    The cnc build at a later date will be with new motors, drives etc. Thanks for the responses they have really helped, especially when it comes to power supply choice. Once I have it up and running I will post some pictures.

    In which case then Andy is absolutely correct just throw 24v at it cheap has possible and the 3 axis TB based boards will probably be the cheapest route. @ 24v they will be ok, go much higher and they like letting out magic smoke.!

    I've made a CNC guitar pickup winder previously...& I agree....make it as cheap as chips - the TB based boards are awful, but that's mainly when they are pushed....and winding 0.06mm dia. copper wire onto a bobbin, is not going to stress anything.

    Two of these ought to be fine for a CNC guitar winder (overkill, but they're the cheapest option)...

    I have a TB6560 3 axis board and 3 Nema 23 steppers as well as a 24V PSU (http://www.mycncuk.com/forums/router...rs-planes.html)you can have (well buy!!) as a package...bought these before coming on the forum and they'd be useless for my build...PM me if you're interested and I'm sure we could come to some arrangement...

    What software did you use to run the cnc winder?

    a free program called gcoil ...which you enter a few parameters of your bobbin & it produces g-code for your particular wind.

    You then load the g-code into your CNC app.
