In general, the Linistepper and SLAm drivers will do best with strong low amperage, higher voltage motors. E.g. a 12 Volt, 1 Amp motor is better than a 1 Volt, 12 Amp motor. Remember: For these drivers, only Unipolar (5 or more wires)!.
The THB6064AH driver is a Bi-Polar driver which will work nicely with the faster, high amperage, lower voltage motors. Remember: For Bi-Polar drivers, you can NOT use 5 wire motors; 4, 6 or 8 only.
You can generally find these on ebay: > 100oz-in (but avoid knock offs from China), > 200oz-in or Google >100oz-in, >200oz-in. or, in the table below, click on the "Find For" link to search for that motors mfgr and part.

Some of the motors below list the models of printer, copier, fax, etc... where they might be found. If you ask around at computer or office equipment repair places, and offer to remove old dead equipment for them (be sure to check with your local disposal agency for how to do that properly and legally first) you may be able to score some nice motors for nothing. Some places will even let you browse what they already have on the trash list or let you know when they receive another one on the list. Be sure to let us know if you find something that isn't already on our list by filling out the form below? Of course, dismantling equipment does require care: Wear gloves, and watch our for sharp metal frame edges and broken bits of plastic. Also keep away from toner; wear a mask if it's been spilled.
The NEMA number is about 10 times the size (diameter or side) of the motor in inches. E.g. a NEMA 23 motor is about 2.3".
