Acceptable Suppliers of Genuine Edgar Cayce Radial Appliances

If the Association for Research and Enlightenment’s “Official Supplier”  makes a questionable version of Edgar Cayce’s Radial Appliance, what is a seeker to do?

It is possible to make your own Radial Appliance. I heard that the A.R.E.’s bookstore in Virginia Beach used to have supplies, but I haven’t ever visited their business. I exchanged emails with an aspiring Appliance builder in/near Russia regarding a few specific details of Radial Appliance construction. He wrote back a few months later to say that he’d successfully built his own Appliance.

David McMillin has a nice book about his Radial Appliance R&D project. This book offers suppliers for each of the components.

Complete Appliances are available from these builders:

  • Tom Hildebrand calls his version of Cayce’s Radio-Active Appliance the Ice Appliance.
  • Phil Thomas calls his version of Cayce’s Radio-Active Appliance the Radial Device.
  • James Knochel sells assembled Radial Appliances, as well as kits that purchasers can assemble on their own.

While there are difference between our versions of Edgar Cayce’s device, we aspire to adhere to Mr. Cayce’s instructions, even when they are not as convenient as we might like. Furthermore, we all stick to Cayce’s basic formula: Carbon Steel, plate Carbon, masking tape, and charcoal.

    It is nice to see that alternative suppliers exist for those who want their services. Because we do not fully understand the operating principles behind Mr. Cayce’s appliances, and his instructions are the only authoritative guide we have, cutting corners or making substitutions of materials with cheaper ones could have unanticipated adverse reactions. These spiritual devices aren’t toys. If they can do good, misapplied, they can do harm. We as consumers are often naïve and place a great deal of trust in the integrity of suppliers. If suppliers wish to manufacture a device with a plastic core or other deviations and sell them, they should be allowed to do so, but only if they inform prospective customers of the variations from Mr. Cayce’s instructions so buyers can make an informed decision for themselves based on reason, not an appeal to authority.

  2. Although it is no longer shiny like new, I love my copper Ice Appliance made by Tom Hildebrand and have been using it happily for 20 years. It’s a hunk of metal and wires, but I’ve developed fond feelings for the little guy. I believe Mr. Hildebrand makes his devices with the highest integrity according to Mr. Cayce’s own instructions, so there were no worries about it being filled with plastic or carbon steel that didn’t match specs, etc. The removable wires with banana plugs are convenient for daily storage. I replaced the wires and discs only once after ten years of regular use, which is reasonable. One of these sturdy things will easily last a lifetime. Most people use it a couple times out of curiosity and then quit because they don’t feel anything. But if you stick with it and use it regularly, it’s worth every penny.
