    I just collected a small shoebox of steppers from a large copier/printer combo...
    Inexperience bids me ask --- Do all steppers have a standardized hookup, or are they proprietary

    Fairly standard, two types, Unipolar and Bi-polar.
    Unipolar can be ran in Bi-polar mode.
    Depends on the winding count.
    Let Google be your friend.
