    Does anyone have an ideas on places, other than motion dynamics, where Aussies can get dc motors & gearboxes ?

    Cheers,

    MD has some hardware well suited to DIY, is there a specific reason you don't want to use them, or do you need hardware MD does not carry?

    I've purchased from Motion Dynamics before, well aware of what they stock and happy with the service.

    But that's got nothing to do with the question.

    Anyone other Aussies use somewhere other than Motion Dynamics for motor/box supply ?
