It is time to build a bigger router. My first is a converted milling table and the second will be a gantry type. I would like to use a leadscrew at each end of the gantry, each screw with its own direct drive motor. So the x axis will now have two motors running in a syncronous fashion.
So, can I parallel the two motors together?
Lets hope so, I would like to be able to use the same 'black box' for both machines, with a couple of multipin connectors so I just plug the big one or the small one in and cut.
Another question, can you run a driver with no motor connected?
