June 28th, 2020 - Planetary slider


 So, how powerful is this planetary slider? Will it be enough for a dop+rough stone?  you might ask yourself.



Well, if it can push a 200+ gram thing like this Al U-beam with an iPhone 4 on top of it (and some change) with friction on my well-worn desktop, I think it does make the cut!



Actually pushing at maximum speed, which is quite amazing for such a tiny (5x4.7mm) stepper motor. I think we

definitely have a winner here, both price-wise, precision-wise (see previous post), and power-wise! "
