Worm Gears & Motors
« on: June 15, 2013, 05:11:13 PM »
I'm looking for a worm gear arrangement (28-30 teeth) and a motor (12VDC, 10,000rpm, >26in-oz) to attach the worm to.

Where do I look?

sdp-si.com has worm gears, as does rapidgears.com and probably even mcmaster.com.

If you don't want to attach the motor yourself, you can also look for ready-made linear actuators. Most of them are made of a motor plus a worm gear, already packaged.
