    V Twin Solenoid Motor

    I made this some time ago, but it just always makes me smile and so ran it tonight and made a short video



    Some more details of the solenoid v-twin are here along with some still images of the detailed design.

    It doesn't generate much torque, but would be interesting to re-design as a more powerful motor

    That would be a 2-stroke?

    Hello Baja, this is actually a 4 stroke, the switches are driven from cams that are geared 2:1 from the crankshaft. Hopefully the image below helps:

    A short video of this little model solenoid motor running


    So simple to make and great fun if you're just wanting to get back into machining something

    Sat watching my model solenoid motor on the desk and thought that this is a great example that shows the bearing fundamental train frequency, so had to video it in slow motion to share with you all.



    Also, note that the switch is following the cam very closely with little bounce
