RPM uses one clamp mounted in the base, the Motor Work Station can hold a motor horizontally for such things as solder connections, or fan-type break-in and cooling. It then quickly converts to the vertical position for brush maintenance, solder connections, or cleaning of motors using any number of cleaning solutions. (Our Motor Work Station is impervious to all types of motor sprays.) The second motor clamp is provided in the kit to allow bench mechanics to do opposed motor break-ins where a drive motor is positioned opposite a new motor and then joined together with the included coupling tube. By using a drive motor, the mechanic can condition a new motor to extend its life as well as increase performance by conditioning the brushes and bearings while spinning the armature without the heat or arcing of the brushes normally associated with fan type break-in procedures. When not in use, the two clamps tuck neatly and compactly into its rugged base for easy and compact storage. The base and clamps are all made from RPM's bulletproof nylons. In addition, RPM designed the Motor Work Station to elevate the motor (s) off of the work bench during maintenance to eliminate the possibility of debris getting pulled into the motor due to air flow and the magnetic attraction of the motor.
