Gearing a gearmotor again? Answered

http://www.mcmaster.com/#cadinlnord/6409k15/=ij4q34

This is the CAD of the gearmotor I want to purchase. I need to gear it AGAIN to attain my design goal of 120-150 lb in of Torque (approx. 3:1 gear ratio).

Anybody familiar with this or know if it possible? Any gearboxes to recommend?

Mcmaster-Carr don't let foreigners read their website, so I can't ever recommend using their components for anything. They are complete crud.

For a 3:1 reduction, and these kind of torques, use a nice coarse tooth gear like these from Grainger


I'd use Grainger: their part number
IL954 and IL961
