    So, :rolleyes: if I fix the Motor to a surface and support the other side, I could make the rail move forwards and backwards. :)
    I don't know why, but I'll give it some thought. :banghead:

    Why? By mounting it on top the rock, you would have a much safer version of this:

    All my "engineering" skills come from watching Wile E. Coyote. He is a Super Genius after all. It says so on his business card.

    I have lots of left over parts after upgrading one of my 3D printers, including Nema 17 motors. Will the Nema 17 belt and pinion system work with a CNC router build or is it more suited to laser engraving, lighter duty stuff? (Also, I'm guessing I'll be able to use a 2560/RAMPS setup with this as well? (because I have one laying around..)
