I wish I had known you were going to wind an MY1020. I would have given you better info on winding. I don’t have access to my notes because they are in boxes for the move, but I do remember that it has MORE wire than the MY1016.

I believe the first time I wound one I LOOKED at previous MY1016 motors that I had wound and tried to fill the slots just as full of wire. I kept track of the number of turns per slot so that they would all be roughly the same. But since there is one extra set of turns on the MY1020, that’s quite a bit more wire. And that will impact your speed. I run mine on 24 volts.
