So I've decided to build my next cnc router, my first is a kit I had ordered and put together. I am building the base from welded steel tubing with some cold rolled flats for rail beds. And a mix of steel and aluminum for the gantry. I'm trying to get some tools together like dial indicator, straight edge (eeek I dont like the prices), twisted wire for straight edge..... can anyone that has been down this road recommend any usefull tools or inspection equipment that would be usefull in the process? Any recommendations will be appreciated. Thanks all
Tim M

48v power supply 12 amp, drivers are 24-50v. My machine has worked great for over a year. No possition loss is good, more torque at higher rpm is better. I have a prety heavy gantry. My pc is windows 10 64 bit so I might swith to ethernet ss also. The hybrids are supposed to have smoother positioning less heat more efficient so as the manufacturers claim there performance is not comparable to a normal stepper.

I am looking to upgrade my motors on my router. Does anyone use the hybrid stepper motors with encoders? I like the clearpath motors but there a bit out of my budget. I have nema 23 425oz/in motors without aa data sheet. Does anyone have any suggestions for motor upgades? Good couplers to use on motor directly mounted to shaft of ballscrews in all axis. I have 5mm pitch.

I got a chance today to get out to the machine. I re routed my ul-100 and i increased my velocity to 4k and 400 accel. Just did test 2 again and seems ok now.
