    If it makes any money it'll be spindle and servo upgrades first.
    This is where I'm glad I went overboard for Nema34's on my PM25 clone.
    At 400rpm (2000mm/min) the torque figure is almost identical to the Nema23 motor from a similar model line.
    When it comes to acceleration though it's a fairly big difference so far.
    Haven't got round to do that much testing yet with tuning to find it's stall point.

    Re: How fast is your homemade CNC?

    My home shop CNC can cut composites pretty damn fast, its almost scary. I could have a nap between each passes when it cuts ferrous-anything though...
    All depends!

    Should have asked what sort of 'rapids' (aka non-cutting moves) are you getting from your homemade cnc instead
