    I found a little circuit that runs a hdd motor to silly speed from dc, with
    only a few comps, but this is even simpler, never thought of something as

    Where in the circuit and which capacitor do i need to use if i want to use
    an HDD motor at high speed with a 12 volt or 9 volt battery? Please can you
    send me a simple circuit diagram ??

    I know this is really a stupid question but is that a relay?! .. could you
    pls tell how you connected the wires?

    H**lo. Can you share your schem of phase invertor?

    Simple yes, but uneficient. HDD motor is three phase synchronous motor. If
    you want to get something out of it and not burn it, you should know what
    you are doing. As you see at the beginning of the video, the motor doesn’t
    start from itself. It requires three phase 120° shifted voltage. If a
    capacitor was used to shift phase a bit, it would start from it’s own.
