Stepper Motor Selection

Hi all, first post here smiling smiley

I'm trying to build a reprap in the UK, and i'm currently sourcing stepper motors. I can get the following motor quite cheap:

[www.motioncontrolproducts.co.uk]

Could anyone have a look at the datasheet and tell me if this will do, and specifically which model number to get? The specifications look very similar to those in the datasheet for the "official" motors, so hopefully I could be on to a winner. Obviously if need be I can adjust fixings if the mounting holes have different positions.

Thanks in advance,
Jim

Why don't you talk to Ernie Fick at Motion Control Products about this stepper and show him the model that is usually used? I've found Ernie to be a veritable wellspring of useful advice.
