Why Leonardo? Will Uno work? Or Mega?
Due to the processor the Leonardo uses. We needed two timers to handle interruptions and the Arduino UNO is not capable of doing that. And Arduino Mega can, but it was a little bit too expensive.
Ah yes, that makes perfect sense. Thank you!

Uno has multiple timers... running fine on arduino uno (+cncshield v3) over here... some changes on timing needed because of 8bit timer instead of 16bit.....
