Re: Wantai NEMA 23 motors

The 57BYGH420's have worked very well for me. I've got them on X and Y. Zero issues. Just be sure to use a driver that can deliver 2A. DRV8825/8818 or better. A4988's are not up to the task.

Re: Breaking bits trying to mill aluminium

I'll make something along those lines in the video. And don't feel bad. It took me a long time to get to this point with CAD and I ...
