For some reason it has started using batteries much faster than it used to. I have tried several different brands of batteries from several different sources and they all seem to last about the same. Because of the bulk of the sliding portion ...

Hello, I'm hoping to convert old household induction motors to brushless motors basically by replacing the rotor with magnets. However I'm having difficulty understanding the stator winding patterns. I need to isolate the phases obviously. Any suggestions? Even if they are two phase instead of three phase, that is useful too. Thanks, Michael
