Title: Motor for spinning wheel
Post by: singerep on August 17, 2017, 01:49:06 PM
Hello! Can anyone recommend a inexpensive motor to be used to continually spin a medium-lightweight wheel about 6 inches in diameter at at least 4000 rpm (preferably more).
Thanks!

Hi!

You can check out Power Jack Motion's (http://www.powerjackmotion.com/product-category/electric-motor/) Electric Motor range. They do have a wide, interesting line of products, so your choices won't be limited. Aside from RPM, there are a lot of considerations you need to do in order to select the right motor; the site's brief discussion on selecting such can provide you an overview of what's going to be the best motor for your needs.

Hope this helps!
