Hi Richard

Leggo make a wheel 56mm x 26mm with a good rubber tire, about the size you want. iNEX make a plastic adaptor that fits the Leggo wheel very nicely to adapt them to their gearboxes.

I've built up a hybrid bot using this combination and I'm very pleased with the result.

If you want to try the Leggo wheels then all that you need to do is check to see if the adaptor will fit the stepper's shaft with or without any modding.

I'm wondering how to get hold of some wheels to attach to stepper motors to
construct a micromouse. The stepper motors are about 42mm square and 32 mm
deep. So I'm thinking that 50mm dia wheels and with rubber or plastic tyres
would be about right. I have access to a lathe and could turn up some out
of aluminium. Anyone know where I could get hold of suitable aluminium rod
or plate? I've been looking at the Nalco site and they have 50mm dia rod
which weighs 5.3kg/m and as their minimum cut length is 1m its probably
going to be pricey. Anyone have any suggestions for alternatives?
