"Product Usage:
All AndyMark gearboxes require grease for proper operation and long life. We suggest using our red tacky grease, am-2768. We also encourage that the user powers the gearbox continuously for 30 minutes without grease to allow the gear teeth to wear in. While we do design with short run times in mind, this 'run in' period for smooth gearbox operation, is recommended. Once this is completed, thoroughly grease the gear teeth periodically to ensure smooth operation.

Product Overview:
This 20-inch-long Nano Tube houses two complete gearboxes that drive 3 output shafts. Each has the same gearing and shafts as the Nano with 500 Key Shaft. Toughbox Nano Tube accepts two 2.5 inch CIM Motors. Hardware is included for attaching two of these motors.

This product is intended to be used as a complete drive module for the side of a 6-wheel-drive robot. The center shaft is slightly lower than the two outer shafts for better turning. A second tube is to be used on the opposite side of the robot in order to make the complete drive chassis. This same Nano Tube could be used for a 4-wheel-drive robot by removing the center shaft.

4 Day Beta Bot October 12, 2012
Reviewer: Peter Randall from Philadelphia, PA United States  
We set about creating a 4 day wonder for an off season event to introduce our new students to the FIRST experience.  Key to the success of this project was the quick delivery and flawless performance of the Touhbox Nano Tube transmissions.  As always, AM came through with flying colors. We couldn't have done it without them.
