The form size also needs to be considered. If it's a 24" form the 4-rpm
motor will have the wire rolling on at 5inchs per second. But if it's only
a 4" form the wire speed would be less than 1 inch per second.

Before you spend too much effort on this let's think it all the way
through.  If you're winding a 1000 turn coil at 4 RPM, 1000 turns will
take 250 minutes, over 4 hours.  I suggest using a variable speed drill
running off a variac, and just tighten the chuck onto your 5/16" rod.

i have a small motor that is like 2 rpm and one that is 4. the problem
they only have a small 1/4 inch stub that comes out of them. how would i
use that to hook up to a 5/16 rod thats holding the coil?
