Control stepper with directional buttons using a4988 Pololu driver.

I can't take any credit for this project with the exception of making it available to all of you. I searched the web for hours to find a combination of things what would work the way I need them to. This is the end results to get a skate wheel to turn when the corresponding direction button is pushed.

Things you will need:

Arduino Uno or Mega (probably other Arduino's but I'm not sure which).

Adafruit Protoshield or breadboard.

Various connectors to connect power and motor.

Stepper Motor ( Mine is a six wire bipolar but I don't use the center taps. 

Skate Wheel (

Skate Wheel Adapter (

Stepper Driver (

and a power supply that has enough power to power your motor and Adruino.
