Post Gearing help needed
Hi there i have built an awesome smooth 8 foot track system with a dolly that glides, out of high spec engineering parts, i also have a 4-phase Unipolar Steppermotor, run with a stepperbee. Its run from 12volts has 9Ncm(0.9kgcm) holding torque.

i want stop start motion control, for both day and night work.

Basically the stepper motor hasnt got the balls to pull itself never mind a camaera rig, im looking at pulling 5-6lbs.

So the qusetion is does anyone know of a good gear box that will allow me to use these weak stepper motors or do i just upsize the steppers and buy a new controller....i need bags more torque.....Help!
