    Hello. Is there a circuit I can refer upon, to agitate a stepper motor
    n number of steps clockwise, and the same n number of steps counter-
    clockwise? All very rapidly. Thanks for any advice given.

    A stepper controller chip that has Step and Direction (MC3479?),
    a divide by N counter, a flip flop, and a clock oscillator (555?).

    All of which are better done in software in a PIC or equiv. ;-)

    Find a stepper motor controller that has a "direction" and a "step"
    input. Feed the "step" input with a pulse train, and toggle the
    "direction" input at your wobble rate.


    Good Luck!
