The guy I was talking about has those types of rail, along with about 3 different types. Including the v rail from openbuilds. I just need to bring some cash and make him an offer. I wish I had a lot more money because he has two cnc machines fully loaded that he wants to sell for about 1/10 the cost. Hopefully he will still have them when I get my next commission

Could anyone help me out?
I ended up buying the acro system 1000*1500.
As for the board i think i will get the uno+cnc shield board but i am not sure on which one to get. I have checked on ebay and they sell various cnc shield uno boards. Im not sure on which one i need. Maybe somone could link me to an ebay.
For the cables i think ill have some problems because of the lenght.
Could somone tell me the name of the connectors and cables so i can find them on ebay?

Thank you

This is the shield that I use https://www.amazon.com/Longruner-Expansion-Stepper-Heatsink-Arduino/dp/B06XJKVLG3http://. There are many clones of the original design but it is quite simple.
Many of the clones are the old design so you need to use the Z endstop for the spindle.

For long motor cables I just take the normal ones, cut them in half and add extension wires in the middle.

The acro system came with the motors but no cables at all so im not sure on how to find the cables with the right connectors :(

I would contact them because the motors should come with wires.

I have gotten wires here in the past. http://https://folgertech.com/collections/breadboards-wires-led-resistors-switches/products/motor-wire
