We're gonna try to build a repository here of useful information for motor hackers. If it becomes cluttered enough, which I hope it will, we may ask Greg to split out a subforum and create a couple of cans to stuff these things into. For now, I'll just dump some things willy-nilly into this thread. For your convenience, we'll try to present articles, etc., in PDF form.

First up, on a tip from Bill Fernald, "A Cheetah on Steroids" by Larry Shephard, off OWH.

And here's a scan of the early bench-reference of some of our childhoods (I had several myself), the Simco rewinding guide.

Here's a link to Steve O'Keefe's place, probably the coolest independent slot car website I've ever seen, where there's quite a bit of motor building info to be found:

From "Arm Winding"--Havlicek's photo sequence detailing a 16D wind. Use in conjunction with John's articles on Steve O'Keefe's site.
