    Hi Guys,FWIW I've salvaged a number of small ball races from scraped HDD motors and head arms.

    Hi Pete,Yes on double insulated tools there would not be an earth connection. I don't think

    Hello Pete,There are only two capacitors on that motor ! The motor body should be earthed and
    where you have drawn a capacitor to the motor body is not a capacitor, it is actually the
    common wire from...
