    Making your own is quite simple as long as you do your sums first. Just make sure you get the voltage right and have a bit of spare "currant".

    Confirming PSU spec for steppers.

    Its a bit long but everything you need to know is there. Then come back and ask about anything you don't understand.
    Hi Irving,

    I read the all thread,
    But honestly speaking, this thread is not for the "noobs" like me..,
    I read in the thread that you have 30 years experience in the electronics, so for you it's everything simple like a 2x2=4, but not for me Lol

    You think that you have enough patience with me if I choose DIY route?

    I'm sure that if you ask nicely, one of the guys on here will make you a PSU for cost price + a couple of beers.

    Wouldn't be the first time ;)

    Get the bits sent to me and I'll solder it up for you - it wont take more than 15 minutes. In fact I think I have a spare new 500VA toroidal transformer... 4 motors at 3.5 amps, so you need about 70% of 4*3.5 which is 9.8 amps. 9.8*50V=490VA ... so the transformer I think I have is perfect.

    Jonathon, wouldn't it be easier for you to buy the parts, make the PSU and send him a paypal invoice? There seems to be a serious lack of decent quality PSU's on eBay...

    Thank you very much Jonathan for the offer!
    But I like to learn new things, so I'll try DIY route., just in case if Dean lose his patience with me, then I'll be back to you with big case of beer and I ask you to do it for me.

    Thank you!

    Hi Dean,
    I'm ready to go DIY route, when you have time can you point me out where I have to look and what I have to buy for the PSU?

    Thank you!

    The mains things are;

    Capacitors:
    SNAPIN:4700UF/63V Panasonic (ECES1JU472N) 25.5 X 50 | eBay

    Transformer (other places have them too):
    Toroidal Transformer 500va 0 50v 0 50v

    Rectifier (excessive rating, but means you don't need a heatsink so it's easy):
    KBPC5006 Bridge Rectifier 50A 600V

    Plus you'll probably want a fuse holder and a switch...
