Missed this the first time around. Have you considered using a magnetic clutch? Take the wheel from a caged gear, make two of them, fill the holes with those super strength tiny magnets, and adjust the number of magnets until it starts slipping where you need it to. Iirc Art made one of these quite some time ago.BBlinds wrote:the main problem coming from the motor producing so much torque that it was breaking the gears when putting the output into stall. With the size of the gears now it breaks the motor on stall which will be controlled by a overload circuit on the electronics side later down the road
