    So by being able to change the ratio for more torque which may help with a heavier router then does the software adjust the difference or do you have to have all your steppers at the same ratios?

    Set your firmware steps per mm accordingly. The listed BOM is 1:1 ratio though so no change needed, only if you change ratio
