Less than $50 will be needed to build this wall-hanging plotter and pyrography (wood burning (drawing on wood)) machine.

Ten geared stepper motors, with ten driver boards based on uln2003 chip, arrived this morning by mail. I tested some of them and they are really excellent little motors. Almost noiseless, a lot of torque, and the whole package for just $20! One of those motors will be used to lift and lower the tool platform (where marker or wood burning tool will be attached).
