Well, a little box with some scary looking little bags inside arrived today, thanks James! I think I will start with the BOB first, looks simple enough. Later in the week I'll move on to the SLAmsteppers. My God, I didn't realise how small they were, they are tiny and should be real easy to fit into any enclosure one can think of!
I'll take pics of my build(s) as I go along so I can put up a thread on the construction of a SLAmstepper powered system, might be of use to someone one day down the line....
