Welcome Geoff

Yes they did do a lot of testing and for ever grateful, Vive la France.

Oh oH Gilles, bug report with PE. :-)

My solution worked for me, not necessarily to only way to go. Plan B is to change out lead Screws or increase Motor Voltage to gain some extra over head speed. Cutting anywhere around 2 mm/s is like watching paint dry but I am quite happy around 3 to 3.5.. :-)

I stole the linear slides off the wire cutter to build the router. The router build enlightened me to what can be done with various methods. When I put the wire cutter back together I am considering Belt Drive for "X". I have 3/8-10 2-start lead screws for the wire cutter and it's that's plenty, this would just be for fun. We will see how that goes.

Curious as to what your Wire Diameter is.
