Hi Bro Mikey,
This post might be a bit cheeky, so just let me know if you want me to remove it,or not post anymore after it. I like your build so far. serious stuff.

Here is a toy MoGen test bed I have been nibbling at.

Layer one is an old AC shaded pole fan motor, that has been chopped here and there, and rewound for 12 V. The rotor has been replaced with laminated cut down steel washers.

Layer 2 is a Hall Effect sensor and timing rotor.

Which makes a Brushless DC Reluctance motor.

The switching transistor is running quite a bit hotter than I would like.
