stepper motor question
ok, i am trying to make a chain clock, its just a clock with a gear instead of a minute hand that turns a chain with 12 numbers on it. my problem is; the chain i am using is too heavy for a conventional quarts movement. i would like to use a stepper motor but all the drive circuits i find need an arduino. are there any simple circuits i can make, to use a stepper motor for a clock?
i do have some circuitry skills so i can work around some stuff. thanks for the help :)
