    I am looking for a Bodine 42A3BEPM-E3.
    I have acquired one of these but need 1 more for a 2dof portable rig.
    None have shown up on Ebay.
    Thanks for looking.
    Tom...

    If you can't find another just go with something else as there is nothing particularly exceptional about these Bodines. In my opinion they don't offer much power at 1/4 hp and you can get planetary gearboxes with more powerful motors. But they are enough for a 2dof I suppose.

    Hey Tom, I will keep an eye out. I have three extra but I have not yet decided if I will upgrade my 3DoF (which has three Bodine motors) to a 6DoF yet, using these motors. I am very happy with my Bodine 6DoF flight simpit and the driving games that I have tested with it have impressed me.

    On a side note, that motor in your pictures comes from a company that is local to me ;) I will stop in the next time I drive by and see if they have another in the shop or perhaps one that needs repair.

    Thanks for all the suggestions..
    The one I got looks new.
    I thought it would be a easy find since I found this one only days
    after the start of my search. But its been months with none showing up.
    They are nice motors and your build is proof enough. :thumbs

    They are rather hard to find these days. I was lucky in that I found two on Ebay back in December, @bruce stephen sold me his and @BondeX gave me another.

    @BlazinH I have the rig already built with 24v wheelchair motors that do work but lots of backlash. The Bodine's would be a big upgrade.
