I'm looking to use the arduino to move a stage up and down. I've have a little search and now understand the term for the electronic kit i'm looking for is called a linear actuator. I want to attach a stage on the end of one and control the distance it travels up and down.
I'm very new to arduino, and I've just purchased the starter kit, so please advise taking that into mind. I would greatly appreciate any feedback regarding what actuator to buy, stage attachment methods and how to program my arduino.
