Nathan Helms Storms[i] (April 3, 1870 - March 14, 1933) was an American carpenter and mechanic who newspapers reported in 1922 had claimed to have "perfected a machine which closely approaches perpetual motion." The Storm machine was described as being able to drive a shaft for up to five years without interruption, requiring no fuel, only oil for lubrication.
