All you need to build a working DC motor and learn its parts from the inside out! Assembly involves winding your own armature and field coil; building the commutator with two snap-together pieces; installing brushes into the holes in the base; and slipping one battery into battery clips. This isn’t a watered-down geegaw with a few measly parts that you’ll handle once and then discard. This clever kit has been used for over 40 years to teach crucial concepts to children aged 10 and up.
Kit includes: coil of copper wire; plastic base with holes for parts; field poles; armature core; brushes; all fasteners; and detailed, illustrated assembly instructions with 8 experiments. You need 1 AA battery.
