no its not ready yet. I discovered the problem though. I'm using 6 surface mount drivers, and just noticed that I only soldered one side of one of them. haha. It was making intermittent contact.

clearly the motor must be broken, because it could never be something I did! haha

So, I have an ingenious plan to fix it. I'll solder it.

in fairness to me, they never mentioned that requirement in the datasheet.
