Not sure if I asked this, I think I did, but I'm looking for a more defined answer.
My table is 5 x 5 and I want to cut, and sculpt wood and engrave aluminum (not cut through on a regular basis).
So how do I figure out how big of motors to use? I'm trying to keep the cost down so I'm thinking steppers and xylotex.
This will be my first and it'll use a similar system to the balsaman 2 router. 80/20 frame, but I'm using bearings in the groove instead of thk bearings.
Anyone have like a mathematical equation or something?
