    Question Idea - repurpose old Tormach S1 parts to CNC router

    Heya all - I hope fall is treating everyone well.

    I have been looking into CNC routers to go with my PCNC 1100. I could buy a fully kitted out package but where is the fun in that???

    I have the old S1 motors, drivers, and board from my 1100. Anyone ever used that to make a CNC router? I could reuse pathpilot as well.

    Thoughts? Ideas?

    I had considered doing something similar with the leftover steppers after my M+ upgrade but haven't gotten around to it. Probably won't anytime soon either given all the other things I have in my queue.
