Arthur Lee Heglar (February 10, 1870 - August 17, 1914) was an American physician and inventor who patented several mechanisms for motors, and was reported in 1898 while resident at Oakesdale, Whitman Co., Washington to have "perfected plans" for what he called a "gravity engine," a so-called perpetual motion machine.

  • GB189822195A. Improvements in Mechanism for Converting Pressure into Motion at Right Angles to the Direction thereof. 1898. "In a mechanical movement, the combination of a rocker mounted upon a supporting-surface and provided at points remote from the point of bearing upon said supporting-surface with spaced bearing-points, a wedge-shaped converting lever disposed in the interval between said spaced bearing-points with its opposite rearwardly-divergent bearing faces respectively in contact with the bearing points, and a plunger upon said converting-lever at a point in rear of the spaced bearing-points and in front of the bearing-point of the rocker upon the supporting-surface, substantially as specified."
  • US947908A. Speed-Multiplying Mechanism for Motors. 1 Feb. 1910, filed 6 Mar. 1909. "The object of the invention is to simplify the speed multiplying mechanism and to so construct the same as to avoid all tendency of the parts to become distorted and displaced, this result being obtained by equalizing the resistance to which the various power-transmitting elements are subjected, the mean line of resistance extending straight through the longitudinal center of the speed multiplying mechanism."
