thanks alex

Taking 18:1 as a standard ratio, count the teeth. High speed gears will have less, high torque more. I don't know which gears are altered or whether it is all of them, but less/more teeth is how it's done, the same as gears on a bike.

Damn difficult to see how many times the motor gear spins though, eh?

How tf are you going to have the motor gear in contact with the bevel gear and see it spinning?
