    Nice, but i think you need to have more than "some knowledge" to be able to do that :) I thought it would have a small "potenciometer" like other power supplies and you'd only need a small screwdriver...

    I like those motors, especially because of the axle that they bring, very easy to place some connecting rods and that they never move, the problem with the wiper motors is the axle, sometimes it is difficult, in general it is a very easy assembly, very Well explained, I like it a lot, I use windshield wipers and the hardest thing is the connecting rod issue.

    I honestly use ibt2 plates without diodes, and they have been without problems for years, I even burned a motor from heating up due to intense use and absolutely nothing happened to them, they are the best quality-price plates, that if I use a switch for each motor, airplane type, no mushrooms, the system is quite safe, very good software

    This project of all those that I have seen in the forum, I think it is the easiest to carry out with a spectacular finish, very easy, all very well explained, the issue of the potentiometers with the straps saves you space on the sides, really , I think it is the best in terms of ease of assembly, and not expensive at all with the trim level, one pass, great.
    I
    Even if you want to do it in wood, you just have to buy those pieces of aluminum profiles and anchor them to the wood, or another type of structure, great the idea is great for those motors.

    Hello what is the model of your timing belt you use to attached the motor and 5v hall sensor?

    Hello, very good, thanks to your video I have started my project, I will try to do everything by hand, and I have electronic components from other projects, for example I have two motors at 24 v 200w 60 rpm, with the integrated sensor, and I have to test whether Will they work with the arduino smc or will I have to vary sensor voltages since the arduino runs at 5v, and the sensor I think at 12v.

    I give you my congratulations, I love your 2 dof, if I do not get my own, I will copy yours a greeting
