I took all off my Aluminum scrap to my friend that does recycling and made a 100.00 off that. He wasn't up when I got there so I opened the gate and went in had a good look around while I was waiting on him.

While I was there he ask me if I found something to buy and I showed him the motor and ask how much he picked it up and put it in my truck saying know charge.

So I think it was a pretty good score because I like old motors. Some body had all ready jury rigged the wires but I did plug it in to see if it ran. It was really quiet but the oilers are broken of so I'll have to fix that.

I like the way you can here the starter click off when it reaches speed. Then there's barely a hum. I've few around , some take offs , others auction or yard sale . Always good to have one around .

By any chance, was that motor built in New Mexico around July or August of 1945? Or does it date further back, like to Hero of Alexandria? :)
Very pretty, in any case!

LOL and how do you take it apart? Is it like a motor in a bottle?

F.S. Betz made medical equipment, I wonder if it may have been designed as an explosion proof motor for use in oxygen rich environments. How big is it?

Explosion proof- that sounds very likely since it looks like a brush type motor- is the rpm listed there on the plate? It's variable speed correct?

Looking at the eyelet makes me think it must hang from overhead and might be from a flexible shaft, rotary tool, like a dentists drill?
