What is the easiest/simplest way to run this "220V 30rpm gear motor box"? Answered

Hello, so my electrotechnical (is that a word?) knowledge is about zero point zero, but ALL I want to do is make this motor do its work and rotate his fine ass. That's the only thing, nothing more, nothing less. What is the easiest way to do that for a clueless hopeless piece of scrap like me?

Note: it's important that the motor goes 30 rpm.

I added pics of the motor for clearification. 


PS. I saw this awesome motor pack thing with clear instructions which would have been ideal for me, but the site doesn't send its products to the Netherlands :( link: http://www.monsterguts.com/store/product.php?productid=17760&cat=3&page=1

Ahh thanks! Yeah mine in Holland are different but that shouldn't be a problem. Is it okay if I put it in a 230V mains?

Yep, the slightly over voltage is nothing to worry about, most appliances are rated from 220 to 250 V AC to allow for it.

What kind of fuse would you recommend exactly?

All said is true... You may wonder why three terminals..

The top two (1 & 0) make the shaft rotate in a clock wise direction, while

the bottom two (3 & 0) make the shaft rotate in a counter clock wise direction...

It is a geared motor for 220V AC, so a switch and mains plug should do the trick, plus a fuse of course.
Your link goes to a different, 12V motor.
The resulting speed depends on the load, no load means above 30RPM, full load might result is slightly below 30RPM.
There is no way to make it exact 30 under all load conditions.

Thanks for your answers everybody!

Yeah the link was a different motor, but it also went about 30 rpm (35 rpm to be exact I thought), slightly less or more is no problem, as long as it is around that velocity.

So you're talking about a switch, mains plug and fuse. This means I have to use my wall plug? There are many fuses on the web, what kind of fuse would I want to use? And what kind of mains plug do I have to use so I can connect it to the motor? May be a picture would help

Thank you for your time!!
