    Great tutorial into magnatism. But even as someone with experience with motors and generators I found the instructions lacking.

    My rating of Electric Motor Generator Kit
    Posted 11/4/2010 by jo

    A great learning toy for an 8 year old and his grampa to put together and learn from one generation to another! I dont know who is having more fun, the 72 year old or the 8 year old! an interactive toy in the days of computors is a great thing. Even better is the social connection it is making.

    Information about Electric Motor Generator Kit
    Posted 4/20/2010 by Frank S. Dzielski

    The motor when constructed cannot be used as a motor because it does not produce enough torque and there is not way to connect a device to the motor. It is a toy that functions but it has no utility. The parts are very small not good for adult fingers. Buying a real motor and disassembling it would be a better choice. Motors come as single phase, multiphase this is a primitive device that has no function.
