I read the Motorized Grain Mills: Time to show them off! thread, and I really like the direct drive (gearmotor) options I was seeing.

I really don't know that much about gearmotors.

Would this be the right kind of motor?

Would I just wire it up to a (light) switch to turn on and off?

Use a Lovejoy shaft coupler to attach mill to motor?

Thanks

Chris

I just bought a gearmotor to convert my mill. I only paid 40 bucks at http://surpluscenter.com
