Recent Early Electric Motor Purchases
« on: April 11, 2022, 06:04:00 pm »
It seems that I have been accumulating a small collection of early toy motors recently, so I thought I would get a video of all the recent acquirements.  Most have come from Ebay, and a few others from friends.  It's just something to fill the time until I find the next great steam engine purchase!

Interesting assortment. The Ajax is sweet.

The gentleman who sold the Ajax on eBay does beautiful restorations. I will be watching for future listings. It runs beautifully on a single AA battery.

I like your Motors very much - especially the big SS (Super Sport) with the cool sound!
Nice to play around, Arnold :D
