Can I use one gecko and slave another stepper off it?
Either I have one 400oz stepper with belts either side of the x slaved together through a rod on the gantry or I buy 2 identical ( =>200oz ?) steppers and use two identical ball screws.
I would prefer not to then have to buy another gecko so therefore is it possible to share the gecko across two identical motors?
I'm sure there will be voltage (and hence power losses) in which case what is the practical approach to this problem?
