This is a simple electric motor you can build out of parts you might have around the workshop.
The reed switch motor is a crude kind of brushless motor. Despite it's simplicity this motor
can reach fairly high speeds.
The basis of my motor is a VCR spindle thingymabob (I don't know it's proper name). The VCR
head is a good choice because the bearings are very smooth. You can use almost any kind of
bearing system for the magnet rotor, so long as it doesn't have alot of friction.
