I'm working on a project I'm hoping to mass market that in it's current form uses a brushless motor 18v drill as a power source- something like this, for instance--
Since this is a product for woodworkers, many will already own a suitable drill, and the product is inexpensive, so not having to buy a power source will make it much more attractive.
But some may want to use my product more vigorously and more hours than is sensible for a drill.
I'm looking for help assembling a package of stepper, controller and power supply that will replicate or exceed the drill's power in the speed range of about 10-100 RPM's at a price that won't be prohibitive, and that I (someone unversed in things electronic) can package and document so the average woodworker will be able to assemble and use it.
Or is this better accomplished with a DC motor?
Willing to compensate the right person for help here.
