You're right...TES's question was as you indicated above...I read it too
quickly I'm afraid  :(     Thanks for pointing this out.

And of course the phase *can* be adjusted by rotating the rotor 
relative to the shaft...and some folks do this...but this is
inconvenient to do.   Much easier to rotate the whole motor.  It's a
little more work to make up the rotate-able cradle, but well worth the
effort once you start running the coil.
