Everyone's favorite motor for indexing, and small jobs in tight spaces, is back with everyone's favorite shaft, 1/2 in. hex!
This motor and gearbox combo originally came from a snowblower assembly, but now has a custom shaft just for FRC. Use our half inch hex hub or a 1/2 in. hex bore wheel to transfer power directly, or sprocket and chain to drive the mechanism of your dreams! The shaft also now has a #10-32 hole in the end for easy hub/sprocket retention.

Great motor for turrets and low speed applications, especially where you don't want the motor to backdrive. Also, it is a pretty compact package that isn't super heavy for a motor/gearbox combo.
With the 1/2 hex output shaft, this a very useful motor/gearbox system for FRC applications.
Easy to get along with
Initially we picked up a couple just to play with it without high hopes. This thing is not fast by any means, but man is it a convenient package. We're using it to index game pieces that have already been picked up. Mounted right to the shaft, we are able to locate this near the edge of our frame where a bag motor and gearbox would have stuck out. Now that is has the hex shaft, I could see us using this down the road a lot.
Not for contact
This gearbox has a steel worm and a plastic main gear. Worm drives are great because they don't back drive but because of that, if you crank on the output, the worm can strip the main gear. So think hard before using this on anything that goes outside the robot.
