    Need to know if we can use these motors and drivers on our arduino board

    So we found a printer that we were able to pull the motors out of and the circuit board they were connected to.
    They are Minebea Stepper motors
    Type: 17PM-K005-P5VT
    No. T9Y15-D
    3.15v
    0.7a
    1.8 Degree

    The circuit board has 2 drivers for the motors
    SLA7024MT(9D28) which some information can be found here: SLA7024MT - DRIVER SIP MOTOR SLA7024MT

    Could we use this setup? or would it be easier to not use the circuit it has and just use a different driver?
    They are 6 wire motors.

    The 7024 is an older style unipolar driver. Your better off using a newer bipolar microstepping driver such as drv8825 or similar. Plenty of companies make Arduino stepper driver shields with the drv8825. Most 3D printers use them.

    As far as the motor, don't know it's torque rating so can't give opinion.

    So would this shield work
    CNC Shield V3 Engraving Machine 3D Printer 4pcs A4988 Driver for Arduino GRBL | eBay

    I mean this listing shows both 4988 and 8825
    Assembled CNC Shield Expansion BRD V3 for A4988 DRV8825 Drivers for Arduino | eBay

    What is the difference or benefits of using the 8825 vs the 4988 drivers?

    I think the 8825 are better but both are good. I use 8825's.
