I am pretty much a novice and was really hoping for some help and advice for installing and powering extra motors. I am trying to install 2 small, lightweight pieces that will slowly rotate on my machine. Can anyone help me choose the proper motor and explain where I would connect it for power?
The motor does not need a lot of power as it is rotating a small and light weight piece of plastic. It should be smaller in order to fit in a specific location so it is easy to hide or cover, it should also have a short shaft due to height constraints. The motor's rpm can be slow or fast, it doesn't make much difference to me; but I don't want to to be too slow. I'm thinking at least 10 rpm should do the trick.
Based on my limited knowledge and understanding I found these 2 motors which I thought might possibly work...
http://www.marcospecialties.com/pinball-parts/14-7944 , which is a replacement for a Williams "Fire!" Machine and http://www.marcospecialties.com/pinball-parts/14-7939 , which is a motor for a beacon on "Highspeed". I think if I could make either of these motors functional in my machine it would meet the size requirements and other specs I'm looking for. The motor would be going into a cactus canyon and the location would be very close to the backbox; so would either Of these motor work in a CC? If so, where would I connect it for power? If neither of these motors will work, does anyone have a suggestion for another one and explain how I would power that motor?
I sincerely appreciate any help on this! I have been doing a lot of reading and research on different motors, voltages, Splitter cables, motor Hz, extra power supply boards; been trying to figure this out for weeks now on my own, but none of it is really making sense or helping me solve the problem.
