I have three of those tiny motors as well as some others.
They spin way to fast and the shaft is nowhere near long enough to mount anything to.
The speed would need to be reduced but you still run into the short shaft part.
Ultimately, I wanted the turbines to spin at the same rate so the pulley and belt option popped into my mind.
I also thought about gears but they are hard to find and theyíre kind of expensive.
Iíve been looking at a host of Robotics sites but I am starting to get discouraged.
May have to shelve this little project if the little gearhead motors donít work.

PS: The turbines wobble because they are affixed loosely for the test.
