It's not a pancake winding machine, but interesting.

thanks for getting back to me on this . i did not realize you are the same person as the gear plate . ya i see what you mean about getting info. on sum stuff. just was thinking because my back round is automotive on sum older in bottle washer pumps motors they do have a pancake armature in the can but armature shaft is much longer. so i was thinking the armature is getting wound on the same type of machine. or do you think thay are using a coil winding machine. just wondering . let me know what you think .
thanks again.

I hand-wind my own Aurora & AFX pancake armatures, mainly from just tearing down a few bad ones & reversing the process.   Success has been about 50/50 since these were all bad to begin with, but I have built some swift ones.   It's not too difficult once you try a few.   I have not attempted inlines, because my eyes are too old & my fingers are too big.

thanks for letting me know on that . i my self have rewound by hand just trying to find out what type of machine rewinds the pancake style armatures. you should try to do a inline rewind i think they are much easier to do . but i am to a older slot car racer and run and race all my t jets they are the best. i am a home racer and just enjoy this great hobby.
glade to see you sill enjoy racing also.have a good day. i will wright back to you again. thanks again for letting me know how you do your rewinding.
