Ok to use DC motor w pulse bit + dimmer (poor man's stepper motor)

Hi all,

I’m exploring creating a simple “stepper” in thid fashion:
pulse bit (high frequency setting) -> dimmer (just enough to turn the motor) -> DC motor.

It seems to work fine for my purposes. However, is there any concern about damaging the DC motor when used like this? I need very little torque output from the DC motor.

Sounds like a cool solution!

I verified that there is no danger to the module when using it like this. Have fun!
