It would cost more than you would find on eBay It would take me about 10 hours to rewind the armature including varnishing And skim the commutator So I think at the moment with motors still available Buying motors is the way to go if your armature has shorted or burnt out

Not many motors come on ebay ? There's an armature winding firm other side of town. Wonder how much they charge ?

I would be surprised if they wound it for less than £100 Because of the time it takes it is all done by hand
