Build an electric motor
Motorcycle with electric motorI am a passionate DIY enthusiast, specialising in electric motors. I also run a website named Amazing DIY-Projects.
Instructions for the electric motorEven though electric motors have been around for a while, so far I have not found any instructions that would enable the do-it-yourselfer to build a motor that is actually useful. That is why I decided to develop my own electric motor using simple materials and tools and which could be replicated by any tech-savvy person.

The following provides a quick look at building such a motor.
- One side of the magnets (56 disc magnets type S-30-10-N) is roughened with sandpaper.
- 28 magnets are placed on the rotor.
- The magnets are mounted by slightly lifting each one individually and then gluing it on.
