I used two old 5 1/4" floppy drives to build a pan/tilt control for a webcam. Those drives used nice little 5V stepper motors to move the read head back and forth. I used one drive fairly as-is, connected to a push rod that tilted a platform up and down that the webcam sat on. I removed the stepper motor from another and used it to rotate a turntable that the whole thing sat on.
That was all hooked up through some transistors, driven from an 8-bit shift register, hooked to the LPT port and controlled through Python.
This was all back in about... 2000?
