    Wow. Good luck finding a longer rod. I ordered one of these and looked a lot of places trying to find one.

    From what I can tell (from various shops looking at it, my own observations, and the datasheet), this requires a rod which is:

    5mm diameter 2-start rod 1.0 mm pitch

    Sadly, I even purchased an M5x1.0 die for cutting my own rod, only to discover fully the 2-start problem. A rough estimate from a local machine shop for a custom one came to about 4 hours of work @ $110/hour. This stepper is not worth $450 to me.

    TL;DR: Get it if 100mm is good for you. Don’t get it if you need a longer rod.

No public wish lists :(
