Stepper motors I have used before and I also know the basics of how it works. I have make one spin with an arduino by turning a pin on and off with 500 seconds of microdelay. I remember that the higher the delay the slower the motor spins.
With DC motors I just have used them by applying voltage to them.
I found some old battery electric drills on my house. I dissembled them in order to remove the motor.
1) The first drill that I dissembled had this motor:
If I connect a battery to the cables the rotor spins. This is therefore a DC motor and it works great.
2) The second drill had this motor inside. I messed up ripped a board that was connected to the top and I was left with this:
When I ripped the board that was on top I circled in yellow the cables that where attached to it. Is this a stepper motor? It looks like one to me but I think a drill should have a dc motor no? How can I make this motor work? What do you guys recommend?
I forgot to mention that this are connected:
1 - 4
2 - 5
3 - 6
Also I can tell there is a strong magnet inside even when it is not connected.
