    Dixon?
    It should take t00 sized holders then, have a look around big tool suppliers like cromwell, msc, buck&hickman, and i'm sure there's many others. They will do either a grooved holder or a morse taper holder that you can fit drills or chucks into.
    Dixon is the recognised brand, like Hoover for vacuum cleaners.

    ebay's not a problem but buy the better quality stuff, if you want your tooling to be repeatable (indexable) when changing tips.

    i bought some t0 holders off ebay, but had to linish the backs to get them to slide into mine.

    So the bits arrived today. only the resistors and cable

    changed the cable, seemed to be a bit better and the steppers ran for alot longer before the PSU cut out.

    Both gecko's now running 2 amps to the steppers so thats fine.

    but it still keeps tripping the bloody PSU.

    So i thought i would do some testing.

    i found this http://www.geckodrive.com/upload/returnedenergydump.pdf

    just wondering if that could be the case?

    Does anybody have an idea how to test the gecko's to make sure there not the problem?

    How do Cooliced.

    Are you running this machine through laptops? I read somewhere that some laptops don't deliver a full 5v pulse to the drivers,not saying this is your problem mind...but its worth checking the 5v rail on the bob underload?

    well tbh i was gonna bite the bullit and use my Main Desktop PC and run the laptop downstairs (more user friendly)

    I have read that somewhere too... hmm. thanks GeorgeD
