Following the news that Mashima may close down, modellers have been looking for another motor similar to the ones produced by Mashima as a possible replacement. Currently one option is a Mitsumi motor, these motors we have been able to find with or without a brass worm fitted, like the ones shown in the photo opposite.
With this in mind we are currently looking at the possible production of a range of gears, that would mesh with the worm already fitted to the motor. (see below for more details)
As you can see from the photo opposite, from the tests we have done so far there should be no reason why the worm already fitted to the motor could not be used. We would therefore, be looking at producing a range of both right and left hand gears as well as spur gears.
More details will be posted as we progress.
