PG-71 MOUNT BLOCK

We are proud to introduce a Modulox mounting solution for the PG71 gear motor. Thou asketh and thou shall receiveth.

This little aluminum nugget from the engineering gods (not actually calling ourselves engineering gods, more like the messengers) adds a few more motor options to your Modulox kits for 2012.

The beastly PG71 gear motor from AndyMark Inc. combines a 71:1 planetary gearbox with a RS-775 motor. A mod is also available to use a RS-500 motor.

But, you ask, why would I need more gearing than 71:1? Maybe you need more, maybe you need less, maybe you need a modular mounting solution with the adjustability to optimize your design. Wedk (we don’t know) and wedc (we don’t care). The point is that this little block is going to take you on an adventure of a lifetime and we’re just happy to help make that dream come true.

Currently, we won’t be selling this as an actual product which is why we’ve made the stp and drawing available. To make your own all you will need is an extended blank block and the appropriate moding tools. Worst case you can send the stp over to FirstCut.com and have your part within a few days.

Check back frequently because we change our minds daily and who knows, maybe we’ll have this guy on the shelves soon. For now check out the pretty pics and cad files. Let us know what you think in the form below!

Motors for Modulox

Featured

There have been a few questions recently about what motors can be used with a Modulox Gearbox.

The current Modulox kits were optimized around mounting a CIM Motor, but thanks to the wonders of engineering (and the great folks at AndyMark Inc.) by using a Fisher Price Motor Planetary or a Double Doozy planetary gearbox you’re open to a host of new motors. According to their website you’ll be able to use both the Fisher Price motor and a RS-500 series motors with those adapters. Standard Servos are also easy to attach using our Servo Mount Block.

There are many motors that will work with a Modulox gearbox and it is possible to design your own mount using the Extend Blank Block.When it comes to custom mounts, the possibilities are endless. There are some great applications where customers have mounted everything from a Banebot Planetary to a AM Gem Planetary. Don’t believe us?Check out some of these pretty pictures.
