that is the most enthusiastic person I ever heard in my life. Also,
bullshit music. I got my own music if I want to listen to music, not your
melancholic/depressive bullshit music that makes it hard to understand what
you're saying. It's already hard enough as it is to understand what you're
saying. drink 3 liters of coffee next time before making a video

why the music, and why country??? good video though

Very interesting and varied field of work this....rotating electric
machinery repair, dc or ac, motor/generator; and winding design,
construction and installation. Good clear video.

Help; how many possible contacts would exist in a starter motor which has
25 commutator contacts? 26 only? are 32 possible?

It looks like a lap wound machine with one turn coil consisting of three
parallel wires. I used to make such motors with solid bars as in the
starter motors. I appreciate the equaliser hidden behind the commutator, I
never made one like that as the equalisers were at the other side of the
winding, no mistakes here, eh?
In my time around 1954 to 56 while doing my apprenticeship with the Royal
Navy, I remember putting the armatures in a tall column where we first
heated it UNDER VACUUM CONDITIONS and then without opening it to atmosphere
we opened a valve and the varnish or shellac would enter to immerse the
armature. The the shellac would be drained off through vacuum control and
the heat applied again to dry it. Once it went in for this procedure it was
never subjected to the atmosphere ensuring that all humidity was
extracted. But the Royal Navy could afford the best back then.
We used to wrap steel bands around the armature to hold in the winding and
in the slots we used a half round ebonite or such old material by another
name. Leatheroid and fibreglass tape I remember and I obtained better
cooling than shown in this video. The worse are fully enclosed motors as
used in coal mining activities.

I'm curious how much motor winders make an hour. I'm sure it depends but an
average say.

Seriously Florida Bearings. An awesome video but you´ve destroyed it with
that background music. Please eliminate it and let the craftsman's talking
do the "singing".

Was looking to wind my own hobby-motor... which is 1:500th the size of this
beast. And just kept on watching this movie. Nice, great craftsmanship.

Author michael settlemire ( ago)
Interesting video. There are several flaws in this video, first off the
coil leads are tinned, a armature of this size should have coils tig welded
to the commutator. The problem with soldering a comm is as the motor is
loaded and the temperature increases the solder will melt and sling out,
causing a open circuit in the commutator. Next they banded the armature all
the way up to the back side of the commutator riser.thus cutting off the
air flow that would normally cool the armature. This armature will fail
because the winder did not pay close attention to what he was doing .Air
flow is essential in cooling a D.C.motor.

Nice video, although I had to turn the audio off to avoid all that noise in
the background (some might call it music, but it's just ear pain to me).

Very interesting video. Instrumental music (or none at all) would have been
a lot easier to hear the craftsman through instead of singing. Old guys
like me are already three quarters deaf.

Too much music, especially when it gets very loud at the end! A good way to
spoil a informative video with music!

Not only does the music suck it is too loud.
Besides that wow a lot of work!

Electricity is like water flow. Electric current is like the speed and
direction of the water flowing. Voltage is like water pressure, it
determines how much work the electricity will do. In an armature the
windings have two ends. One end will have current run into it and the other
will have current run out. The reason why the ends are so far apart is
because current flowing into the winding will make a north magnet around it
and current flowing out will make a south magnet (or vice versa)

Author scb232 ( ago)
windings and the positioning of the brushes changes the magnetic field
between the windings based on their relation to the field coils that
basically act as constant north and south pole magnets (they alternate so
in a 4 pole motor it would be N S N S each would be 90 degrees apart). It
is easier to understand with a visual. (google DC motor animation and the
first one should be a 2 pole motor) In the animation the big blue and red
objects are the field coils and the armature is simplified.

Author scb232 ( ago)
Learning the basics of electricity and magnetism shouldn't require math if
it's taught correctly. George, this is a video about armature winding, not
about its function. The armature windings create magnetic fields between
them in the grey iron core seen in the video. Because of the position of
the brushes and windings the magnetic field will change from
"North"/"South". There are things called "field coils" inside the motor
that are stationary electromagnets. The armature rotates because its

Do not let anyone tell you how to learn, no matter how many meaningless
pieces of paper they may have. Anyone who goes to lengths to try and throw
negative energy deserves no attention. Just study it all day, everyday.
Fuck your TV, radio, and entertainment. Train your mind...blah
get the point. If it does not work you are not doing it right! ; )

I understand what you are saying. I believe really out there stuff then I
realized my beliefs were not justified. I believed these things because of
the internet. I WANT TO LEARN! but I have a learning disability. I can't
learn from books. Just typing online (which I do often) is overwhelmingly
frustrating. My eyes hurt when I type, my brain can't even remember the
whole of the paragraph I typed. It's very foggy and frustrating. I like
videos, they help me learn.

outstanding armature was tested before and after banding. a lot of folks do
not set coils and relieve the pressure from the corners before cutting off
coil ends. if the coil ends are cut off before testing and there is a
problem you may not be able to reuse the coils

Author FloridaBearings ( ago)
Yes, that is correct.

Author FloridaBearings ( ago)
The reason for the 45 degree angle is to have the coil ends meet at the
proper slot of the commentator.

You left out the dirty work. Looks like it was soldered and the you had to
clean the varnish off the part of the shaft that was dipped before the bake

Author skyflyer900 ( ago)
What i am talking about below can also be seen very well at 2:15 . Both
sides of the coil have about 45 degree bends instead of just having the
coil go across the armature as a straight line.

Author skyflyer900 ( ago)
Why do the coils on the armature bend about 45 degrees before being
inserted into the commutator? As seen at 1:56
