Beautiful workmanship, especially on the propeller gap! I love how these
Teletype sync motors built in the 60's have found a new purpose in life.
What is your ballast limiting the current to? I would expect that you can
get a lot more then 35" with that transformer. Have you played with the
coupling yet? FWIW, the Fair radio caps were said to use a Mylar
dielectric, though I also used one many years ago. It will get warm and
bears close watching.
