SHE DID IT !!!!!

Here it is folks, Betty's 221 motor.  She did it all by herself.  Isn't she clever?  This all started with an email that she sent me with a couple of photos. 
 If I had been using my Dell Laptop then, instead of my MacBook Pro I would have been able to save and enlarge the photo and probably have been able to see that her concern was over the thicker insulation on the two wires.
Well, she did it she got her motor off and was able to figure out what the heck that was.  Of course, hind sight is always 20/20 vision.  I learned something and she did too.  She learned that she can take a motor off of a Feather weight.  Ain't this hobby The Best?


  1. The wire on mine, which is circled in red looks exaclty the same. What is that, and how can I fix it?

  2. That is not wire. That is fibre from the insulation. Look at the top photo and you can see the droopy fibres from the insulation. Sorry that I did not explain it better. No worries. Leave it be.

  3. Thank you so much, I was afraid to use mine again after seeing that photo. But you have given me the courage to take the motor off and clean it.
