// by John

    #include <Servo.h> // Use the Servo library

    Servo servo1;  // Creates a servo object to control a servo

    void setup() {
      Serial.begin(9600);  // Sets up Serial library at 9600 bps
      Serial.println("Servo test!");  // Prints to Serial monitor
      servo1.attach(9);  // Attaches the servo on pin 9 to the servo object

    void loop() {
      Serial.print("tick");  // Prints to Serial monitor
      servo1.write(0);  // Tells servo to go to maximum rotation position
      delay(1000);  // Waits for the servo to reach the position

      Serial.print("tock");  // Prints to Serial monitor
      servo1.write(180);  // Tells servo to go to opposite maximum rotation position
      delay(1000); // Waits for the servo to reach the position
