To answer a number of email questions:
I am no longer supporting reuse of the aging (15+yr) high inductance motors based on the Oriental PK series. The low current and high inductance of these motors is not compatible with modern digital drives. That why I include motors and gearboxes. Some older model SB frames use 3/8 wide pinion gears. The only source I am aware of for these products is SB and they wont sell them to me. Maybe because their 5A 4 channel controller is $4k without motors.
