some light bedtime reading...

Abstract
This tutorial covers the basic principles of stepping motors and stepping motor control systems, including both the physics of steppers, the electronics of the basic control systems, and software architectures appropriate for motor control.

Hi Irving,

Very useful. I think anybody new to this should really read up on the subject. Most I think are like me and got it right more through luck than judgement which is stupid for such a fundamental part of the system.

Thanks for the link!

Worth reading to get a better understanding of steppers but things have advanced along way with digital stepper drives so not all is relavant to today drives.
