Gadget Freaks: Video of Mother of all AC Motors Being Manufactured

IF you love those "How it's Made" style videos
AND
IF you love Tesla Motors
THEN watch this video
OTHERWISE skip to next post

This is not a Tesla motor, but same design. I like this video because it shows greater detail of the manufacturing process than any Tesla motor video I've seen to date. It even shows the rotor core being poured.

As much as I can tell an AC 3-phase induction motor is being built (and it might be 6-phase). One exception is that the motor in this video is using an aluminum rotor whereas Tesla Motors uses a copper rotor.
