    Making an arcade table for my mate's 40th bday, going to buy a decent solid oak (Or wallnut) table 2nd hand and rip it to pieces and reprocess the wood using the router.

    I want to make him something quite trendy looking, 22" lcd embedded in the table top, controllers in a drawer so when it's off it's just a coffee table.

    I have got them on the list of things to do but I think it'll be a month or 2 before I can afford them need to buy the bits for my mates arcade table first so will probably use these couplings till after xmas and look at upgrading then. I can do the motor's at same time and only have to buy the hubs once.

    I think I got the nema's aligned straight enough for oldham couplings.

    I'm guessing I have to use 2 hubs and a torque disc?

    Yes, you need 2 hubs and one disc for each screw/motor. Actually you could also make those on your machine, which could save you the costs. I think they are pretty easy to make.

    Very slow movement with the ramps board ;) I had to explain to my dad that it would run quicker with the better electronics and PSU lol, I was repeatedly homing the Axis which is slow anyway.

    I finally bolted the bed together as well so all 28 bolts are in now, I will add another 4 pieces of 4545 to the bed at some point but bolted in with corners and T nuts because I'm not taking this frame apart for no man lol.

    Well done!
    First movement is always to be celebrated! That is when you start to treat it like a machine rather than a collection of inanimate objects.

    You say this is on a tight budget but it's got the right sort of bits and it will clearly cut stuff out for you. Keep going and you will be rewarded.
