Torque Monster!!
I saw that this was for the automotive industry and new that it would be strong. The torque of the motor is unbelivable. I need 15 ft/lbs and this just may do it. I could NOT stop this output with my bare hand.

Holding power?
I have a few on order. hows the holding power? Looking at the opened view, the worm gear pretty much tells me its nearly locked.

planning on using these for controlling blinds

power supply
In the animation project what did you use for a power supply. I realize it is 12VDC but did you use a converter so you can use 120AC. thanks

Nice little motor
Just finished a holiday animation project using this motor. Works great, lots of torque only draws around 350 mA. I used the small molex connector (brown in color) to mate to the motor connections. I had to drill out the holes in the connector just a bit inorder for the connector to fit. Worked great. No problems with the motor. Looking for another project to us one of these again. For info, a 555 timer will directly drive this motor.

Lots of torque! I made a model slip joint for the splined output from Sculpey clay, molded it, then cast it in polyurethane. I'm using it to open a hidden compartment door in a truck console.
