Motor Construction

As prepared by Tim Harwood, March, 2006.

Rotor

With the help of some epoxy glue, 2 free internet CDs become a rotor. Note, the magnets should be no wider than 3/4".

I used wood (non conductive) to hold the rotor in place.

Subsequently, old hard drive rotors emerged as the favorite mounting platform for the rotor, because they were cheap, stable, and low friction.

Stators

The bizarre over wound stators are THE SECRET of the Adams motor.

The materials are very simple. Mild steel nail, tap washers, nail head covers, scissors, tape, enamelled wire.

Wind the nail - about 2" deep.

Done. Just wind tape over the outside of the bare enamelled wire to finish.
