with the student Cop,
inspected it -made me disassemble it (take off the cover) reassemble it, then
he told me to fo home and go back to sleep.
The next morning, astounded by what happened, called 911 to ask if I should go
to the hospital. I had gotten used to calling 911. This time they came right
away, and took me to Florida North Psychiatric Hospital.

Dear Chaplain Cooley:
I am writing to ask you to help clarify the events that happened to me June 1,
1990. You are the name I remember throughout that whole day. My father, RADM
Sigmund Bajak asked the Orlando Navy Base to help take care of me until he
I remember a security officer, you, a minister's son, the head Chaplain and a
female chaplain, all of whom took good care of me when I was feeling anxious.
You may be interested to know that I have moved up North. I have a volunteer
job and receive disability, and I am doing well.
Back to June 1st. In my memory, I remember the reasons I was anxious: Number
one was owing my father seven hundred dollars. I was not being able to talk
with him about this debt for a month because he was in Poland; Two, a feeling
that I had invented a flux capacitor. This is a foundation for time travel,
but I did not have a car to try it out.
Finally, there were two more events I experienced that morning - these
included a truck which seemed to be spraying the mall at a high rate of speed
with a perfumy chemical which ignited, and a television program carrying a
1995 copyright which appeared on my home TV screen during a time in the
morning when the station was supposed to be off-the-air.
These June 1st anxieties made me lose all common sense and I am now trying to
sort out my memories of that day to determine which events really happened. I
am asking if you could reply with your observations of what happened to me
while I was with you. Specifically,I remember that the President called the
Chaplain's office immediately prior to the time that I went to the Protestant
I clearly remember the secretary there coming to brisk attention from a seated
position and saying, "Yes, Mr. President" and then listening intently and then
following his instructions, making other phone calls.
Thank you in advance for your reply which I hope will include reference to the
June morning happenings described above. It is most important that you tell
me what you observed during the seven hours I was with you.
< Another letter, written December 2, 1990, omitted. Possibly relevant
information includes a reference to traveling back to September 9, 1981 and
meeting a woman who he hopes to meet again in about ten years. (Strange that
the Montauk story also includes a 20-year cycle.) Also, a claim of writing a
letter to the Navy on October 22 and reading it on the prior June 4th. Also a
reference to "some time mess in Central America" about May of 1990, and
officials from the region meeting with him to discuss it. An admonition to
always take popcorn with you on time trips as an offering of friendship. >
< Next, an essay on the social impact of time travel. Finally, his theory of
time travel physics. >
Time travel has long been within the realm of science fiction. It is also
true that what Man can imagine must usually can be done, although not without
effort. Experiment and theory lead to the same conclusion: time travel is not
only possible, but easily practical. The definition of time itself relates to
the physical value Love, measured in mass-seconds. Time is viewed not as a
dimension in a continuum, but as a wave of Love arising from the light plane.
Time travel is achieved by "surfing" like on an ocean beach to the edge of
where love has been disturbed. The frame of reference of an inertial system
is reduced to change in each of three physical dimensions as happening
throughout the continuum.
1. The universe as we know it is based on physical quantity "love".
2. Love is indivisible.
Proposition a: Love limits communication
Proposition b: Love is infinitely accessible
Proposition c: Love is finitely variable
Proposition d: A point in the universe is an arc in love-explained space/time
F(P) = ((f(t), delta t, 1/t))
Where a recursive arc usually felt as time is expressed as
delta t = 1/t, or t (t -t ) = 1/t where x = F(t)
X A B
Defining Love as mass in time, one gram in one second = 1 unit of Love, 1 unit
of love = 1 hubert, we have the expression
L = mt
Knowing work = energy / time, energy = mass * speedoflight ,
wt = (L*c )/t
wt = Lvc
Energy is equivalent to mass, energy defined as amplification (work from time
= 0) and mass as love on a light plane.
Amplification of mass on a light plane can be construed as the state of
calculation (amplification) equalling the state of communication (light plane)
In an empty space, capacitance, the ability to hold charge, necessarily is
amplified mass. Recursive arcs of capacitance in Love theory are necessary;
normally called resonance.
Capacitance = time constant / resonance
Time is a wave arising from the light plane.
The solution to an individual time wave is
C = TC / RC
To find C as R goes to zero and C goes to C in this

< graph showing the intersection of a bell-shaped curve labeled resonance
and a hyperbolic curve labeled time constant >
Quartz, which has the property of negative inductance (in which mass moves in
response to charge and vice-versa), when charge pulsed into a time resonant
capacitor, "surfs" the time landscape, like a surfer in the sea, carrying mass
in its wave along with it. Normal time, not having time resonant negative
inductance, continues in appearance of a continuum, like the general theory of
U = (x,y,z,t)
This has been proven in experiment wherein a quartz piezoelectric crystal has
been placed in parallel circuit with a capacitance of time resonance (1214.9
uF) and given DC pulses. At a voltage of 9 volts and 1/2 second pulse
frequency and ten second duration, the home clock has been pushed forward
within the time field one second as compared with an away clock five feet
away. This experiment has been duplicated three times at different voltages
and distances. Generally, the higher the voltage, the higher the surf.
