This is very cool. McMaster is not that great as a source for micro-scale components (M2, M1.6, etc). Most industrial supply places only go down to M3. With M2-.4 threaded rod and a 1.8 degree stepper motor you get a linear movement resolution of 2um. A good source for the M2 and smaller stuff is Scale Hardware - got some M2 stuff from them in brass recently for a similar project. http://scalehardware.com/http://scalehardware.com/
