Hi guys,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I bought a high-torque DC motor, that says at the back: 6,000 (gf.cm).

I am intending to use this motor to power a plinth on a turntable. So the motor will be upright, with its shaft pointing up.

My question is - What is the maximum weight i can put on this turntable, where the motor

will still be able to turn? (ie. what does gf.cm equate to in terms of kg?)

Thanks so much for your help!
