I'm not looking for a whole lot more speed. Right now i'm traveling about 20 inches per min.
Is that about normal or can I get it closer 35-40 like i'd like to have it?
My rpm is about 100-150. This is a guess seeing that I don't have anything to measure rpm with.

Hi,
may I suggest getting ALL of the rest of the machine sorted and THEN come back to the speed issue.

You risk, by trying to get it to go fast now, that you introduce 'lost steps' and that will make implementing
homing, limits and so on very very much more difficult. To start with go slow but reliable. Later try increasing
speed.
