i know u already picked pest answer but it is a AC motor 120v im assuming u got it out of a oscillalating fan
if u can get the gear spinning it produces 120v AC with medium amps
you can power small thing such as led xmas lights small fans anything with a wall wart and they work great for mini emergency generators

Thats a motor that is used to rotate the microwave plate. Its either 120v or 60v

I have a motor that looks exactly like that. I recently removed it from a cheap VHF/UHF antenna rotor. I didn't like the rotor turning because the cheap controller had no indicator telling which way the antenna was pointing. So i removed the motor. The reason the shaft will not turn is because the motor is "geared down" to a slower speed so the antenna turns slowly. I am not sure what kind of voltage powers it. I tried DC and it didnt work either.

Oooo blurry picture I agree mains motor.
Its a mains-synchronous motor for a bet. It needs AC, and it probably needs it at mains voltages.

do you mean belt instead of bet and if bet then what kind of bet. So the reason why i cant turn it by hand is because i am not using enough power.
No, I mean I can't guarantee what it is -the picture is way too out of focus to be sure. If its the kind I think it is, there is a high reduction gear box in the case.
