    Re: Stepperworld FET 4 problem

    109jb,

    I hear what you're saying.

    I'm only persisting with the FET4 as it's what I've got my money sunk into. So I'm trying to make the most of it. It seems I've "bought a turkey" but, at...

    Well I've now replaced the dead stepper motor on/off switch but the results are the same...............a dead Y axis output port.

    Who did you get your conversion gear from ???

    I'm also converting a HF30.

    Are you going steppers coupled to ballscrews or cogs and belts ??
