Drying Wheel Speed,13rpm?

3 posts in this topic

trying to make a drying wheel,found a motor but its about 13rpm,is this to much?

Most ive seen on here are in the 1-3rpm range.

i know where i can prob get microwave motor,maybe way to go.

have some devcon 2ton now,am getting some etex,dont know if this makes difference in speed.

also do you primer plastic cranks with something special,i was going to use opaque white createx,

but not sure,have more questions than typing ability.thanks

My opinion is that it will work. Worst case, if it doesn't is that you have to change the motor for a slower one. Do a test piece first, before trying your hard work. Don't forget to report back.

You did not state weather it was an AC or DC motor, so you have to rate the rheostat for the voltave and amperage being pushed through it. But here is how you can slow any motor down by decreasing the input voltage to it.

Potentiometer as a rheostat
