    No idea, it came with a 220v PSU not that that means diddly squat - so if I tear it down to the point I can reach the screws how do you do measurements, the same as measuring the pitch on a normal screw?

    Ok

    200/ (52-3) x 100
    or
    200 / 49 x 100 = 408.16

    where 200 is the original steps per and 49 is the output cut measurement minus the tool diameter, multiplied but the input cut measurement..


    is that a Bit easier?

    Its a brain doo'er i know

    LOL

    Yep 3 to a cm the biggest problem with trying to measure the X is it is fully enclosed and I'd pretty much have to tear it apart to get to it but I shall attempt to get a close as damn first :)
