hi i am trying to figure out the best way to make a small electric motor go foward then reverse on a constant on position. (like a printer would go back and forth). how would i go about doing this?

Hello,

In a printer a steppermotor is used.
By changing the sequence of pulses to the motor the direction can be changed.
On this page from the EDUCYPEDIA there are links to sites and documents about stepper motors.
