Have no idea how fast it`s going, it does have pretty good power.
I want a vintage motor that would on less volts but hard to find that i can afford.

Took us a while to get the bugs out of this new motor but in the end we won.

Persistence pards, took us four days of aggravation to get it running, made a new three pole armature.
Running on a six volt lantern batt.

Thanks Jim, it has issues yet, the commentator bars heat up for some reason.
I built it from a picture of a original on the web, i`m not very electrical smart so it`s a challenge.
Going to tinker with it some today.
