Motor Winding w/Jim Cohen
Here is a motor field getting wound! This is for one of Jim Cohen's Trolley's. Just something to keep in mind, every manufacturer of standard gauge has to do this in som form or fashion. When it is done right, these little wound motors really crank! Plenty of them are still around from the early part of the last century, so we know they last...
I actually spent some time with Jim winding this one. This is one very time consuming process that requires some real accuracy. I couldn't believe how Jim had this down to a series of very focused procedures. Now I also know why some standard gauge trains seem to run and work better than others. This little piece really effects the quality of the whole train.
