Hi, some newbie questions follow. I'd very much appreciate any help / advice you can provide!! I'm looking to make a simple linear actuator to move my DSLR Camera back and forth over a distance of say 20cm.
Though I'm not sure how I would attache my camera to it. Also I'd need a longer shaft. Do you sell longer shafts or can you advise where I could get one? Also would this motor be strong enough to move a digital SLR camera plus lens? If not can you advise on something that would be? Thanks Heaps!!
Thanks for your question Glenn, lets see how we can help!
The easiest way to build one of these would be with the Actobotics Channel Slider Kit.
These are currently out of stock, but should be available again by Sep 5, 2015.
In terms of extending a servo shaft, what you need there is a Coupler or Collar.
We have a whole heap of these available here: http://littlebirdelectronics.com.au/collections/couplers-collars
As always, please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or queries whatsoever!
