Stepper Drive and Controller

Posted: 2011/01/08 in CNC conversion

As I posted a few days back, I’m making the jump to upgrade my manual Taig mill to CNC.  One of the first thing I have had to do was to select a stepper driver and controller.  I’ve read a lot of various forums and a lot of people have very good results and comments about Geckodrive.

So I opted to get a Gecko G540 drive for my mill.

I also decided to be smart and avoid issues by ordering matching stepper motors from GeckoDrive.

So far I’ve managed to keep my Taig mill 100% North American made 😉
