Post Parts Question
Just a couple of quick questions.

I plan on buying a dayton gear motor from servocity. Is it best to get the slowest rpm, .45, or should I go for something faster. I know I can control the speed but I don't know what the limits are for increasing or decreasing the speed.

I am having a hard time finding a belt and pulley to use with the gear motor. I can find what I need on polybelt.com but the amount they charge for shipping to Canada makes it impractical to buy from them. Does anyone know of anywhere else I might look to find this?

Thank you for any help you can offer.

Just to clarify, I spent quite a bit of time searching on google for a supplier but I have not had any luck.

Depends what speed you want. The super slow motor is great for time-lapse only and strong as a horse.

Just another quick question.

How slow do you think I could get a 45 rpm gear motor to go with a pwm speed controller?

Depends on the PWM controller in question, but but the safe zone is usually 1/3rd full speed. Rarely can you get down to 10% and still have torque w/ basic PWM.
