TR8x8 Trapezoidal Lead Screw (metric)
TR8x8 Trapezoidal Lead Screw (metric), this stainless steel trapezoidal Lead Screw has an ideal pitch and diameter for small CNC machines, as this lead screw has a perfect combination of high torque and speed.
This lead screw fits for most machine designs and will quickly become a standard in OpenBuilds.
The diameter of the screw is adequate to help eliminate vibration and more having a high pass has a rapid translation of 8 mm for each revolution of the lead screw.
This lead screw is a good choice for building your designs with Openbuilds components if you want fast and reliable transmission.
