After some calculations we have decided to use the steel rod that has been used in the bottom actuaters for the robotic arm. How ever the current speed we have obtained is not enough to match the new hamster speeds.
Therefore it was decided to increase the speed by planetary gears. To account for the torque reduction acceleration profiles will be implemented on the stepper motors to minimize the initial torque required. Currently I am in contact with a company to get the planetary gears.

Work to be done in the harware potion
Implementation of the new steel rod on the mechanical arm.
Interfacing plantery gears
Implementation of acceleration profiles on the stepper motors
Ordering the components and the circuit boards for backup (list being compiled by derek)
