Does anyone know or can tell me the part number of the nexdome rotation gear? It would be great to have number of teeth, diameter and shaft size. I'm using it on a different dome. Have everything I need to build the electronics.

Thanks in advance.

The gear has 15 teeth and has a diameter of 12cm (6 cm radius).

The shaft hole (size) on the gear hub is 12mm.

There is no part number as it's made by Nexdome themselves and I don't think it's being sold alone.

Thanks for the response. I actually contacted them and they sold me a gear and hub.
