Stepper-motor driven 11″ leadscrew with motor mount
Simple CNC control over your slide can be achieved by using a stepper motor to drive the leadscrew. A handwheel is provided for backup manual control.
The leadscrew nut and anti-backlash nut are shown threaded onto the leadscrew. The lock for the backlash nut is next to the leadscrew as are the two screws provided to attach the stepper motor mount to your fixture. (Click on the image above for a larger view).
