Garage Door Opener | DIY | MakerMan

Introduction: Garage Door Opener | DIY | MakerMan

About: my life through projects

this is a modification done to my garage door as the door is quite heavy to open and close, so i hacked it and motorized it with old 2hp single phase ac motor and a reduction gear box which i got from the scrapyard.

i was planing to add a remote to open and close the door but got busy to the end of this project but i will do that soon.

this project took 4 days in total to complete where 2 days was just for wiring as the motor used was a 4 pole single phase motor and there wasn't any info on the internet, so it took some time to figure it out.

if anyone have any question leave a comment.
