HOWDY from Tx.
I am building a Gantry style router @ 24X48. Using a porter cable #7301 laminate trim router.
I am as green as a gourd, and need help to determine the best buy,and best size stepper motors that I need. I am a professional woodworker, and not a scientist. So I will need the control to be a part of this buy.
I am using skate bearings on heavy pipe for the rails. Very excited to get moving along, but not blindly!
Any input is greatly appreciated. The motion screws are going to be 1/4-20 all-thread. Is this ok? or if there are some others that are better for a starter unit? Well thanks in advance for any help that I may receive.
