Never pass up an oportunity to take apart a printer or scanner
I got this out of a fancy Canon combo printer/scanner/copier/fax machine thing at the temporary home of Ad Astra Community Laboratories in Topeka.
By the way, NEMA stands for “National Electrical Manufacturers Association” and the number that comesafter NEMA refers to the width of the motor. For example, a NEMA 16 motor is 1.6″ by 1.6″. A NEMA 23 motor is 2.3″ by 2.3″.
The NEMA creates a lot of standards for electrical manufacturing. They’re all very important in one way or another and also very boring.
