Has anybody Seen a Aurora Armature made like this. I found it in a chassis Lot .
It is not handmade. Looks to be manufactured.
Runs very fast. Could it be a Aurora Proto type design??.
Aftermarket speed part??
If anyone has seen or bought one let me know .thanks

You mean with the different color windings? If so, I have a couple of them. Most were all the same color. The cars with the multi color windings were all stock, bought brand new.

If you are talking about something else, I don't know.

It looks like it's two lam's. I have never seen such a small comm plate on one of these arms.

Probably Faller.

Big E should know, but I say it looks like a stock Christmas tree arm that has been cut down to save rotating weight.

Dokk, No it just has the standard windings of a Aurora Armature. I just have not seen a Plate manufactured like this.

I'd have to agree with Al, to my memory (or lack of) it looks like an old Faller with the comm held on by splines rather than the clips coming off the laminations. Back in the brass days, we'd swipe the Faller motor brushes and springs and toss the rest of the car. Wish I had 'em all back now......... Give us a shot of the top of the gear plate.

I think he is asking about the comm style. Aurora used a full comm but I have never seen this style.....

"I think he is asking about the comm style. Aurora used a full comm but I have never seen this style....."


That's why I believe the whole arm is an old Faller pancake, Barney. They had the tri-color windings, as did Aurora in some applications, but as you said they used the full comm, it's all I remember on the Auroras, too. The Faller gear plates were a bit different as well as I recall (foggily, at that....). Any other old time HO'ers care to chime in??

I looked at a Faller motor and it looks the same.

Where would we be without Dokk?? Lacking in our history for sure....... I think the reason we didn't run those arms in the day (though Don says it's pretty fast) is the comms wouldn't stay on the shaft under extreme racing loads, especially after removing it to do a custom wind.
