  • Yes they all spin. The skinny metal shaft is typically used to add a wheel encoder. The wheel encoder allows you to determine how far you wheel has turned. This metal shaft turns at the same rate as the motor and is not effected by the gears. For this motor for every turn of the wheel (the plastic shaft) the metal shaft will turn 48 times (since its 48:1 gear box).

    The other two plastic shafts are to attach a wheel. I only use one of these shafts to attach one wheel. The other plastic shaft goes unused in my robot.

No public wish lists :(
