    Glad it's all worked out for you :)

    Not wishing to fuel the fire, but what cross section cy are people generally using between driver and stepper?! (genuine question!)
    Signed foolish architect

    ps. This video is quite useful for those with less experience when it comes to connecting steppers to the cable itself, I would be interested to hear comments on his methodology from those who have done this many times before... - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xbiipb6nnZg

    Joe I generally use 4 core 1mm CY cable and earth the screen to a star point in the control box and I don't see the point of stripping such a lot of cable back 6" is more than enough. But I make these for the back of the motorClick image for larger version.

    Thanks Clive, I thought he stripped a lot off! Do you 3D print those yourself?

    The white one I printed, the black one was milled from one of those fencing posts made out of car tyres. They are 100x100 square so I band-sawed it down the centre then it was possible to get one out of each half. The trouble with it is that the stuff if full of bubbles in the centre but they were fine. I have also made them from various plastics which are very nice.

    They are available like http://www.soigeneris.com/nema_23_st...r-details.aspx But I have seen them for about 13 euro from Europe somewhere.
