Hi There,

the last attempt at a lure drying wheel somewhere along the line went pear shaped when the motor chewed up its gearbox (mirror ball rotator)

anyway I am about to buy a new hopefully better motor I have the choice of one that run at 2.5-3 rpm or 5-6 rpm, they are motors from a microwave turntable what do you guys think would be best??

Cheers John

for the topcoats used by most here, the 5-6 will do fine.

I bought a rotissarie from Walmart for 19.99. Used a styrofoam wheel wrapped in plastic and glued dowel rods in it. The forks on the rotissarie stick into the styrofoam and hold it firmly. Works great.
