Title: 1 X Axis Stops
Post by: Rkjohn on September 09, 2013, 09:40:32 PM
I am testing a 4 axis system from Mike Beck (Hobby CNC Controller). Using Mach 3 from 2006 and when I go from Tool Path to Program Run one of the X axis motors stop & the other keeps running. The motors are 305 oz. This would be a problem if It was on my machine. Is this a known Problem or could it be my motors or controller ?

Another question, I am building a 4' X 3' machine. What size motors should I use if I plan to cut Aluminum ?

Suggest you have a look at machines similar to what you are building.  Post back when  you have more specifics.
