I just did another Instructable – Easy, Reversible Motor Control for Arduino (or any Microcontroller) (wow – that’s a mouthful…).

It is the result of my effort to come up with something less annoying to construct than an H-Bridge – using just locally available parts in the process (under $9 at Radio Shack!).

If you order components online – you can get the cost down around $4 each. Pretty good considering it can handle 5 amps.

I find documenting projects online highly satisfying. It lets me set aside worthwhile projects that I’ve gotten bored with – without feeling I’m abandoning them.

This particular Instructable is hypothetically a subcomponent of an upcoming homebrew CNC system.

Stay tuned…
