Good buy on a geared DC motor.
One way bearing and sprocket - CAT# CH-10 fits nicely on this motors output shaft after smoothing the ridges. The turntable removes easily. Motor runs smoothly in both directions but a tad noisy. Great geared motor for the price!.

Gearbox ratio
Fwiw, the gearbox ratio is 33:1. Also, I ordered two. One "turntable" was slightly warped, creating a minor wobble. But not enough to warrant replacement.

Works great for robots!

nice little gearbox
pretty easy to completely disassemble by drilling out the crimped part of the screw mounting holes. I removed the dc motor and replaced with a stepper and will be using it for a model railroad turntable. about 7282 steps for 1 rev with a 7.5 degree stepper.

Neat little motor / gearbox
Draws ~ 50ma at 12V under no load.
Draws ~ 100ma at 12V under moderate load.
If you remove the 'turntable' the motor shaft is roughly 8mm, with a flat on one side and 'anti-slip' grooves around the mid section.
