well what exactly are you trying to do? Do you want positional control or are you interested in the servo just turning?

Why not use a DC motor or just open the servo and apply power directly to the motor leads inside the servo case?
You could always use a 555 timer to control servos also, but servos need a pulse to be controlled ,no straight signal.
Check out the Roboduino, Arduino-compatible board!

Use a Servo Driver. Hook up 6v to the driver, attach servo to it. Use knob to control servo. Very simple and cheap, google Servo Driver and buy one.
