    Building a slit-scan camera–where to buy electrical components?

    Thought I'd try here as others may have tried the same thing–Andrew Davidhazy, an RIT professor, has plans for a lens-mounted slit-scan box here http://people.rit.edu/andpph/text-slit-scan.html. Does anyone know where I could find the electrical components needed to complete the project (the motor and rollers?) Google hasn't turned up anything that looks right.

    Stepper motors are not smooth, you will need analog motor drive.
    For gears, bearings etc try Stock Drive Products/sterling Instruments... http://www.sdp-si.com/
    For precision gears and timing belts etc W.M. Berg... http://www.wmberg.com/
    Small Parts out of Miami Lakes is now part of Amazon.

    You can also look at RC Hobby and Animatronics suppliers.

    Another place to look for smallish pulleys, gears, and toothed belts - Old inkjet printers. They often contain small stepper motors that can be liberated for other purposes.
