Synchronous Motor

I have an old sync motor which I need some info on. Hopefully someone on
this list can help. It was taken from an old strip chart recorder. This is
the motor that moves the paper. Although it only rolls paper on a roll, it
goes through MANY gears to reduce the speed, so should have some power.

The label reads as follows:

Leeds Northrup Philadelphia
Motor Manufactured by
General Electric Company

115 volt     60 Hz
1 phase      1800 RPM

Synchronous Motor
L&N No. 17-2-0-30

It is about 4" in diameter and 4" tall (excluding shaft).

Would this be of any use for a rotary gap?
