What's Inside? #3: Electric Motor!

Introduction: What's Inside? #3: Electric Motor!

About: I've been making Instructables since I was 13. Now, I mostly make videos of my projects, however I'm still active here, so don't hesitate to reach out! Sick with a deadly disease called DIY-itis!

This motor was salvaged from a mini vacuum cleaner, If you're interested in seeing what else was in the vacuum cleaner you can get see it here

The reason this motor stopped working was because the holes in the filter weren't small enough, so when I vacuumed aluminum dust after sawing, The aluminum particles short circuited the motor.

Step 1: But... What's Inside the Motor?

After taking it apart I learned that this motor wasn't even brush-less!

I saved the magnets, But I don't think they're going to be useful because they are really weak

Everything else is explained in the picture
