I haven’t been here in a while, I’ve been busy with house things.
Over the last few years I have managed to acquire many Stepper Motors. I have collected just about every size and shape there is and most were picked up from salvaged printers. I have several projects in mind for most of them, but here’s the rub.
Most don’t have the wires. I have been looking for connectors for a while, but without luck. I can make my own cables if I could just find the connectors.
So, can anyone point me in the right direction? There are so many different molex connectors I have spent hours looking at diagrams from various suppliers with no luck. Any suggestions on how to narrow the search would be appreciated.
I also have great difficulty removing the gear from the drive shaft. I don’t have a wheel puller small enough to do the job, and the small ones I have bought are not robust enough to pull the spur gear off the shaft.
So anyone have a way of getting gears off small (3mm to 1/4 inch) shafts without destroying the motor and/or the shaft?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
OK, what I did was contact Digikey and send them the measurements including the pitch as well as several photos of the connector I needed to match and they found exactly what I needed. Thanks everyone for your suggestions.
