    Might look into a worm gear translation. That will drop the speed of the final drive while letting the motor run in it's efficient range. I still think nylon is your best bet. It is produced with petrolium. When it heats up it emits an oil based self lubricating film. I wouldn't rely on material recomendations ftom unqualified individuals.

    And i wouldn't rely on recommendations from people called todd :-)

    Is that enough tit for tat ?
    Or do you want to continue the childish name calling and snide comments ?
