    Hey guys,

    Recently, the Part Store changed the 12v power supply to a Meanwell 12v/29A model. The new power supply is ultra low profile and high efficiency. We think you will really like it.

    The Nema Stepper Motors have also been updated to include braided wiring. This will make your builds wiring look super industrial - neat & clean! We love them!

    And since we are talking stepper motors, if you missed it, we now carry the DQ542MA Stepper Motor Driver.

    As always, we are here to help support your builds with the best quality hardware. There are a few NEW products coming out that I can't wait to share with you!


    Thanks for your support!

    Absolutely! That is the new controller featured in the contest on our front page. It's currently being tested and will be released soon!

    What software do you intend to use to run your system, GRBL or Mach3/4? That will narrow down the possibilities.

    Thanks, Mary. That controller looks good. My machine needs to be able to slave a fourth motor for the Y axis though and it looks like the controller will just have three drivers.

    I believe if you read the Features, there is room for 5 drivers. This may work for you!

    There is no date yet but we fell it is close enough to start thinking about a name for it. We are as anxious as you are to get this on the market!
