Please tell your place of residence.
You can get small gears (for use as pinion) from electronics repair shop. And I remember seeing racks in Lajpat Rai, Delhi once.

Cd drive tray ejection mechanism uses rack and a pinion. But it will be difficult to cut off the rack from the tray.

Oh...I forgot..

There is one more rack and pinion mechanism in the cd drives ; for moving the reading lens. I think u can use the rack with its own motor. :idea:

As pointed out by Jabir, you can use the mechanism used in cd player drives for moving lens. You get it cheap, say Rs 10 to 40 max from the electronics junk market.
You need to speak out your location of course for more precise location and price.
