    Depending on what you plan to do with the stock steppers, you can take the mounting plates from them and reuse with the new servos....just needs the new hole pattern.

    Most of the motors that where on these machines did not have mounting plates they where direct mounted

    Mactec, Todd, i ended up purchasing nema 42 servos with the correct mounting pattern and shaft size .. this will be a " direct fit " replacement. I just needed to get the project moving.. i previously purchased nema 34's for this machine so i will save them for the next build... at least i can use the boss to cut the adapters !!
