    Question Deciding between two cnc kits...

    I am trying to decide between the following two kits:

    https://www.amazon.com/Controller-Ne...qid=1546390389
    https://www.automationtechnologiesin...-3-axis-kit-3/

    They are about $100 apart but contain the same basic components. The obviously Chinese one (from the documentation, which contains graphics done is mspaint) has mostly good reviews with the excepting of one guy who cant seem to tune the motors (which I would guess is not the fault of the kit). The Automation Technologies one has no reviews but appears to be better quality and definitely has better documentation, however I don't know if this is one of those things where the cheaper kit is just as good (none of the motors have a brand name, and may in fact be from the same factory)

    Please advise, thanks!

    I second that. You don't want the TB6560 drivers. They work, but the drives in the automation tech kit are vastly superior. If you want to out together your own kit I have had good success with the DM 542T from StepperOnline through Amazon
