Stuart Turner Electric Motor

A rather unusual vintage Stuart piece and the first we have seen in this style. This 1960's Stuart Electric Motor is in lovely condition for its age, painted in a bright red and mounted on a nice chunky wooden base.

There is not a great amount of information available on this item but the 1965 Stuart Cataloge describes it as such;

'simple in every detail, and so sturdy and reliable that it is used commercially for continuous work, driving small Fans, Contactors, etc. The Wick-Feed Lubrication provides for this, and only needs replenishing after 48 hours of continuous work.

The Armature core is of a special soft grey iron ground to diameter. The permanent magnet field, containing 15% Cobalt, has high Magnetic permeability, and is so accurately ground that the air-gap is no more than .005 of an inch, a most important feature. The pulley is 3⁄8-inch diameter.

The current consumption is extraordinarily low; an ordinary 4-volt dry battery will run it for some hours. The motor may be driven by two 4-volt batteries in series at greatly increased power. Higher voltage should not be used.

Never remove the Armature without first bridging the pole pieces with a piece of iron.

This Motor is just the thing for driving small Meccano Toys, Fans, Boats and similar work.'
