Gear motors to use with Circular Chassis and Encoders

Post by rcwilcox » Thu Dec 07, 2017 5:03 pm

In the Black Monday frenzy I purchased some Circular Robotics Chassis ROB-14339 and Right Angle Gear motors ROB-13258 along with ROB-12629 Hall Effect encoders for my robotics/STEM course I am teaching. Clearly the right angle motors will not fit the chassis without more modification or mount purchase. Even worse, the motors appear to not have the motor or axle shafts necessary to mount the sensor magnets. Can I use the ROB-13302 Gear Motor with this chassis and sensors? The Ardumoto Shield kit KIT-14180 states the motors are not compatible with the sensors, but no such warning is on the motor page.
Thanks in advance
