    The M542 is a very robust little bugger.

    The 3nm stepper motors will have to be discounted a lot now they've increased in price to make them competitive. CNC4You is currently much cheaper.

    Yes but once CNC4You gets new stock in then his will go up.
    Believe me steppers are set for a BIG hike in price so buy now.

    Much appreciate the input guys, at moment have just got a few spare TBs and will solder them in as required...

    As funds permit will move over to 542 drives, whatever the 3040 is likely to stay a self contained unit, a larger machine will have to get larger everything ;-)

    Probably build cost as neodymium is guess why price of steppers is on the rise...
