Code:
for(pos = 50; pos < 1; pos += 1)  // goes from 0 degrees to 180 degrees
Why bother with comments?

When I unplug from the USB and use a 9V
I hope the rest of the sentence says "2 amp regulated power supply" and not "smoke alarm battery"

I keep getting errors
Which are..?

It should give me float points in the degrees of sweep, no?
Why?

You say "cheat", I say "sensible precaution"

This looks familiar

Try taking multiple readings and averaging.

What don't you understand about binary?

is there any coding or libraries that might help me improve the code?
Quite possibly.

I'm just wondering how mister Sarcasticus and mister "short and bold response" have such high karma's.
Me too.

I'm not a fan of karma - I'm the sarcastic sod who writes terse replies (not very karma-worthy) and chides noobs for not using code tags, but mops up after spam raids (often before anyone else reports it) and moves misplaced posts to areas where they might attract more focussed attention.

No! I am Sarcasticus!

I think sometimes that a lot of frustration comes out of the member rating system.

If someone asks a question, I tend to ignore their indicated ranking (newbie, junior, full etc) and try to probe their level of expertise.
Sometimes the probing is taken as condescension (by members with more experience than their ranking would suggest) and sometimes triggers an adverse reaction - "if I knew that, I wouldn't be asking the question - I'm a noob".
Both reactions are equally valid, and I try to tailor my responses from that point onwards.
Sometime I fail.

(My ranking was once "newbie", but it just meant I hadn't been a forum member for very long)

My wobble problem manifests as readings varying between say 56 and 58 
Not sure what you mean by "wobble" (or SICK NT6 for that matter, hint), but +/- 2 counts on a ADC reading is about right.

I have no idea - you're the one with the hardware in front of you and all the debug tools.
Maybe something to do with printing when you should be looking for clock transitions?

Someone has booted Linux on an AVR by writing an ARM emulator (it takes about two hours to boot to the command prompt) and storing the image on SD, so I'd say, yes, it is feasible.
But not at all sensible.
