For those that need them, I also offer Planetary gearboxes and SB PRT & PRS adapter plates that adapt modern gearboxes to SB Frames. Gearboxes & motors are drilled and/or tapped to mate up with each other and the adapters for a small fee.

PRS NEMA 34 adapters and gearboxes are shown below.
PRS NEMA 23/34 adapter: $75
PRT NEMA 23/34 Adapter: $100
PRS Buddy X Axis Adapter: $150
