Hey Guys

This is my first post on the forums so be gentle :whistling:

Im just starting my first CNC router for wood and light ALU milling around 800mm x 400mm table with probably a 10 pitch lead 5 on the Z

Im looking to import a G540 from Keling as even after import tax it still works out cheaper than buying one in the UK about 200 .

i have been looking around and it seems quite hard to match up some lower induction steppers keeping near the 3.5amps from a UK supplier just wondered what you Gecko guys are using that seem a good optimum match,maybe i am being too anal. (im looking to run at 48v maybe 43v)

This link could be useful if anyone else is looking to import to work out the taxes you can even state a ebay listing number .
