    Would it be possible to use the electrics and stepper motors from the chinese router? And I machine all the brackets to make it fit?

    Have you bought a Chinese router already? If not, don't - it is relatively straight forward to buy the necessary stepper motors, stepper drivers, PSU and break-out boards for a lot less than robbing bits from a router. And the Chinese electronics are often considered inferior to alternatives.

    No not bought one. I will take your advice and not buy one though, all the parts you just mentioned are they the only electric parts I need?

    At this point I'm going to advise reading and researching the build logs on this site and getting an understanding of what is needed to convert to CNC or build a router from scratch. You need an understanding and that can't be spoon-fed.

    No, the steppers may be OK, the rest would be some of the first stuff to go in the bin when getting one to function properly.
    You think that's too expensive? You're not a Model Engineer are you? :D
