Default DIY Servo

Hey guys,

I dunno if this has ever been done before, but I want to make my own Servo. Not one to put in my car, but rather as a project. It is something that I have been wanting to do for a while.

Anyway, does anyone have, or know where I can download, a pc board for a servo, and components needed to make one.

Thanks guys

A couple of suggestions:

I only briefly scanned this site, but it seems to be what you are looking for.

Also google servo driver. There are lots of sites on the subject, some with small boards and components.
