alternative stepper motors?
I recently tore into a couple printer-scanners looking for stepper motors. Unfortunately all I found were some DC motors that seem to be tied into some sort of sensor that acts like a step counter. Does anyone know what they are called and how to use them in place of stepper motors for a CNC machine?
As a side note, I have a very limited understanding of IC function, think of me as having lived a purely analog lifestyle.
