I have an extreme cake coming up and a portion of it needs to rotate. I can not find a small DC motor that will rotate at approx. 10 rpm. The smallest I can find is from Radion Shack and it rotates at 8500 rpm.....way too fast for this application! Any one have any idea where to find a motor that small and that slow or has anyone done this before that can offer some advice?
Check out Sharon Zambito's blog. She has a red/white/blue cake she did for someone with a top lid opening and closing very slowly as well as a rotating part. I think she talks about using some sort of small toy motor to get the job done.
Thank you....I was able to contact the local state college who has a robotics club and they have a motor for me that will do the trick!! Thanks everyone!
