    I need to make a circuit that will allow me to turn off, on (forward), and on (reverse)

    This is done with 4 AAA batteries and a DC Motor.

    What parts will I need? What would be the best place to buy the parts?

    Will I need a DPDT switch? What else?

    Also, is there a place that sells small plastic gears?
    Worm gears, pinion, etc

    Is there anything else I would need to make it work?

    How would I wire it?

    Here's a simple schematic using batteries and a DPDT center off (ON-OFF-ON) switch:

    Most DPDT Center Off switches have the common terminals in the center. However, use a multimeter to verify your particular switch before connecting the wires.
