So how strong of nema 23 stepper do I need to lift that head.
You can calculate the required torque using a sizing program but would be easier to just use what others use on that kind of machine.
What size motors would have came with the conversion kit if you purchased them with the x2 conversion kit?

Its working!  Stupid me had two wires crossed on the Z axis.  I switched those around and it worked like a charm.  that stepper has more then enough power to lift that head.  still in the future Ime going to get a bigger stepper  just so I dont ware the little guy out.
