Ok now I'm confused.. I've been reading through posts all evening just doing research on what I want to do. I'm turning a Mini-Mill into a cnc machine. Because I'll be doing a lot of cutting I want to go with the nema 34 4XXoz/in larger motors. I believe I'm sold on the following.
Gecko 202 Drives
24V 10amp Power Supply
Nema 34 434oz/in steppers
Here is why I'm confused. I'm reading some posts with guys saying they are using 5volts to run their motors? Then other posts saying they are running 24 volts. Why would someone be using only 5 volts on a larger stepper motor? I want to get a "fair" amount of speed out of my machine, but still be able to get good cutting capabilities. Any help or explanations would be nice! Thank you!
