I never write reviews, but this board works like a dream for my project. All the components are of a high quality, the only downside is that the screw terminals(Which are optional) need a larger gauge wire than what my nema 17 motors came with.

Thank you so much for taking the time, Drew. I'm glad to share this shield that made things so much easier for myself with the community. I know some steppers have wires that are very thin. I double checked the specs for the screw terminals and they should be good down to 26 AWG, which is almost magnet wire thin. I have a habit of always tinning the ends of my motor leads right off since I generally add extra length to to them. If your leads are not squished in the terminals as well as you'd like them to be, adding just the smallest amount of solder to the bare ends should increase the diameter enough (as well as cementing stranded wire together) to make a snug fit.
