For those interested in making Gearboxes for Recycled Printer motors. I have posted a video on my YouTube Channel that shows the asseymbly of the gearbox. Unfortunatly, it is not an instructional video, but it does show how to build it.

A new gearbox for the self balancing robot.
The reuse of the pulley system is not working on the robot. Therefore, I started the whole gearbox design for recycled printer motors. Now that there is a somewhat functional gearbox, it is time to return to Tilt! and see how the gearbox can be applied.
Here are the parts! Now, just Engineer a new Motor mount and Wheel assembly!

The New motor mount is wider than the original chassis and will fit 'around' the existing battery box. This frame will take use of the 1cm holes to allow for easy modular construction. The gearbox, has new brackets so that it can be screwed to the new mount. The old wheels are reusable, I will have a friction dependent plug that sets in the hub of the wheel and securely fits the output shaft of the gearbox.
