Left.  The drive magnets are checked for polarity and field strength and marked red for north pole, blue for south pole.
Right. Some magnets temporarily installed. Note alternating polarity. All magnet and coil positions are marked accurately on the tabletop drawings. The 3 rectangles are coils. There are 14 sets of 3, 42 coils in all. There are 168 magnets. The Smartdrive uses 42 coils and 56 magnets. This machine will require 3 times as much switching for each revolution. The magnet to gap ratio is nearly identical to the Smartdrive.
