If this is just a hobby project, go for it. If it is for a purpose you are nuts. By the time you buy all the parts needed, machine shop work, casting iron and magnet wire, you can buy buy one for much less and get a warranty too.

J. V., have you visited my site yet? I have so far not had a need for any machine shop work done. I don't intend to. The main purpose of the motor is to show how a person using his head can build anything he wants. I also own a "89" Jeep Cherokee. It takes work to keep this vehicle running good. I could buy a brand new one with a warranty, but I don't want to go into debt paying for a brand new gas-guzzler when I already own one.And you have to pay for a warranty thats worth about as much as the paper its written on. I'll have a lot more pride in my homemade motor than a shiny new one that has to have paper back it up.

This is a pretty neat project. I do this kind of stuff myself as well. (Just for the fun of doing)

I wish more people would get off of the couch and do something constructive! Good for you!

Right now lets say its a fun project. Addicting is more like it.I do plan to use what I've learned during this project to build another, to one day power a EV. Even if this motor can only power a camp fan off a 12V car battery I can say I made it myself.

I still say he's nuts. But since it is a hobby and not meant to power some important equipment, hats off to him. My wife cannot even get me to replace a light switch, so you can see where I am coming from. Good luck OP!
