    Re: Breakout board - Spindle Wiring

    What do you have in "Ports and pins - Output signals" and "Ports and pins - Spindle setup"? Try this:

    Output signals:
    - Output #1 enabled, port 1, pin 17.

    Spindle setup:
    - "Use spindle motor output" checked
    - "PWM control" checked
    - "Disable spindle relays" unchecked
    - "Clockwise M3" output #1

    I don't think you have these wired right either. I personally would NOT wire the inverter directly to P17, I would use the onboard relay instead.

    Breakout board - Spindle Wiring

    Thanks for the advice - Always the way but managed to jag it not long after posting this (have been trying on and off for near a year - 2nd Hand dodged up machine)

    Isnt much info on spindle setup for these boards so just for anyone else having the same issue, I ended up connecting

    Inverter cm - relay on break out board
    Inverter fwd - other relay pin

    And set Mach3
