Jameco Electronics (  has a reversible DC motor that has a
speed of ~2 RPM. It as a 3000 to 1 gear head that is perfect for adjusting
sensors. I use one on my SG sensor so I don't have to lift off the box to
get to the leveling screw. The Jameco part number is 176049 and the cost is
$18.95. I manually adjust my sensor my temporarily connecting up a 9 volt
battery to the motor.
