    Hamilton Beach Home Motor Documents

    hey folks,

    Mizkaki was kind enough to loan me her copies of the documentation for her Hamilton Beach Home motor.

    I made color scans of them and pulled a copy from an original advertisement on sale on EBay.

    They are zipped here:

    I like those motors. Been looking for one with the pivoting mount for a Singer machine.

    Well, Mizkaki was kind enough to also give me one motor and loan me another (so I can replicate a couple of parts from it)

    I have my original, the gift one, the loaner, and an extra one that I bought online now as well . I am in the process or rewiring one, if it works and I can to at least one of the others, i'd be more than willing to ship you one for the cost of shipping.

    Wow, these are great! Very clever idea to market it as a "movable" motor, not dedicated to a single purpose. However I do wonder how the fan was operated before the advent of this motor. It couldn't possibly have been by means of "Wearisome pedal trudgery, which often menaces health...."

    And it was expensive!! What does it say under $18.50? Looks like "Denver and [something] $19.00"

    How many amps or Watts are these motors? I want to estimate the cost of electricity. ("Costs less than 1 cent per hour") I tried using .7 amps (guesstimate) and 1 cent per hour, and I'm getting more than $10 per KWH! My math must be wrong.

    Edit: Yeah, I was off by a factor of 1000. Cost was about 1.2 cents per KWH. Very rough estimate though.

    The motor is the same motor used on the sewing machines with the "dogbone" connector that tuck under the arm when not in use. They are interchangable.

    What holds the motor mount onto the machine? It looks like it just sets there!
    I have the motor and the foot control!!! The motor mount for mine is a bit different that that one. And it swings out of the way!

    I would love high resolution!
    I sent an email, Steve.
