I have a motor I rewound according to Peter's directions, ( the X pattern) but I did not put in a second set of brushes. With proper switching you can pulse the motor and collect the CEMF and collapse of the coil on the same wires you used to supply power. This is one of the motors I have been considering using with this setup. Just haven't had the time yet. Plus I just remembered I have another DC motor with two sets of brushes, wound the same way because originally I thought you needed two sets of brushes to run that setup. Will have to give that a try.
