A classic electron ring model is presented, which is stable under the influence of electric and magnetic forces. This elementary Compton-sized model rotates at the speed of light and correctly reproduces the mass and magnetic moment of the particle. Its mass displays the same logarithmic singularity obtained in quantum electrodynamics, and its properties allow a simple interpretation of other quantum results. The equivalent spherical radius that produces the same maximum electric field is of the order 10-106 m.
