I was going through a large box of random motors I got at a yard sale. I was sorting them for use in later projects when I came across a motor I couldn't classify. Long story short, the magic smoke left so I figured I would open it up.
What I found didn't seem to make sense to me. There are two separate stator coils, which I had predicted from my multimeter. But they run around the rotor, not up and down it. The only thing I can liken it to is a solenoid, so I'm confused how this would work as a motor. Also I couldn't find anything with the motor's part number aside from some eBay listings which don't help.
