I've taken many, many industrial plant tours over the past 25 years where I've seen countless big honkin' motors, so I'm intrigued when I see a motor that's 8 mm in diameter. But adding a gearhead to it is downright mind-boggling for me.

It would have been great if they showed them in actual use instead of just holding them in their hands.
