  • Hi,

    I’m using a bunch of these Sparkfun steppers with Easydriver, and everything works fine, except the steppers seem to have very little torque; for instance, I can easily make them stop turning by simply applying a little pressure with two fingers; I don’t need it to run a mill or anything remotely that demanding, just raise a 40g weight by turning a screw… Is there any way I can (first) measure the actual torque the stepper is building, and (then) improve it?

    Thanks, G

No public wish lists :(
