: Motor for epoxy wheel

Hello All,

I may have found a nice motor that would work out really well if you want to make a small rotating wheel that will aid in the quest for symmetrical epoxy flies. The motor is small and I think that it would be happier if it was driving a small/light load such as a styrofoam wheel. Good enough for me. I only dry 4 or so flies at a time.

The motor can be found at the following site:

For the lazy, the motor description is as follows:

*****
Timing Motors
These are really geared reduction motors, but much smaller and of lower power. Often used to operate cams and switches in electrical circuits, or to drive displays, they can generally be operated in continuous applications if not heavily loaded. Most are about 2" dia. x 1-1/2" thick. Remember CW means “Clockwise” and CCW “Counterclockwise” looking at the shaft.

Item: 30326 Timing Motor
RPM: 4.8
Voltage: 120 VAC
Shaft Diameter: 1/4 Gear
Manufacturer: TimeTech
Price: $3.50/EACH
*****

I bought four of these motors and after I dish out a few to family members (and yes, you too borkowski) I may have one or 2 left over. I would be happy to donate any left-overs to forum members. I will let you know if the motors work out. They should arrive at my place in 10 days or so. They are rated for continuous operation which is a plus...and you cannot beat the price.

Am I one of said relatives?

I guess that would mean getting off my backside and learning to tie.

Mike, I'd be interested in one of those motors if you still have leftovers. Let me know.
