Thank you for your swift response. It's great to have an electronics supplier willing to take the time to help the ignorant not waste their money
It seems all the motors are of a high-speed, low torque design so you're belt recommendation may be the solution. Could I use gear reduction to increase the torque but have the fixed axel of the table running right down the middle of the final gear and attached to it--so that the final gear turns the table rather than worrying about a belt and its attachment point?
shield be the one to get for driving the motor you referenced? And I did find this
for the belt, but I couldn't find the gears/wheels on your site. I'm not yet understanding how it would all connect.
If I should need a much higher torque motor in the future for more substantial loads (100 lbs) in a larger version of the table, do you have any motor options for that? I think continuous DC motors might work unless the rotation is drastically inconsistent between steps. What type of shield with external power would I use for that?
