I thought I should re-post this item with the up-coming Checkpoint Cup.  This is an easy easy setup you can whip up using a yardstick or better yet a 3/4" thick block of wood.


Drill holes 1" apart inline,  insert motors and thread the tiny piano wire sticks  through the terminals and connect to your power supply via alligator  clips.

I especially like the tiny piano wire as the connectors. Never thought of that. I've been doing a similar thing with the block of wood but using a piece of wire soldered to each connection. Mark's idea is much easier.
