Default DC Motor Winding

I'm looking into learning more about motors by winding some of my own, but for the life of me I cant find any information using Google on the internet.

I'm aware i'll need high temperature solder and soldering equipment, and aware that my arms will be slow and more than likely totally suck - but hey I want to learn more so why not

If anyone could point me to a decent resource on winding of DC motor armatures, printed or online, I would be greatful.

If yer ready to drop a couple grand.....I can tell you what you need.....if not, not much point in using up my time....

It's a long process that requires expensive speciality equipment.......there are no shortcuts....

There is not printed manual....and online....Big Jim's site is the only place you really find much. There is stuff there.....I saw Jim type it myself, or I typed it.....so I know its there.

If you have SPECIFIC questions.....I will answer them.....but large open ended questions that will take 20 minutes to write, are not gonna work....

An example....

What type of device do I use to wind an armature?

These units are often custom made. A company called Quillen Engineering made a powered version, that sped up the process greatly. Quillen is out of business and the units are fairly rare.......winders will typically use one of these or the old school hand crank type units. I have both in my shop.....

Vortex :

Try This link. It's the closest I could find for the size of our motors.
