Title: need recommendation for good brand of motors
Post by: dmehling on December 16, 2015, 05:43:40 PM
I am needing recommendations for a good brand of either motors or servos.  I am leaning towards a 12v DC motor, since I don't exactly need the precision of a servo.  I need a high torque motor, in the neighborhood of 1000-2000 oz-in., but I don't need more than 10 rpm.  Should I consider a motor that already can reach the required torque amount, or would it be better to add additional gears?  My budget is about $15-$40 for a single motor.

 ;D Hello!
I could give you a generic answer, but you could generate that yourself. The person who is an expert in the motors in this forum is Bduell. You could send him a message. Look up his posts in this forum, and you will see a lot of useful information that you can use. Good Luck!  ;) :) :D ;D
