I love to tinker with stuff, clocks, the timer off my wife washer, oh well she wanted some of those new HE frontloaders anyway. Is there someplace I can buy a kit to build an outrunner? I don't think I could do a cd rom motor modification, I have really large hands, which come in handy at times but not for little bitty things. What special tools do you need, I have an account with Snap-On (The Worlds Best Tools) I'm a former heavy equipment mechanic, till I messed up my back, now I have plenty of time on my hands.

Warning: motor winding/building is very addictive, several people attested to that fact.
No special tools needed beyond what every RC pilot already has lieing around in his shop
