  1. Has anyone got any experience of these?
    https://www.cnc4you.co.uk/Stepper-Mo...H401-03-Nema23

    Was wondering if it might be man enough to belt drive my x-axis??? I have no real issue with a nema 34 and 240v drive but would the 4nm nema 23 be faster..? The old issue of wanting this machine to do wood and aluminium! And remembering I have 5mm pitch screws.

    I've got an 8Nm Nema 34 in my X axis and 240V drive but 10mm pitch screws....you could always go 2:1 on the pulleys. I cut plastics at 7500mm/sec and that's plenty quick enough 😁

    How heavy is your X axis?

  5. I'm not sure on the weight, not crazy as it is ali extrusion and 20mm plate - pretty standard L design! It wasn't standard when I started but people keep starting and finishing their builds while I keep trudging along at a snails pace! I was planning on going 2:1. Have you cut much wood - how slow can you go?!

    Too right....had to use the forklift once it was on its frame, far too heavy to lift!
