That would probably be easier than unplugging and plugging in motors on one board and if the new Y& Z motors have a different rating changing amp draw setting as well on the HCNC board.
All 6 steppers are the same Daves 305 in/oz I will just be moving the X axis's over and switching out the Y and Z for the part that goes across the table when the X's are back at Zero.

I'll have limit and home switches on this on too... While it was not an issue on the old machine.

My X axis's are rack and pinion driven, the y's are 5 start 1/2 in acme scres at .5 inches per turn. The Y and Z of the routher... Y is rack and pinion and Z is another 5 start lead screw at a half inch per turn..
