    If it makes any money it'll be spindle and servo upgrades first.
    This is where I'm glad I went overboard for Nema34's on my PM25 clone.
    At 400rpm (2000mm/min) the torque figure is almost identical to the Nema23 motor from a similar model line.
    When it comes to acceleration though it's a fairly big difference so far.
    Haven't got round to do that much testing yet with tuning to find it's stall point.

    My home shop CNC can cut composites pretty damn fast, its almost scary. I could have a nap between each passes when it cuts ferrous-anything though...
    All depends!

    Should have asked what sort of 'rapids' (aka non-cutting moves) are you getting from your homemade cnc instead
