Motor holder and attaching it to my slider
#1
I have no access to advanced mechanical machining
And not that good with mechanical side

I have this slider
http://www.amazon.com/DEV-1000-Glide-Gear-Stabilizer/dp/B00PAEO462?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00

what motor should I use and how do I attach it to the slider?
Is the a ready solution for same type of stepper motor?

I have a belt ready though

I am intending to do timelapse with long exposure at night.

Hi Auggie246,
Here are some ideas as an example of motor, holding bracket and pulleys that you could use but there are other ideas as well.

motor bracket

Some screws or nuts and bolts to suit to mount the motor and bracket to the slider. The motor has a 5mm shaft so use pulleys with 5mm hole  to suit your belt. You will need to secure a pulley on the opposite end of the slider to the motor and you could use some angled metal to support the pulley. You will have to do some drilling and metal work to assemble the parts needed so some basic tools will be needed.
Hope this is some help.
Cheers
Peter

Hi auggie246,
I also recommend you look at the following pages. Your slider is very similar to mine. Maybe it gives you an idea.

No, this is the stock plastic enclosure.
I've cut and drill holes.

I think stepper motors can be a good idea as per the description here: An Introduction to Stepper Motors. But since I'm no expert, let's hear what the others have to say about that.
