How to find INFO on stepping motor's?

Hi Group
I'm new to the group and want to build my first CNC. I have two real nice stepping motors and would like to know about them on the back of the motor it says Sanyo Step-Syn Stepping motor Type 103-820-28. DC 4.5 Volts 1.4 Amps 2 Deg/Step. IBM P/N 6837866 LOT NO.8229 Sanyo Denki CO.,LTD.
It's A 6 Wire Motor i did check them out with a ohm meter they have two coils 6.2 ohms each with a center tap 3.1 ohms
They look like nice motors just not sure if i can use them for a small CNC.But i sure would like to try using them. All so i would need a circuit board to run them?
please i need your help.

Allan,

Those may not be the best motors to use. The only information that I could find on the Internet stated those motors were used by IBM in one of their printers and that that design was twenty-eight years old. Back then, the motors were the round style, meaning that they had much less torque compared to the modern square type motors.

New motors from Oriental Motor cost between $150 and $260, depending on the model and whether they are geared or not. Besides the motor, you will need a stepper driver (Gecko G203v), a power supply, software (Mach3), and a breakout board (PMDX-122). There is a lot of information on the forum about each of those parts.

If you need help getting started, send me a private email, and I'll try to help you get started.
