    Not wanting your rig to sag when the motors stop has nothing to do with OCD if that's what your referring to.

    I know, I am being a bit cheeky. I still think is aesthetics related though, and you are taking away finer motion and or trying to compensate for improper design.

    I'm perfectly happy with my finer motions as well as my design. But I know based on the many threads I have read you tend to be critical of wiper motors:) I may try the bigger motors in the future but these have been bullet proof from day one. Some wiper motors are better than other, more so when they are new. I did go with the JRK's though based on your recommendation.

    Wipers are fine, I used them on several sims at the beginning. But I wanted more, hence I tried and tested the larger motors with success. I am not against wipers, I only suggest something more powerful, thats all.
    Like suggesting a JRK over an arduino - hbridge set up. Might cost more, but easier to set up for noobs like me.

    Hello! Have a look in the Resources in my signature ;-)
    What is your Hbridge model?

    Hello @RacingMat !!! I am doing a 2dof based on your code and assembly. I used to ride this prototype materials he had at home and used parts store . After testing and work, do my final chassis. I made my bridge h , according to the attached wiring diagram and a logic circuit to connect the PWM signals , with direction signs on Arduino outputs. It's working , but the motors move as if they were fighting ... even when I trigger the output testing .... you can see in the video. My pots are cheap because they do not meet the ceramic here in Brazil ... what may be the cause of non- slip soft motor movements ? Thank you and sorry for my english ... google translator.

    I had a quick look: sliders have a good effect on motors!

    the shaky movement may be due to:
    - bad pot (as you said)
    - bad mechanical link between pot and motor
    - not shielded wires
    - bad soldering
    - ...
