But then you ask, doesn't this defeat the whole purpose of a servo? Well, no. We just utilize the gearbox, so that we can use this motor as a drive motor for a robot. So now, let's really get started!
Step 1: Ingredients:
- Rotary tool or a utility knife
- Very small screwdriver (phillips)
- Soldering pencil* and solder
- Wire snips
- Needle noes pliers
- 2x 2.2k resistors
Helping Hands (AKA 3rd hand) BTW check out this awesome instructable on making helping hands. Thanks rstraugh!
- 10 minutes
Step 2: Disassembly
Then, using a very small screwdriver, unscrew the four screws on the bottom of the servo. Be very careful not to lose these.
Watch the video for the disassembly of the gears. The top main gear my be hard in coming off. You can see I had a little trouble getting it off in the video.
