A two part question for those who may be able to help.
1. Any tips on the best way to remove gears from small (size 16-23)
stepper motors. They appear to be brass & pressed onto the shaft but
heating them up slightly did not help.
2. Can anyone help me ID a stepper motor. It is an astrosyn stepper
taken from a Epson printer. The model is 17PM K 303 PIL. It has five
wires which has me confused. The resistance between a set of four wires
is approx 3.1 ohms. Each wire measures 5.1 ohms to one common wire (red
stripe in ribbon cable wire). Hmmm. Based on this it is not a 5 phase
motor from what I read so I wonder what it is.
Thank you for your help.
