What ratio is this motor gearbox?

With its 100:1 single ratio and working voltages between 1.5V and 3V, this is a great motor for low powered projects. It is only 27 mm x 27 mm x 53 mm (66 mm including shaft) and including a mount it’s easy to fit into small project boxes or conceal on board models. Dependent on polarity, this motor will run clockwise or anticlockwise. With a powerful torque of 1000 gf.cm (0.098 Nm) and 92 RPM at 3V, this is a great addition to any project.

What can I use my gearbox and motor for?

This small metal motor with its built-in gearbox is ideal for projects and application were space is at a premium. The built-in gearbox can increase your turning power (torque) at a reduced rotations per minute from the motor. The optimum ratio for this will depend on your project. Designed to fit into a range of hobby, modelling, R&D, educational and even small scale industrial projects and products. This solidly constructed steel and brass motor is mounted on a 1mm thick steel bracket to prevent movement while it’s working. The motor and gearbox incorporates a high quality three pole motor with sintered bronze bearings and has a 4 mm diameter central output shaft.

(Motor speeds may vary by ±12.5%)

This motor is also available without the gearbox.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little Geared Motor. Bought this small 100:1 Single Ratio Motor Gearbox specifically to power a radar scanner I've fitted on a 1/10 scale Graupner Rivera model boat. I consider to obtain the nearest to the correct scanner rotation speed the geared motor only needs a single AAA 1.5 volt battery to power it (motor is rated for 1.5 - 3 volts so the choice of voltage is yours) .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needed low rev. motor. I wanted to mechanise a model Beam Engine. Your motor arrived as promised and did the job very well. If I was on You Tube I would have sent you video. PS. Micro switch supplied suited admirably.
