Arduino – Joystick Stepper Motor With Limit Switches Salvaged From A Copy Machine

Hey Thrifty Nation!

Here is the first thing I did shortly after getting my first Arduino kit from amazon. If you want the same kit I put a link in the description below.

Using a bracket with some switches on it salvaged from an old copy machine along with a couple components from the Arduino kit I was able to wire up the joystick to control a stepper motor

as you can see in the video, by moving the joystick the stepper motor turns until the paddle contacts the limit switch and will turn no more.  again move the joystick to the other side and  it will go until it hits the limit switch.

This was a lot of fun and a very easy project to do.
