The gearmotors I ordered from All Electronics finally arrived. As
advertised they draw about 600ma without load and appear to have
excellent torque. I am having the wheel couplers and mounting plates
made by a small parts manufacturer and they should be ready in about a

When the parts are ready I will post some pictures of how they go
together. The scheme removes all the weight loading from the motor and
drives the wheels through some sealed bearings.

In a few weeks I won't have any excuses for sitting on my arse :-D
