    I think I've archived all my notes for mine.

    They are older round style steppers, and upgrading them would give more better performance, but they'd still do the job.

    Thanks for getting back. Will I be ok just connecting them to up to date drivers and a usb motion controller and leaving the chuck motor running off the inverter.

    They'll be fine with modern drivers.

    Spindle motor will depend on what's fitted. If it's a DC motor, beware that the control circuitry for it's driver will be near mains voltage, so if you want to control the speed from a controller, you'll need to ensure it's got an isolated analogue output.
