No Mount Motor

Our motorman, CJ, called this reversible 12-24VDC motor strange, mostly because it has the power contacts mounted on the face, bracketing the 11/16" x 1/8" mostly striated shaft, and has no mounting brackets. But that shouldn't stop a clever person like you. (Hint: it was probably made to fit into a sleeve of some sort.) At 12VDC, draws 100mA no load, stalls 850mA and spins approx 900 rpm; at 24VDC, draws 150mA, stalls 2.2A and spins approx 1800 rpm.  Measures 2-1/4" x 1-13/32" dia.
