Finally get my slipring from ebay! It's going to connect my 6 stepper motors and arduino mini.
I didn't like the many wires hanging around.

Making room in the base, I have a motor with position sensor and feedback potentiometer wired, now it's time to add the slipring to it : -)

Build my slipring into a ring that can be attached on the turning base.

Attached pcb and connectors on it

6 steppers and 0V,5V,TX,RX for my arduino mini connectors, just to add all connectors in the controller box, very secure work adding all these small pins.

My helping tool :-)

Finnished! every wire has his connection, hoooraaayyy.

No wire to find! That's what I wanted!

Up to the next part, see ya!
