    Im looking to build a clock with an arduino and stepper motors. Only problem is I can only find motors that turn at 1.8 or 7.5 or 3.6 deg per step.
    So anyone know of a motor that can go 6 deg per step or 60 steps per rev or 'X' deg per step that can add up to 6?
    I know the first thought is going to be to grab an old clock and rip out the innards, 60 steps per revolution there, but I want to start fresh on this.
    Thanks in advance.

    Or use the 1.8 deg/step and 200 pulses per revolution?

    I thought about that, duke. But while that will give a total of 360 degrees, it won't do so at 6 degree intervals...
