I have a 12V DC motor that I want to power alongside a 40 Watt incandescent bulb (I might find an LED bulb that works aesthetically). I need to run a single cord to power both. Preferably with a dimmer and power switch in line.
With almost no wiring background, I find the lack of a Radio shack alarming!
What resources are there to understand basic wiring fundamentals and best practice?
What do you guys recommend in terms of attaching wiring to components, splitting the wire, and possible AC to DC conversion?
The goal is to have this plugged into a wall outlet. The motor doesn't need to be 12v. It's just I've only found a 12v that turns slow enough. I need 2 - 5 rpm and needs to be smaller than 2 in in Dia, shaft in center of motor. I can do a higher speed motor if I can find a cheap gear reduction.
Why a lower voltage? It's apparently very difficult to find a wall socket adapter to 12v that isn't huge. 5v motor that can do the job should exist.
If anyone knows a good place for that kind of motor I am all ears :)
