Hi everyone, I am planning on building an ox router soon and am about to start buying parts. i am still unsure on what electronics I am going to go with, mainly because of motor torque. here is the link for the motor and driver kit I have been considering purchasing. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Germany-S...201?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item3f3849dc09 my first thought is the nema 23's in this kit are 425oz where as i notice the original ox only uses 175oz motors. will 425oz be to much torgue? they dont seem to offer any lower torque with the same drivers. i know most people would say get a gecko 540 but that alone is about £300 and my budget for the entire machine is £1000 and i dont really like the idea of an all in one board as I know if a wire pops out while the machine is on the driver chips let out their magic smoke. i have also read that the leadshine dm542 drivers actually out perform the gecko 540 and that the longs motor dm542a drivers are identical to the leadshine ones if not just rebranded versions of them. this kit has 2 power supplys that run at 36v with 9.7amps each so that should be plenty even if all 4 motors are running at once. i know the chinese stuff gets a bad rep from the tb6560 drivers that could only put out 30% of their rated current. the seller from the abouve link has 100% feedback with alot of sales so i would guess there must be something good about the longs motor stuff. i plan on using linuxcnc with this on an old athlon 2600 mobo, it has usb boot capabilitys so hopefully i can run it barebones inside my controll box and operate the thing remotely over the network. for cam software i quite like heekscad so far.
