You need to indicate the scale. Earl's links are the favorites for
smaller desktop-size robots, but all of them have scant offerings for
heavy-duty drive trains.
What is the size of the robot you are using? Since you have the motors
and wheels, what size of couplers and gears are you looking for?

the size will be around 24" in diamater and it willbe no more then 3 ft
tall. estimate it will be 80 to 100 lbs when done. Same size as an R2D2. It
will run from a laptop initiallyand then use an EPIA motherboard, etc.
The motors are the 12V variety from Diverse Electronics and it will use
wheels that are 8 or 10 " in diamter. Need large gears for the wheels,
smaller ones for the motor shaft, and for the arm. Also neeed chain. If you
have ever seen the LAZLO from theonespot.com it will give you an idea of
what I am doing.

combos I get on ebay
