Default Bipolar Generator 1898

While looking for things to do during this bad weather , this was bought on ebay a couple of months ago. I thought that it was a motor but a note on the bottom stated that it was made by Geo. C. Barclay in 1898 and used for electroplating in Barclay & Sons shop for 20 years. It is 7" H. and well made. When I got it there were broken and corroded electrical connections a missing wire connection. after a couple of days I got it all cleaned up. I was able to run it as a motor. It is a 2 pole armature so it is not self starting. I was running it on a 6 V battery but it was drawing 15 Amps. I tried turning it with a motor but wasn't able to get it to generate. I think that I need to spin it faster. Ron
