Been a long time since I was here.
Still working on my 50" table top to move up & down & the printer is mounted on a moving platform.
After finding his YouTube had to check out this post.
The only thing I can see is it's NOT a spindle.
A spindle is a motor to hold the cutters to engrave on a CNC Router.
It's called a LEADSCREW & he using the ones on eBay from China.
I'm using a acme screw with 10 turns per inch which will have a 23 (200steps) stepper or DC motor using the encoded still mounted on the printer as the UFOPrinter.
Have a friend to help with the programming I hope.
DC motor make more since as the is what the Epson R2000 use's.
A DC motor is not a SERVO till it has an encoded with it.
Have build a number of CNC table with Servo & stepper over the many years & converted a few machines to CNC.
