Making a chain clock...? Answered

I asked recently about making one of these http://blog.makezine.com/catenna_clock.jpg? here https://www.instructables.com/answers/Does-anyone-have-any-idea-how-to-make-this-see-d/

Re-design gave me some useful advice as to what to use, sadly though, I have no idea where to begin. I know what a stepper motor does, but as far as to what stepper motor to use, where to get one, how to use/program a controller, how to power the motor, etc I have no idea.

If somebody could give me some clues, or just point me towards another instructable that explains any of this I would be most grateful.

Thanks for the help,

Have you looked at the instructables to the right, in the "RELATED" box? Those show a number of projects -- including a clock! -- based on stepper motors.
