    Hi,
    In the description for all three of your CNC USB controllers you say: "stepper motor drivers will be needed to run the motors" Where do I get the stepper motor drivers? And which drivers do I need for each of your CNC USB Controllers? I can't find this information on your site.

    Regards,
    Duncan

    Pololu is the official source. They have the A4988 which is what I use in my 3D printers, and there is also the DRV8825 for higher current applications.
    Not sure if the driver board takes these as I haven't looked at it, but you can just as easily use a RAMPS board to control a CNC.

    Plus, while Pololu designed all this stuff, I get it out of China for much cheaper.
