Experiment with gear ratios on your wind turbine or other small projects.
Adding gears to your turbine can greatly increase the generator RPM giving you higher power output. The small 8-tooth gear will fit on 2mm driveshafts that are found on lots of DC generators. The gears have a keying feature that allows them to be changed quickly and easily using the included hex locks. The hex lock secures to the 3.6mm hex-driveshaft.

Gear sizes: 64 teeth, 32 teeth, 16 teeth, 8 teeth.
