I have a hoverboard motor and just purchased a hand cobbler sewing machine. It’s a $100 sewing machine that you assemble yourself. There’s a great community surrounding the little machine, but mostly they’re focused on improving the machine itself rather than motorizing it. I’d like to add a motor. My goal isn’t to go ‘really fast’ with the machine. Slow and steady stitches, like the second hand on a clock.
I could buy a $20 speed controller for a bike that would work with it. I found oDrive, but don’t know if I can justify $100 on something that I’d use like this. Would the oDrive be worth it? Is there… like a single motor oDrive anywhere?
I’d also take suggestions on specific hardware to use. I’ve heard that slow operation of the hub motors can be difficult.
