    I think you mean wiring the drivers to the BOB, not the motors.

  3. Re: intermittently stepping the wrong direction in z

    The ESS has a setting to debounce signals - When I first set up my 2.2KW spindle/VFD, I had to make an adjustment in that setting due to noise from the VFD. In your case, I have no idea why it...

    I had a terrible time tramming my machine because tightening the bolts on the mount always threw out the adjustment - then I realized that the bearings on the Z were not properly adjusted. Once I got...

    Re: New To CNC in Central Texas

    The UC100 output looks like a parallel port. According to the manual the port number is always 1 and the pins are addressed just as you would if you were running from a regular parallel port.

    Re: New To CNC in Central Texas

    You mention "how do I get an address" in your original post.

    If the software is installed correctly, when Mach3 runs it will ask you which motion controller you want. Do you get that far?

    What do you see on Mach3's diagnostics page? Are the limits configured active high when they should be low or vice-versa?

    I'm guessing that by time you are done, you will be at $7K plus or minus. You don't say what tooling and other bits you already have. Cutters add up quickly, and no matter how careful you are they...
