I plan to have a dedicated laptop, Dell D600, for my CNC set up.
Planning to use Keling steppers KL23H284-35-4B 387 oz-in on my 7x12 lathe as suggested elsewhere.
From a suggestion, I have the choice of going with g251's w/BOB or g540
My question is, if I go with 2 g251's and a BOB is needed, I assume I will need a smooth stepper board, being I have a laptop?....OR can I be OK to use the g540 being it has a BOB?
Will be using Mach3
