Power feed for Centec2
« on: October 21, 2018, 09:33:10 AM »
Hi,I've just recently made myself a very basic vertical head for the Centec2 ,I'm now looking to adding my own power feed to the table . I'm not sure what size of 12v motor to use ,I initially was going to use a wiper motor which seems like it might  have enough torque .

Photo of the head I made which works surprisingly good .

 Any info or ideas would be greatly appreciated .

Thanks
Sean

Using a stepper motor instead of a plain dc motor would allow you to move the head a specific distance.
