Im looking for the right kind of cable to extend my nema 23 steppers, 3amp cable, also a cheap version of lead screws? any links would be appriciated
hi guys thanks for the cable info :) and clive im currently using threaded bar just for the build and to check motion etc but i do want to use something more accurate and robust but the price tags are way out of my league from what i have seen, was maybe considering chain drive?, my bed size is 1200x1000mm
http://www.control-cables.co.uk/cy-cable/ there are lots of "branded" cable please inform me and others why you don't like CY cable and why it is ok for spindle and not for stepper motors. ..Clive
For spindle i buy SY cable. Sorry for the mistake.
CY cable is not true "flex" cable . Nothing wrong with it.
Minimum bending radius for:flexing:
20 x cable outer diameterstatic:
6 x cable outer diameter
flexing: -5°C up to +70 °Cstatic: -40 °C up to +70°C
I like "flex cable" . Flexy, you know. Easy to bend , thin for the size, easy to solder.
■ –20°C to 60°C
But you Clive, feel free to buy and to recommend whatever cable you like. I just stated my recommendation. Its personal preference. Nothing more.

Anyway we will have to agree to disagree. ..Clive
