Re: Found: Sync Motors??

Hi John, List,

I double-checked and it isn't marked HYST (like the first 200 motors 
I found were!!). It also says 1/35 hp. Is this high enough to spin a 
Lexan rotor with a modest amount of electrodes? I have seen many 
designs with only 4. Thank you for your help, this is my first 
attempt to improve efficiency with a RSG.
