My plan is to build a cnc router so that I can cut guitar parts. After reading several cnczone posts I see that many build the first cnc to make the parts for the second cnc. Since I learn best by doing, I have decided to take that same approach. I am going to build a smaller cnc to hold my dremel and or trim router first. I just bought 3 M061-CE08 Superior Electric Slo-Syn Stepping Motors. (ebay) - The spec I am finding are as follows:
1.25 V DC, 3.8 Amps, 200 Steps Minimum Holding Torque: Unipolar - 60 oz-in, Bipolar - 75 oz-in, NEMA Size 23 . Based on this information can someone advise me on a driver type unipoler/Bipolar as well as what I should look for in power ratings. Since this cnc is just a baby step into the cnc world and with the expectation of building a larger machine with nema 34 motors, the least expensive route would be best. I do plan to buy mach3 and would like to be able use it with both cnc setups. also have some experience in building electronic kits if that would be an option to keep the cost down. Thank you.
