Hi Bill...

I also run a motor not too far below my coil assembly.  the shaft runs
parallel to the
secondary too. On a previous setup,  had to "rig" a motor in the same
fashion... BUT... I had
an extension cord run to the motor. What I did "wrong" was I had looped the
cord into several
neat coils about 3 feet below the primary. Once I turned on the power to
the piggie, the motor
went POOFFF !!!  Im thinking that the field of the primary sent one heck of
a whallop of juice
thru the motor. Now I run straight, short lengths of wire to my auxillary
equipment. Havent had
any signs of the ooopsies yet...
