They have the harness, they are a little more expensive though.

You will be wiring from the driver to the windings in the motor. Having a connection like that will make it easy to unplug to work manually.

But if the other side is only sold with the control box you may need to get a different set.

I found a pack of 10 on Amazon for cheap. 4 pins and they have a screw retaining ring

I think that there is something to be said for starting with a parallel port and a cheap integrated driver board.

For example.
You might well end up not using that for your machine, because you will probably blow it up before then :-) But you will learn a lot in the process and then have a better idea which way you want to go.

I started with one of those, blew it up, replaced a driver, blew it up again... (The TB6560 is fairly fragile, a loose motor wire will do for them)

Eventually I ended up with discrete black-box stepper drivers and a Mesa 7i43, but I wouldn't have known that was the way to go without the early experiments.
