Hi Red,

Thanks for the info about the coils, I didn't even know there was a two coil version. I am building one very similar to the machine shown on the DVD with the four coils in series. I'm still deciding if I should make them with the three paralelled windings or just keep it simple and only have the one winding.

As far as the shaft goes, I have managed to get one made out of a rigid plastic. I can't recall the type but it should be a good "axle" as this isn't a torque motor. Also, being made from plastic makes it easy to drill holes into for attaching the coils etc.

Cheers,

Steve
