I am new to the hobby and your posts, I am putting together my first layout and think I might put in a turntable scratch built so I started looking for parts then I remembered I had just the other day thrown out an inkjet printer/scanner and luckily it was still outside, I brought it back in and stripped it down.
I found all the motors, gears and belt drives I could possibly need to power the turntable and several more besides, this printer turned out to be a treasure for the hobbyist and I thought I would share it, I have posted to you tube (not great video but it does show what I found).
happy for you to share and hope you and others find it of use.
A big thanks to Wayne – I thought it worth posting because as Wayne says, you could create all sorts from these motors. And I know how you all like tinkering with stuff.
That’s all this time folks.
Please do keep them coming, and don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide if you want to get going on your layout.
