    Default lathe = indexer frame

    I have been considering converting a Vega wood lathe (has 2 axis duplicator).
    A metal working lathe might work - don't 're-invent-the -wheel' any more than you have to. SB tech said they would sell the motor - but not offer tech support on it. Let me know how you do.

    Here is a couple different pics of my steppers and indexer motor. I can't tell you the specific technical differences but you can look them up for reference. The indexer motor has an additional section on it, i suspect for more gearing.
    These are from a 2006 Prt Alpha

    Here is a link to a stand alone indexer someone made:
