Hi Brad S

You wind one side to the point, then with the same wire wind the other from the point. So as you look at the windings from the shaft end you have a north on one side and a south on other. I have to say I found it very frustrating to wind (not that I have much experience of motors) because its so small.

Dana, I think you are correct, as I say its the same way viewed from the shaft end, (over the top, return under) otherwise viewed side on, one is CW the other CCW.
