Don not sure where I salvaged these motors. Things like that I tend to hang onto.


Thanks Tom
Well getting down to the finish but I did have a error some where. The wire guide I made from a hypodermic needle and some spring steel but ended up to long and would be to close to the spool. So I need to shorten it and I also missed the feed hole in the one side plate.
Once I get those errors fixed I'll get the counter mounted and the motor and I'll be ready for a trial run.

Thanks Don!

Getting close to the first coil wind and we will see if I end up with a usable coil or not. Always wanted to try this so it will be new to me. I'll need to build a vacuum chamber for it next.

Pretty much done withe the side winder did fix the control to be standard.
 
Made a broach rod for broaching the square hole in the spools. Now on to the vacuum impregnation chamber then I will give it a try.

Looks good Doc just waiting to see you wound a coil with it. I have one of those speed control I think I paid $14 for it. On the speed pot just reverse the two outer wires to get it the right direction.

If I get my ignition system finished for my hoglet I'm building I may try and wind up a coil. I have gotten a plan together for the vacuum chamber to impregnate the coil with wax. But first I want to get to the last thing to do on the hoglet which will be the carb.
