    so almost done with my diy cnc at the electronics. Problem is I didn't consider wires when designing. The stepper motoro wires are to short and the power Supply doesn't even have wires. So stupid question but what kind of wires do I need to get?

    This is what I used when I was hooking up from my drivers to some NEMA 23 steppers. Wire on Amazon.

    Thanks and this will work for the power Supply as well? Plus my spindle?

    I'm using a Bosch Colt so I can't say for a spindle, but if you look at my build you will see I used this wire all over in my controller.

    shielded wire is a good idea for steppers
    Amazon 50 feet

    you can use this for the spindle, or better is get some shielded 2 conductor for that, the AWG size depends on the power spindle

    I have 269oz 3.2 amp steppers and a 400 watt quiet cut spindle from smw3d with the spindle controller. And 48v 400 watt power supplies for each.
