I have 3 Nema23 steppers that I bought off of ebay to use for my OX build. These steppers are beasts, they are about 115mm long, about twice the ones they use in the OX video. My question is this, one side of the stepper, the side with the mounting holes is a 1/2" spindle, and the back side of this dual shaft stepper is 1/4". Can I remove the metals covers from both ends, remove the spindle and put it back in place except have the 1/4" spindle size facing the mounting brackets. I've was physically able to do, and put it back together easy enough. I even used Mark's trick of twisting the wires from the same wrap together to lock up the machine. When all the wires are free I can spin it, and when I match up the winding wires it locks up. Anyone know if that means it will work or perhaps kill the motor sooner? I scoured the internet and wasn't really able to find any information about this. Thanks for any information you can provide to me.
