    Hello,

    I have been given some stepper motors which were part of an old printer
    and scanner. I want to do a bit of experimentation with them and havent
    got the equipment to make my own controller so I did a search in on
    ebay and came up with these items number 3871692700, 3872498171 and
    3871716206. I measured my motorsand make the coils to be around 60 ohms
    on one motor and 230 ohms on one and 100 on one.

    has anyone had use of the controllers I looked at and could you
    possibly offer any advice on a good controller to use. I need something
    easy to use just to be able to make some simple moving model parts.

    Thankyou for your time

    James
