Hi Robhi yes you can use this motor I'm currently using one on the head of my X3 mill but I have geared it down 2:1 because of the wieght. In this situation it is proving very marginal and sometimes locks up. However I think this is mainly due to the limited voltage of the XYlotex these are 7.5V motors and would be happier at higher voltages, maybe 70-80V. Is this size motor nessaccary for the your application. On my X3 mill I use the Arc AC5707645251 180N.cm 4.5V on the X and Y axis also on the rotary table. these have proved more than adaquate here. It will also depend wether you're using lead screws or ball screws. Not sure how X3 size compares with the Sherline. The software I,m using is Ubuntu EMC2 on an old 800Mhz PC. The latest version of EMC2 has a new step configuration set up program included which has made it very simple to set up now compared with earlier versions. This also vastley improved the performance of my X3.
