    A few weeks back in chat we were talking windscreen wiper motors for something blinky related. I said that i had 1 fitted up to automatically drill plastic jiffy boxes. Tonight i finally got around to uploading it.
    The gaffer is no longer used by the way. The motor is now screwed to the lid of the drill.
    Mr OH and S may not approve of the setup but it's sorta safer than it looks as the current control for the motor means that the windscreen motor is almost at the stall point and it can be stopped by hand effortlessly.

    I use wiper motors for a lot of stuff, but never thought about this one! Interesting!
