These standard gearmotors are incredibly tough and feature full metal gears to help you drive wheels, gears, or almost anything else that needs to turn. They have a gear ratio of 1000:1 and operate up to 12 volts and deliver a stall torque of 1102 oz-in. and a max speed of 3 RPM. Each standard gearmotor sports a 6mm diameter D-shaft.

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Noob - You don't need to reference a datasheet, but you will need to know basic power requirements.

Very nice good price. Shipping took awhile considering I am 1 hour away from the location ;). But would buy it again.
I've been running one of these 3RPM motors for a couple of months now and it is great. So, I fired up my 2nd one tonight, and once it encountered resistance there was a snap and the motor stopped. I opened it up and saw that a tooth had broken off one of the internal plastic gears. I'd enclose pics but I do not see a way to do so.
Is there any way to get a replacement gear? The motor started running again after I opened it (probably when the broken off tooth unjammed).
Is there a warranty? Thank you.
Just for a little context - I'm using these motors to make my own walking machine....
