Servo Motor Struggling

I am actually not surprised with this result, but I was hoping for good news. The servo motor actually does move the heavy stepper motor 180 degrees, but it is having a REALLY hard time doing it. I can’t count on it working reliably so now I am back to rethinking what to use to turn the main piece.

I thought I would only be able to run one stepper motor from my AdaFruit Motor shield, but it looks like I can actually run two. This means that I will probably just be able to switch out the struggling servo with another stepper. It does mean more money and more time, but at least it is sure to give me smooth and reliable results.
