    suggestion for small, quiet, slow motor?

    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?
