: I Googled but had not much luck trying to find how to make stepper
: motor linear actuators. I only need a few Newtons of thrust (10 plus
: N) and 5 - 10 cm. of travel. Co$t has to be as low as possible.
A 'linear actuator' is usually a stepper with a long, threaded shaft.
Possibly it will include the nut that moves, maybe not. Whare are you
looking for, the whole assmebly ? They show up on the surpluss houses
www.allelectronics.com and www.herbach.com have both listed relatively
cheap stepper linear actuators recently, though they may be both sold out
Yup -- Herbach is sold out of the cheap ones, All has one for $25
There were cheaper ones -- check the other surpluss houses, and keep an eye
Ah -- Marlin P Jones www.mpja.com -- 14061-MS $6.95
