Okay I can reduce the z height, that not a problem. But I have dw660 and the makita and there is only 2 oz weight difference. Also my steppers are capable of 4.5a so I can easy turn them up or run in series. What are the benefits in running series over parallel or vice versa.
Also I just scrap my parallel breakout board setup and am now running your updated marlin with LCD through repitier, but all the stepper drivers are working as I tried on each axis, but the z axis is not sending anything to the stepper? Followed your repitier setup. The z movement through repitier or LCD doesn’t work.
