If you want to build a magnet rotor motor, just for
fun, go to youtube, and search for "Newman Motor" ,
there are lots of videos of these science project
sized magnetic armature motors to look at. Build one
with your kids, make's a neat science project. They
are an interesting motor to say the least.

If this got posted twice, I apologize, I didn't think
it went through.
