4th axis
« on: January 07, 2013, 12:59:17 PM »
Hi

          I built a 4th axis for my cnc router I used two pulleys and a belt 4:1 ratio. My question is what would the difference be If I connected the stepper motor directly to the headstock shaft running the chuck.

More speed, less resolution AND less working and  holding torque.
