    After loads of discussion and web reviews of the Gecko G540 driver, admiring it's compact design and connectivity I have decided ...

    Over the next few weeks I plan to buy one of these drives with (3) 380oz steppers, is there a source in UK, or do they occasionally come up for sale second user.

    I know the chances are slim but if you don't ask .....

  2. I dont think so, and I've never seen 2nd hand advertised....

    Is the Gecko 540 actually different to everyone else's 540 drive?

    Could it just be Americans following the herd on cnczone?

    The 540 is made by Geckodrives and not sold in this country as it has no CE certification.

    I liked the compactness of the unit, plug connections, 4th axis and bob all in one tidy unit. Steppers even come wired with plugs all ready to plug 'n' play.

    Priced up locally (UK) some seperate boards to cover (3) axis and seperate bob and similar steppers etc, worked out not much cheaper.

    Well over the budget i'm afraid, but I really appreciate the information.

    Looks like i'm resigned to a local supplier.

  10. well that was a G450 mounted ina abox with all the trimmings... although that sa lot of money to pay for the box given how much the gecko itself is..
