Wheels for stepper motors 28BYJ-48
« on: February 18, 2014, 06:18:00 AM »
Hello,

I'm looking for a set of wheels for the motors on my robot (stepper motors 28BYJ-48) Datasheet:http://robocraft.ru/files/datasheet/28BYJ-48.pdf

I can't seem to find any product codes for the wheels I've found on ebay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-Two-50mm-Wheels-Stepper-Motor-Arduino-Smart-Robot-Car-5mm-Shaft-/181161705138?pt=UK_Computing_Other_Computing_Networking&hash=item2a2e143eb2 maybe because they said they're made specially for them.

I'm looking for them wholesale, as may produce the robot.

Any help or direction is appreciated
Thanks

Contact the seller directly and ask about samples and wholesale pricing.

Also, if you're trying to sell a robot, you should know that stepper motors are typically not the most robust for robot locomotion. An equal power brushed DC gearmotor with a motor or wheel rotation sensor is likely to cost the same or less, and be more robust.

Thanks for your help. Does anyone know of any other wheels with the same size shaft connector? As the wheels I listed will be a little too dear even in bulk. Does anyone know any good websites with a large range of wheels that trade in wholesale/bulk?

Thanks again

Would these wheels work?  At a price of USD $2.80 per wheel for 50 wheels you probably won't be able to find much cheaper.  They have a slightly nicer wheel for USD $3.25.  Prices are per wheel not per pair.
