So in class, I am trying to help my engineering teacher. We are studying torque right now, and for a demonstration, we unpacked the Servo gear box and took a look at each individual gear. I could make out small numbers on them, but searching for these IDs yielded little results. I am looking for data sheets on each of the 4 gears that make up the gear box, they are small, white, and plastic, with varying amounts of teeth. Our job is to count those teeth, and also get data on their diameters, etc... but he said it would be real nice if we could find a data sheet on them.

Anyone have any idea which company manufactures these little things? Furthermore, anyone have the stats on them? (Teeth number, diameters, etc)

You probably will not find any data since each manufacturer uses what works for them and most end users don't care whats inside as long as the end result is as advertised. Use a magnifying glass to count the teeth and calipers to measure the diameters.
