    Am wanting to completely revamp my machine and to do what I have in mind I will need two motors each on the X and Y axis (btw what the hell is plural of axis....axi or axieees ?)//// Anyway so much for grammar. Am I correct in my thinking that I can wire 2 dq542 drivers to the same output on a MK 3 controller with no loss in performance? I have a spare MK3/4 so I really didn't want to have to buy the 9 axis model.
