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!
