I'm using single drive x-axis system and willing to add extra drive.
Do somebody here have experience in using it?
Where can I get cross-over cable or it's schematics?
Dynatorch support is on vacation still , I think...

We had problems with our single drive system and drag after about a year and a half of use (heavy use). I don't mean to comment on our problem as it may not have been due to the equipment...but part of our solution ended up including upgrading to the dual drive setup. Honestly the difference was substantial and I was skeptical if it really was all it was cracked up to be. It has much more grunt and, unlike your single drive system, you know that it's running square if you've hommed the machine.

It cost a few bucks to convert but it was worth it.

Is it possible to know more technical details about your upgrade?
What type of drives did you use?
What was the upgrade procedure?
