Looking for a 12volt drive motor, I need to drive two rollers to make my project a one man operation!

Find yourself a junked electric wheelchair. The motors are 24 volt but they have plenty of oomp on 12 volts. Will have a built in worm gear reduction box...If you need to vary the speed try www.electronickits.com for cheap dc motor speed controllers. I use one for a home made autoclutch on my WM..

Hadn't thought about it, as I still use the treadmill...to walk on and the motor is the drag. I'd need to fix up a way to add that drag if I removed the motor.

But, mentioned it as a potential source of a 12 v motor.

I second the car window motors, I've used them on a project at work, running them at 30V to open truck roll up doors.
