      Yeah, the spring is a problem. However, I have made direct-driven leadscrews with hobby motors and 6-32 threaded rod. I definitely wouldn't classify them as "easy" to build, at least without a lathe. But they are fairly cheap.

      The string-twisty actuator looks like it could be a good compromise.
