The Etek motor

The Etek motor
After having lots of people at the Tour de sol and people at Insight Central as well tell me about the Etek motor I set out to source one, and found that they were in short supply. I went to the MIT swap meet today and scored one. The brush cover came off as soon as I got home,so I could see how it was made.I found that the brush to input terminal wire was not assembled correctly with about 1/4 of the copper strands not connected. I soldered the loose strands to the terminal and will just have to live with it. You can tell that Briggs was set up to bang these motors out. Very inexpensive and clever design.
