Step 4: Add the Motor

The largest gear that moved along grooves in the disc tray hung out further than the other gears, so I glued the spindle directly to that gear. I also drilled a small hole in the side of the black base and the electric motor casing to tie down the motor and keep it from just spinning on top of the ice cream maker. It would probably be better to actually secure it down, but this worked and I went with it.

..Can I put the motor directly without a gears?

It would turn way too quickly. Keep the gears, they're always there to slow the CD tray down.
