Feel free to use them in full, or just to extract subsets of information (e.g. recommended CD/DVD motor can be purchased from Jameco https://www.jameco.com/z/RF-310TA-11400-2-5V-DC-Motor-2200-RPM_238465.html)
Is the motor from jameco any better from one pry out of old CD player?
It's probably a little easier to use, but you do need that hub part. Prying it out of a CD player is a little harder than it may seem (heh).
I have a lot of the motors from CD player. But they are not yielding good voltage. So I wonder if these jameco is more efficient, i.e. yield better voltage.
