Rebuilding my CNC, part 3

I always liked the old Machine Shop equipment that had metal plates that spelled out the motor type, threads per inch, etc etc.

Now I know why.  I lost my paperwork on my motors and thread count (home depot cheap rod).  So…thankfully google found my Nema 24 motors, and I could count the threads.

Now I just need to get the settings just right for LinuxCNC.  The tool comes with a utility call “stepconf” which has a nice wizard like interface to help your test and configure your motors, and even puts a link to the config on the desktop to automatically load it on startup of LinuxCNC.  Nice….
