For the smaller stepper motor, let me know what current you end up using. I have problems with mine overheating.

It was awesome meeting you and some of the team! Here is a quick video of MRRF I put together:

The Youtube tag on the forums doesn't work, please fix it. Many more Lulzbot videos to come that I'd like to share!

I haven't messed with the current yet, although I do run @ 1.5A on my Smoothieboard i3 E3D setup with a pancake. Whatever is stock in the Single Extruder firmware skips/stalls easily. As for overheating, it comes down to if your mounts will melt. I heard most steppers run hot in industrial settings, too hot to touch. YMMV.
