Hi All,

I just got some great gearmotors from Electronic Goldmine's web site -
http://www.goldmine-elec.com - in the "What's Hot" section.  They're not
really "cheap" @ $10 each but they're very pretty little things, and
quiet.  Made by Hansen Corp.  I liked the first two so well I called
right away and ordered four more.  Casual tests with my Radio Shack DMM
shows .950A @ 6V with no load, about 1.1A with as much "finger drag" as
I could muster.  These should make a nice "Hero 1" sized base move
around pretty smartly depending on wheel size.  EG's service has been
quite good, too, the several times I've ordered things from them, and
they have a Weekly Web Special for us Internet Junkies :-)
