In this video he shows how to wind the armature. although he connects to the nearest commutator segment instead of at 90 degrees. He also points out one of the compromises in a standard armature which creates increased BEMF and makes it unsuitable for my design. Thirdly he points out a problem with pole width on the armature, this isnít a problem with standard motors but is a problem with my design.
