First YouTube Video – Making a simple motor

I finally managed to get this video done and uploaded. It’s my first, and boy did I have some issues to sort out. Its far from good, in fact, there are probably so many issues with it that film people will use it to show how not to do a video – but, you have to start somewhere and this is my start.

I started making this homemade motor to show my niece and nephew how a motor works and wanted to do something where they could see the moving parts. The initial attempt yielded some results, but I got the position of the commutators wrong and so had to redo them to get them in the right place – It works quite well now and I think gives a good demonstration of a motor.

While this motor worked, I do want to try a better one, perhaps with three coils and I think I might 3D print it.
