    Hello everyone,

    I am starting a new router build, and after going over the forums I still have a couple of quick questions. I am building a 36″x24″x10″ unit which will have a dewalt router as a spindle. My questions are as follows;

    1. I have a bunch of Acme 1/2 – 10 single start rod and hardware sitting around, I wonder if I could convert the Z axis to acme? Has anyone done this?

    2. I have the following electronics / software;
    a. Gecko G540 driver
    b. Super PID speed control
    c. Mach 3 Software, (soon to be Mach 4)

    Has anyone run the unit with a similar setup? – More curious on this than anything.

    Will it help if I document the electronics hookup for the community? Thanks for the awesome design and your help.

    Craig

    Yes please lets see what you do with all that!
    I have been looking into making something like that super PID, slick….

    The ACME would be good if you have ball screws and can fit it in there, but if it just has the brass nut you might wanna stay away.
