I have designed and built a device that harnesses centrifugal force.The power output is in the form of(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

2 x 10mm steel rod "pistons" that move up and down a distance of 15mm. I have measured the weight these pistons can lift to be 122lbs when the device is operated @ 4000rpm. Each piston moves up and down once per revolution. I have calculated this to be an output of 1.45 hp. ( 15mm=.049125ft x 66.666 times per second=3.27496 ft x 122lbs = 399.54 lbs/ft/sec = .7264hp x 2 = 1.45hp. Can people please either confirm my calculations are correct or point out my error(s).

If I am correct,given that the device is solely powered by a 500w electric drill, am I able to claim the impossible?
