Hi guys. I have been having a quite rough time with my CNC work bench. I now need to re-arrange it in order to make life a bit smooth. I have been thinking of using extending some 4 pin cables ideally from the stepper motors. Where can I get such cables?
Regards
Trojan

What type of cable do you need? 4 core CY cables are normally used.

I found the cable thanks to you Ishan. XLR 4 pin type is the flying socket fitted on my cables. I have no screw type flying plugs to fit. Do I need to replace all the cables?

Just fit new cables, otherwise it may take you more if you keep looking and asking.
