Thanks for the info the motors are rated at 2.3 amps serial and i have the power set at the nearest setting which is 2.35 amp, i cannot check travel yet as i only have the y axis made up, i just wanted to try the motors out on the threaded rod just to make sure they where working ok as they are second hand off ebay.

Hi i have started building a router table based on the jgro design, ive just built the y axis table with roller skate bearings at both ends and using m8 allthread for the shaft, i have coupled up the stepper motor using a flexible coupling and have run some wizard programs to see the motor turning,it turns ok,speeds up and slows down as the wizard dictates but the motor gets quite hot to the touch is this normal? just curious as i have never used stepper motors before.
