Richard Quick sent a post out recently concerning a motor from C & H that could be used on a
rotary gap. I have a little news about it.
The part number from C & H is DCM9401. I noted when I received mine that it was stamped
115 volts AC/DC. I called the Carter Motor Company on this.
This motor can be used with either AC or DC, there is no need to rectify . If you don't rectify,
you will lose a little motor efficiency, that is all. Considering the low torque that a rotary
requires, it shouldn't matter to a coiler in the least that some efficiency is lost. So, if you
order one of these motors, you may not want to bother with the rectifiers.
If someone knows of a reason to rectify that the manufacturer is not aware of, please drop me a
