Where to buy good Gearhead Motors?

(1/3) > >>

Hey guys,
I just wanted to know if anyone knows like a reliable brand, or online store to buy decent but cheap DC gearhead motors. I have always used servos in the past, but this time I'm looking for a little more power and speed than a sub $40 servo can give me. I'm looking for a gearhead that has pretty close to 160-200 RPM, and rated above 100 oz/in torque. Also it would be nice if it was rather quiet, I have a gearhead that practically wakes the dead with all its screeching. And yes I have tried looking on google there are just so many places and brands to chose from, I'm overwhelmed  :o

Here's a reliable site I readily use:

And I put in a search on Thomas Register and got a list of 25 gear motor manufacturers.  Here they are:

Maybe one or two could prove some use.

Good luck!   ;D

For building small robots, Lynxmotion is hard to beat. If you're in Canada, you can get most of their motors at http://www.robotshop.ca

Also, this dosent have to do with motors, but I dont want to start a new thread- Waht are your opionions on Li-Ion-Poly batteries. Do you think they are really cost effective vs. a bunch of 1.2V NiMH batteries?
