Does anyone know a good cheap source for a Gearhead motor to rotate my dome? I am thinking I will need two, one on each side! Thanks! 8)

I'm using a 2000 lb winch from Harbor freight. It should do the job all by it's self.

Well, I've dug up a 115v DC bodine and I haven't got a clue how to control it! Bodine's site is no help! cwy Any electrically inclined users out there willing to clue me in on a circuit to make it work from 115 AC and do Reverse?
