Does the motor 'stall' or quit at 8" per/min or is the speed maxed out at 8" per/min? How do you know you are traveling 8" per/min? Is the '405 oz motor' a weight?
Inches Per Minute = RPM x Lead
RPM = Inches Per Minute / Lead
Lead = Inches Per Revolution
Anyway, if the if you are traveling at 8" per/min with a lead of 13 threads per inch or (.077 per/revolution), the rpm of the motor would be 103.89
Had to figure this out recently at work too
I would be glad to help you figure it out if you wanted to run faster, you just need a screw with a more aggressive lead, less threads per inch.
