    I need holding power at my tailstock. I’m want to remove my factory tailstock and install another headstock with chuck and stepper motor. My problem is with the wiring. I’m sure it’s not as simple as splicing into the my current lathes stepper motor wires and running them to the second motor. I’m assuming there is some sort of power supply to the steppers that I need to make sure is big enough.

    Has anyone attempted this? Is it possible?
