1700rpm Motor

Unread postAuthor: Anon » Sun May 27, 2007 4:37 pm

So I have a 1700 rpm Utility motor and got no clue what to use it for.... It was from a old science far project that was destroyed long ago. Anyone have any ideas? Ive been thinking about several uses over the last few days.

how much torque does it have? is it one of those big ones for power tools? if its a small one similar to those foound in cheap r/c cars you could use it for <a href="http://www.philohome.com/hammerhead/hammerhead.htm">this</a> you dont have to make if from legos im sure something like wood would work fine.if its a medium sized motor i say use it on a Gatling gun and if its a huge motor and has lots of torque build a ballista and use the motor to make it fully auto, like have the motor pull pack the bow string after every shot and make some sort of magazine feeding device. i remember seeing some roman weapon witch was basically an auto ballista but it was crank powered it be sweet to hook a mother up to one and see if you could get like 2 round a second out of it. i think it was called like a polybus or something, i dont remember how to spell it

Only draw back to a bot would be the damn cord lol. The equipment needed to run it off a car battery and not drain it would get heavy...

Have you ever seen a battlebot up close? Theyre huge compaired to what they look like in the cage. Most of them weigh over 100 pounds, and they need too to avoid being flipped. A car battery converter would only add a few pounds and a good one will give you a KW output for hours.(If the battery is good)
