Electric Motors in the Home Workshop
Workshop Practice Series #24
By Jim Cox
133 p. illus.
The author's earlier book Electric Motors described the basic principles of operation and methods of application of the wide range of motor types likely to be encountered in small engineering applications. In response to request for more detailed and practical information, this book provides this additional information. Detailed advice is given on how to identify and make good use of discarded and surplus motors from both domestic and industrial sources and also how to operate three phase motors from single phase supplies. Examples are given of actual workshop applications and conversions and, because many model engineers are interested in battery driven projects, sections are included on battery supplies and the use of motors in mobile projects.
