Dear engineering gurus,

I was wondering if some of you might be able to help me out with my project (2 part question):

I'm basically trying to make a rotating plinth (like those used
in jewelry displays - except i need it to bear a weight of 1kg.
(Most ready-made plinths wont take anywhere near that so i imagine id have to build my own.

Now i've come across a small motor (MM54) that has the following info for its specs:

Constant Volts: 6 - 9
Speed RPM: 8900 - 16200
Torque (g-cm): 174 - 236
Stall torque (g-cm): 980 - 1800

My first question is - would anyone know if this motor is powerful enough to take the weight of 1kg and still function?
(Am i right to be choosing a motor that has a high torque speed?) Is there another motor that someone could recommend that would suit my purpose?

Second question - As i need to bring this down to about 1 RPM, can anyone recommend a gearbox that will allow me to do this?
(Is this even possible with the motor i'm suggesting?)

Apologies if my questions seem a little inept - ive never done anything quite like this before. And i really really appreciate any help or suggestions...

Thanks!

 Go to www.ebay.com and search for "gear motor". I got over 1000 hits. Some are around 1 RPM.
 Hi Bob, Thanks for that. I found 2 other motors that (i believe) seem more appropriate: The one is: 12V, 1 RPM, 65 Stall-torque (in-oz) The other is: 12V, 2 RPM, 31 Stall-torque If i wanted to have a bit more control in the RPM, should i be getting the second one that is 2RPM and then get a dimmer-switch type thing to adjust it? Would that work? And also, what is the relation between my 1kg weight requirement and the 'stall-torque'? Is 31 stall-torque alot? does it equate to a weight capacity? Could i go for maybe something that has 7RPM but then only 16 stall-torque? Thanks again.
