I picked up a Grove Gear 100:1 gearbox attached to a Magnetek variable speed DC motor yesterday at an auction.
I have a ring roller project that I'm going to use the gear box on.
I don't know a thing about this type of motor, and would appreciate any input you can give me.
It's listed as 1/4 HP, 1725 RPM, I've done some searching on-line, but can't find the voltage/amp requirements. Any ideas?
Does anyone have a recommendation on a power supply to run this?
I hooked it up to a 12v 12a battery charger and the motor/gearbox works, just no where near 1725 RPM ( at the motor)..
I can get an AC motor with the same frame as this one that will work on the gear box, but I'd like to use this DC motor if possible.
ideas or questions?
