View Full Version : Need Help! 4x10 machine

10-16-2015, 01:02 PM
I'm building a 4x10 steel machine using CNC295052 router parts components, the machine will have a lathe on one end.
My question is my gantry will weigh right around 200-225 pounds and I would like to use NEMA34 servos. Will I need to use a gear head for the servos
or can I use the 3:1 pulley and belt setup from CNC Router Parts. Also what size servos do you recommend
Here are some pics attached of the machine so far

I don't have a lot of servo experience, however I don't think it would hurt anything at all to use the belt setup from CNCRP. They are very well made. The Nema 34 steppers are quite capable motors as well. Strong and reliable. I do understand the wish to use servo's though. Good luck with it. I will be watching.
