Im working on a small table top machine, and I need a motor to run two things at once, but at different speeds. Because of the movement of the machine, the best solution is one motor, two separate motors is not really an option. So I thought of a motor with a through shaft, but the shafts need to be perpendicular to eachother, and the one end needs to run slower and have more torque, so I figured that a 90 degree gearbox would work. However, I have run into a problem finding one like that. The one end with the gearbox only needs to run at about 30-50rpm, and the other end does not matter as much. If anyone could point me in the right direction that would help I have hit a wall on my own.
