Default Pinion gear storage...

Pinion gear holders.....

Did you buy one, make one ....or do they roll around your toolbox?

I had a Pargon one I sold long ago, and just re-bought 15 > 26 (12 total) and I need to put them on something.....currently they just sit in a top part of my toolbox top that pops open.

i use the clear plano boxes.. they are made for fishing stuff. the clear lid is noce so that you can mark them by size and never have to fumble around to find the right one..

+1 on the RPM case. I have 3 of them for all my different pinions. And I need another one. They're awesome. The come with little stickers to put inside the case to plan to where you are putting the pinions so you know which one you might be missing.

are there general measurements as far as pinions are concerned? like the center hole, diameter, and maybe like an extrusion on them?

+2 on the RPM cases. Have been using one for about five years now. Case is holding up very nicely and as mentioned before they are customizable with labels to identify where each one goes for number of teeth and handy gearing charts for 48 and I think 64 pitch. I really have to stop the run-on sentences.

Running 1/10 scale pinions are all a common shaft size. They will all fit onto a standard 540 size can, brushed or brushless.

A 48 pitch 25 tooth from robinson will be the same diameter as a 48 pitch 25 tooth from APS.

Hey RPM case fans, how big of a 48 pitch pinion will they hold? Thanks.

I know you asked for 48 but I can easily get all of the spots full with the biggest being a 45t 64p. Of course I can't get them all in sequentially.....

That RPM case looks nice. My old Pargon unit would hold the pinions, but do nothing for protection in the toolbox....I used to keep them in a separate drawer so not much of a real issue.
