FCG Motor Possibly?

3350 29
Ive been looking for a cheap motor to use to make a FCG, or possibly multiple ones. I came across this motor for $9, its a 5rpm motor....

5 RPM GEAR MOTOR, 12VDC

Will this motor work?

Hey milemarker, I think that was SurplusCenter.com that sold the similar motor for $3.00. I use the ones from electronic goldmine and they have quite a bit of torque. I'd recommend using a wall wart rated at 500 milliamps or more to power it. E.G. has those too for around $4.00. If imagineer's ghost is not too heavy it may work, just have to try it.
I found it:

I still don't understand why they describe the motor as "intermittent duty". They are continuous as far as I know.
