    Default Windshield-wiper Motors

    Windshield-wiper Motors
    I am currently using steppers on my machine but I have been seeing these 12V 4A windshield-wiper motors. I have seen them for 12 - $18. I bought one and am going to hook it up to a encoder and see what I can do with it. I figure I could make a little PWM contoler out of PIC microcontroller and have a nice cheap powerfull motor.

    Han anyone seen these motors of have tried anything similar? Or, other dc (or AC) motors used in this fashion for a CNC router/mill?

    I used them once (not for CNC - just as mixer motor). Had a lot of torque but not speed (it's geared down inside the housing).

    Stupid questions make me smarter...
    See how smart I've become at www.9w2bsr.com ;-P

    I am sure you would need to remove the gear box. I am sure it would work fine.

    I wish it wouldn't crash.
