View Full Version : controller and stepper motors cheap?

10-17-2010, 10:59 PM

I was looking at a 3 axis kit and controller for $510. Its worth every penny but Im trying to get my Joes 2006 up and running on a shoe string and just wondering if there is a less expensive route to get started.

thank you

Not Building a Joes but,

Hobby CNC Pro Chopper board $79

36V Power supply (buildyourcnc.com) $59.95

160 oz/in Vexta steppers on EBay ~$70 shipped

My machine is the BuildYourCNC book build and it works great. The driver board needed to me assembled but it was pretty easy to do.
