    Im going to design my own as i seen most or belt driven well the ox is, and for torque purposes im going to use lead screws, and use nema 23, using nema 17 on a 3d printer is ok, as there not much resistance that requires high torque motors but on what i want to mill out will be mm aluminium max

    Sounds good Chris I would like to see a lead screw driven mill, especially on a little one I think it will make for a nice strong setup.
    Good luck and have fun with your build. Please post the build when you start so we can all follow along
