Hi i have a stepper motor OKI EM-295 http://www.ebay.com/itm/Epson-P113A-Part-Step-Motor-OKI-EM-295-/350394397685

Problem is i can't find any information regarding this motor. Is there any way for me to determine the degrees per step of this motor?.. I already can control it via a motor driver and arduino but i need to know what is the degrees per step of this motor. Hope someone can help me.. Thanks in Advance

Happy New YEAR!!!

Simplest way is to put a small piece of tape on it and give it a set number of pulses and see if you get a full revolution.
There are a limited number of steps per rev that is made. The most common ones being 200 steps, 100 steps or 48 steps per revolution. One of those should be spot on.
