I found this motor at a thrift shop and got it for free. I wired it up and found that it pulls a surprising .45 Amps. It also generates an amazingly effective magnetic field around it. I am scared to touch it with both hands. It seems to have a small transformer...... Probably makes some mean voltage. AS I recall, it only takes about .1 A across the heart to KILL. So can I touch it? Thanks..
