Motor demonstration rig

One of the interesting projects from the Omaha Maker Group meeting on Jan 10. Ben put together this little motor demonstration rig with a couple of magnets, a 3D printed frame, and the armature from a commercial motor. Here he is just holding a couple of wires against the commutator as brushes. It's interesting to see the effect of adjusting the brush positions relative to the magnets.
