Help needed for the Laser Engraver 1.0

Well, it seems locating BROKEN dvd drives is a lot harder than I thought!

Well people…finally (I simply could not give up on searching) I found what I was looking for!!! (insert manly triumph comments here, altough it was sheer chance…)

First of all, I want to thank everybody who offered their help, dvd drives and info. Sincerely, THANKS!

Now, what did I find? I found a chinese page,wich sells the aforementioned motors I needed, but the shipping was $36, more doubling parts price…

Fortunately, I saw they had for sale stepper motor chips for repair, and looking for datasheets on that, I found by chance a UK shop, with the same prices and free shipping!! Wohooo!!.

So I didn’t think twice an bought:

The most promising is the PS2. it seems to have low pitch thread. but I bought 3x each, just in case ^^.

In the end, it seems that my laser engraver will be a complete success ^^ i’ll keep you informed of the advances.
