I'm looking for a small motor (gear motor assembly?) that meets the following:

- as quiet as possible
- small
- will run off of 9v battery
- can run between 6-10 RPM

this will be used for a small kinetic art project, and will be turning a negligible load, less than one ounce.

any suggestions appreciated!

thanks!

Check out these small gm12 motors a little faster than you want. I have theses and there really quiet and already have a gearbox for 15 bucks.

How about dropping the battery voltage down and running a smaller motor?
