    I would like to power up 2 gearmotors and keep them synchronized. Any simple
    solutions?

    Thanks

    Chain and shafts?

    My first problem with that is if one motor is a bit faster than another and
    I'd guess the slower wouldn't be too happy.

    My second problem is I need to relocate one motor (same horizontal plane)
    while one stays fixed for various applications thus chains would be a
    problem

    Thanks for the response

    (please do not toppost...)

    Explain more about what you want to do, or what you are trying to do.
    There has to be something between the two motors (a belt, product,
    line, something) or you'd not care if they were syncronized. Say it is
    a conveyer belt... You could monitor the belt's tension between the
    two motors, if too tight, speed up the feed, if too loose slow down
    the feed.
