Cordless Drill Tear-down, DC Geared Motors

A project log for Modular Continuous Track System

A inexpensive modular tank track system that can be used for robotic and radio controlled vehicles.

In order to test out the tank track design I decided to build a demo robot. For that I needed some powerful motors to drive the tracks. I decided to get two cordless drills and tear them apart. I picked up two Black and Decker GC1200B drills from Amazon for $13 each. This resulted in two DC motors with gearbox and clutch.

Below are some photos of the tear down process.
