'[OT]: Small plastic gear sources?'

Can anyone recommend good sources for low-cost plastic
gears?

I specifically need a 0.5-mode gear with 60, 90, or 120
teeth for the pet-feeder project, but the only ones I've
found are over US$10 each.  A similar-sized standard part
is a buck or less.  Not sure why the big difference, but
there's got to be a million other sources that may do
better.

Cheers,
-Neil.

Would you believe http://www.pic-design.com ? Unfortunately they have a
high minimum order but you can use them as a component reference.
Grainger will not sell to individuals, only companies.

There are a few gears in the Jameco catalog.
Replacement gears (tiny) are available for Radio Control Servos.
Spend some time in toy stores. There are some neat things that can be
dissected.

Don't overlook using an eletric screwdriver with a length of all thread ro
and a 'travelling nut'.

PS: Let me know if you come up with an actuator suitable for use with
ordinary sash windows.
If they moved easy, I wouldn't need the mechanism though!

Give Small Parts, Inc., a try:

   PO Box 4650
   Miami Lakes, FL  33014-0650

They're often expensive, but sometimes have really good prices.
