I tested it with a little 9V battery and it took right off running. A fabulous looking piece, and if you were into steampunk, a wonderful early electric motor to power what ever your project or item is. Don't let this excellent example slip on by. Overseas and Canada, please inquire. Good luck & thanks for looking!
