Hi all, I am working on electrifying my adjustable standing desk. Luckily it goes up and down via a single crank so I am hoping to drive it with an electric motor and a system to set some height presets and such. I am struggling to find the motor that I think I need. 


Min RPM: 60, 100 would be nice. 

Rated torque: 15 inlb at least, double would be nice. 

Encoder included would be nice, I think this would be helpful for the control program for sure. 

This is roughly .047HP or 35 watts. 

Are there any places online that you can think I might be missing? Looked at mcmaster, amazon and grainger. Maybe my query was bunk here or there though.
