I found that my PS can be adjusted down to 29.7 VDC output and the Azteeg website states that the max voltage on the X3 Pro board is 30vdc....My only concern is the amps....will it handle 18A?

Genisys XS 3D printer Upgrade Recommendations
I have an old Genisys XS 3D printer that I have stripped the old electronics except for the stepper motors, heated platen, 33VDC powersupply and possibly the end stops. This is very sturdy industrial grade printer that is 200 pounds of steel and aluminum. I had this this unit working before I stripped it, so I know the above components work.
My stepper motors are:
1 of VEXTA PK296-02aa Specs: 2 Phase motor, 2.1 Amps per phase and 4.2 vdc, 1.8 degree/step
2 -of VEXTA PK268-03A Specs: 2 Phase motor, 2.1 Amps per phase and 4.2 vdc, 1.8 degree/step
Question 1: I am trying to decide between the Panucatt Azteeg x3 pro board or the Ultimaker Rambo 1.3 board
Can anyone give me any pros and cons with these boards or suggest another?
These are my goals to keep in mind:
1. I want to be able to run 2 extruders, or possibly run a small mill head in place of the 2nd extruder
2. I want to run different materials.
Question 2: what extruder head assembly is your recommendation?
Question 3: Anything I need to be aware of in planning this out?
