    i have looked into the stepper motor I assume you're looking for the value of the stepper over the actuator. I agree a stepper would be more economical but I would anticipate more problems with the stepper vs. actuator. Those actuators are built precisely for what I am doing.

    I do like the simplicity of the actuator approach but at least for me compartment space is an issue and so far the smallest actuator cylinder i've found is around 10-12 inches. Almost every one i've found has a more "industrial" application or high torque which may account for the larger size. It seems like somthing ment for a small robotic applicaton would be ideal.
