    Hello,

    Basically the title says it all.

    I feel confident with belt and pulleys now. I know where to buy them, even how to make them, how to select them, the benefit of this or that tooth type, etc.

    I would like the same level of expertise when it comes to gearboxes. In particular planetary gearboxes.

    I have indeed spotted DC motors / steppers motors already sold with a compatible gearbox. But here, i would to choose my own gearbox.

    For starters, I would like to buy a couple of those gearboxes, I'm willing to spend say 200 EUR for a couple of them to analyse and compare them. Then, i'd like to connect them to a couple steppers/DC/brushless motors I already have lying around.
    Basically for learning purposes.

    Anyone has any idea where i can find those ? in europe preferably

    thanks
