I have this gear thing which I am not sure the exact name for.

I have not found a situation where I need it to allow the motor to reach the lens gears.

Can anyone post their situation where a device like this was useful? If not camera setups maybe something else?

Thanks,

Can't think of one off the top of my head, but don't get rid of it. When the day comes you need it, you'll know exactly what to do with it.

I have a box of stuff that I kept for "just the right moment" or "just in case" ...

I had one of those gears, they used to be "useful" with the old FMG or Heden Motors... I really, for the life of me, couldn't think what you would use that thing for with a modern motor or set up... I never used it in all the years I had it sitting in my kit... but then again... we are dealing more and more with prosumer gear... so there might be a use for it. If you have space for it keep it.

Yeah I remember the time when I ripped out the lens mount on a Canon XL-1 with my Preston Motor... good times...

It looks like an idler gear for a Heden M26P motor but the mount looks like it would be mounted independantly of the motor instead of mounted to the motor as normal. The M26P was a horizontal motor and usually needed an idler gear to reach the lens but the standard ones mounted to the motor itself.

Weird.
