A winding is mounted on a molded plastic bobbin especially--but not exclusively--for use in a fractional house-power motor. A number of connector sites are molded in and along an exposed surface of the flange of the bobbin. Therefore, the flange acts as a power distribution panel for the fractional horse power motor and accessories associated therewith. The connector sites may be programmed in any convenient manner by electrical interconnections between the connector sites. The invention reduces manufacturing costs, saves space inside a small appliance housing, and reduces or eliminates floating wires and connection which might cause a failure in the field.
