 I was wondering if anyone out there could help identify this little guy, it doesn't appear to be a knapp,porter,ajax,or rex.??????  it is missing its top badge identification.. these pictures were sent to me and I have been unable so far to identify it's manufacturer, my first thought was it's a little hustler prototype I just don't know ... is it a possibility that it is a kit of some sort that you would put together for hobbyist, and possibly not a factory assemble one..

It is 100% a Voltamp motor, they had different sizes like the porter motors did. 

This repop tag on Ebay should fit it, I have bought a few from him & they are nice, especially for the price.

 from FeeBay?

How do you power these little guys? & what is the age?

Looks like that copper strip on top (brush holder?) is missing
