  • An electromagnetic wave with a wavelength in the range 0.001–0.3 m, shorter than that of a normal radio wave but longer than those of infrared radiation. Microwaves are used in radar, in communications, and for heating in <em>microwave</em> ovens and in various industrial processes
  • a short electromagnetic wave (longer than infrared but shorter than radio waves); used for radar and microwave ovens and for transmitting telephone, facsimile, video and data
  • cook or heat in a microwave oven; "You can microwave the leftovers"
  • kitchen appliance that cooks food by passing an electromagnetic wave through it; heat results from the absorption of energy by the water molecules in the food


  • A circular revolving plate supporting a phonograph record as it is played
  • a circular horizontal platform that rotates a phonograph record while it is being played
  • a revolving tray placed on a dining table
  • a rotatable platform with a track; used to turn locomotives and cars
  • A circular revolving platform for turning a railroad locomotive or other vehicle


  • A machine, esp. one powered by electricity or internal combustion, that supplies motive power for a vehicle or for some other device with moving parts
  • (motor) machine that converts other forms of energy into mechanical energy and so imparts motion
  • (motor) drive: travel or be transported in a vehicle; "We drove to the university every morning"; "They motored to London for the theater"
  • A source of power, energy, or motive force
  • (motor) centrifugal: conveying information to the muscles from the CNS; "motor nerves"

microwave turntable motors – Pyle PLTTB1

Pyle PLTTB1 Professional Belt-Drive Manual Turntable
Pyle PLTTB1 Professional Belt-Drive Manual Turntable
Pitch Control: +/- 16%Strobe Light Illumination Weighted Tone Arm Cartridge and Stylus Included Dust Cover Included Start/Stop Button 33/45 RPM Dimensions: 16.93”W x 4.73”H x 14.57”D 110/220 V Auto Switching

An affordable option for listeners who value high-end sound but don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars, the Pyle PLTTB1 belt-drive turntable makes both classic LPs and modern vinyl sound like new. The device includes such features as a weighted “S” tonearm that tracks beautifully, dual playback speeds (33-1/3 and 45 rpm), and an adjustable pitch control of +/- 16 percent. The turntable also boasts a stroboscope lamp that shines on the outside-edge markings, making it easy to make precise speed adjustments. And should you need to quickly stop or start the platter, simply press the integrated start/stop switch and it’s done.
Other features include a nicely balanced counterweight, an anti-skating function, and a dustcover that protects the platter from dirt and debris. The PLTTBI also comes with a cartridge, stylus, and 45 rpm adapter, and measures 16.93 by 4.72 by 14.57 inches (W x H x D).

A crank ghost made from a microwave turntable motor. It is lit by a compact UV globe.
The crypt is a garden shed, The stone effect is a second hand queen size grey sheet. It is stuck to the wall with double sided tape in a brick pattern, with plastic bags stuffed behind each section to make the stones three dimentional. The mortar effect between the stones is just grey paint with sand in it. The skull bat is a plastic mask with the eyes covered from behind and polystyrene wings painted with the same sandy paint. It hasn’t been taken down and has withstood the weather for 3 years now.

Isn’t she (he?) sweet. The turntable motor on our old one gave out, and the part alone was $160. Made more sense to get a new one. Some of it’s new, wonderful features: turntable on/off, no exposed grilles on top (anyone else’s always get gunked up?), auto fan off (you can set the fan to turn off after however many minutes you want), 5 fan speeds maxing out at 300 CFMs!

Electric Motors and Drives: Fundamentals, Types and Applications (3rd Edition)
Electric Motors and Drives is intended for non-specialist users of electric motors and drives, filling the gap between maths- and theory-based academic textbooks and the more prosaic ‘handbooks’, which provide useful detail but little opportunity for the development of real insight and understanding. The book explores all of the widely-used modern types of motor and drive, including conventional and brushless D.C., induction motors and servo drives, providing readers with the knowledge to select the right technology for a given job.

The third edition includes additional diagrams and worked examples throughout. New topics include digital interfacing and control of drives, direct torque control of induction motors and current-fed operation in DC drives. The material on brushless servomotors has also been expanded.

Austin Hughes’ approach, using a minimum of maths, has established Electric Motors and Drives as a leading guide for electrical engineers and mechanical engineers, and the key to a complex subject for a wider readership, including technicians, managers and students.

* Acquire knowledge of and understanding of the capabilities and limitations of motors and drives without struggling through unnecessary maths and theory
* Updated material on the latest and most widely-used modern motors and drives, including brushless servomotors
* New edition includes additional diagrams and worked examples throughout
