Micro-Motor Durability?

I have purchased a number of micro-motor pairs for testing a robotic creation that I have under development.

The problem that I have is the hardware. The brass colored gear housings are coming loose and the long screws fail to re-tighten.

Today, the robot tilted to one side and landed back on it’s wheels and the housing came off.

Is it possible to get a slightly longer screw for these motors?

Are there any other options for repair? Like super-glue :frowning: or something?

What is the next step up for durable motors…


Hi, Thad,

We don’t have any parts available for the gearmotors. I think this is the first I’ve heard of this kind of problem; how do you have them mounted? Can you post some pictures?
