[21:17:08] <AchiestDragon> k
[21:17:49] <AchiestDragon> bookmarked the page , shame the £120 did not include the motors
[21:17:58] <robin_z> yeah
[21:18:05] <robin_z> but
[21:18:22] <robin_z> youm might get �75 for your 3 with drives on eBay ..
[21:18:29] <robin_z> if your conscience will let you
[21:18:34] <AchiestDragon> 3 steppers is £114
[21:19:00] <robin_z> well,
[21:19:01] <AchiestDragon> the steppers i already have will get used for someting else
[21:19:17] <robin_z> well, heres an idea
[21:19:27] <robin_z> why not buy 1 motor, 1 drive
[21:19:43] <robin_z> then, compare the performance to your current setup
[21:19:59] <robin_z> persoanlly, I think you'll sell them next day
[21:20:43] <AchiestDragon> could get the motors , and build drivers ,, bipolor though , i know how to do unipolor ones but going to have to think about a bipolor design
[21:22:28] <AchiestDragon> i got an item up on ebay , it ends at 3am sunday , its at £100 already , so thats the funding at the moment
[21:22:49] <robin_z> right
[21:23:07] <robin_z> the L297/L298 chips make a great cheap bipolar drive
[21:23:18] <AchiestDragon> if it goes for enough then i may get those with the controler , but expect it to be £120 to 150 at the moment
[21:23:44] <AchiestDragon> k
[21:23:59] <robin_z> haow far is llanelli?
[21:24:04] <robin_z> 30miles?
[21:24:27] <AchiestDragon> the 6.50 carage in the steppers is ok
[21:24:47] <AchiestDragon> so may just get the steppers from him
[21:25:35] <robin_z> oh, thatreminds me, my mate in north wales just did something *horrible* to his new baby ...
[21:26:44] <robin_z> he named it "Effrog" ... how cruel is that!
[21:26:52] <jmkasunich> sick
[21:27:54] <robin_z> mind ewe, he already has a daughter called Ffreuea or similar
[21:28:02] <robin_z> (pron Freya)
