While motor tuning what are the recommended steps per inch, velocity, and acceleration for the BlackFoot CNC?**Is there an option for 4th axis on blackfoot?**You can add a head stock and tail stock on the blackFoot by designing the table in a way the head and tail stock is positioned at the correct level so the end mill will be at the correct position. The correct position will depend on the end mills that you will be using. The end mill should be centered to the center of the head stock jaw near the lowest z-axis position.
