12mm Hex Wheel Adapter for 3mm Shaft on a Micro Metal Gearmotor.

This version of the 12 mm hex adapter is 17 mm in length and designed to work with 3 mm diameter output shafts, including round and “D” shafts. It works well with our Micro Metal Gearmotors (as shown in the picture above) and Mini Plastic Gearmotors, as well as the other 3 mm shaft gearmotors we carry. The wheel shown in the above picture is a hobby RC wheel that works with 12mm hex shafts; we do not currently carry this wheel or any other wheels that are compatible with this adapter.
