HI everyone, building a camera slider here and was wondering if anyone had sources for cogged drive belts and worm screws and a way to attach them to a steppers spindle?

The track is 39" long and the stepper motter is pulling and pushing a dolly along it from one end.

Commercial source would be Boston Gear.

You might also check and see if you have a local bearing and power distribution distributor as they often carry timing belt drive parts, sprockets and chain and gears. And they are often very competitive on pricing.

The Makerslide Store has some inexpensive options.

If you can be more precise as to the diameter of your stepper's shaft you'll get a better answer.
