Ready for another set? Start with a new wire on any other pole and repeat the above process. Make sure to test for shorts after each phase. I used different color wires for each phase. I'll call the green A phase, red B phase, and gold, C-phase. You'll notice the stator becomes crowded very quickly. You can clear some room with a dull object such as a speader from your kitchen drawer. At least that's what I used in this tutorial. I now prefer a credit card.

After that, you're almost done. Next step,

Just a side note: it took me 6 attempts to wind C-phase without shorting to the stator! A and B were perfect on the first try. The only reason for the shorts is I didn't do a very good job insulating my stator.
