Parts required for Photography Turtable

Hi I am trying to source components for this Arduino Powered Photography Turntable project by Zedd Hiro on Youtube: a 📷Arduino Powered Photography Turntable (PART2) - YouTube

Looking for these two specific parts in Australia to suite
►Nema 17 Stepper Motor 4-Wire 0.71Nm 1.8Deg 1.8A
►24V 15A Dc Universal Regulated Switching Power Supply 360W

Have these covered
►TB6600 4A 9-42V Stepper Motor Driver Controller
►Arduino UNO
►Bread board
►Du-Pont wires
►Braided sleeves
►Heat shrinks

Thanks in advance

Hi Glenn,

We should be able to help out there!
This is the closest I could find to that stepper motor:

The current limit is a little lower, but if you’re worried about torque we have a slightly larger NEMA 23 motor you could substitute that would be OK for your driver (4A is huge)

24V 15A is enourmous. I suspect the guide author just had one of these huge power supplies lying around and used it, then recommended it to everyone else for some reason. Keep in mind that “chopper” stepper drivers like the one you’ve got will only draw a fraction of the steppers rated current at the supply (24V 0.3A vs 4V 2A, say).

Perhaps something like this would be more appropriate:

Avoid working with 240V as this guide suggests for some reason. You need to be a licensed electricial (or employ one) to do work like that. So going for a plug pack instead is a smart move IMO.

Lemme know if you have any questions, and good luck with your project!

Thanks James
