    You are going to have to tell us much more before we can give you any helpful answers. For example: What is the power supply? Why can't you get the necessary low-rpm torque by gearing down a higher-speed motor? Is the demand on the motor continuous or intermittent?

    The more we know about the problem you're trying to solve, the better the answers you'll get.
