    see page 62 of the mach 3 manual to setup the motor outputs

    HARBOR FREIGHT 7X10 MINI LATHE CNC CONVERSION-page-62-motor-outputs-jpg

    use the pin numbers printed on the G540

    if an axis runs in the wrong direction change the direction pin setting to active low

    This is what you lack on your settings.

    You need to set the red square with the values suggested by gecko, on the chinese machines it`s X=2,3 Y=5,6 Z=7,8, it all depends on what model, some are a bit odd some are standardized, after that if all your axis move go back here to re calibration steps, if you know what to do on axis calibration I think you proceed on that

    Wait can you show us the BIOS on your PC? something like this>>>>>>>


    First you need to boot up in the BIOS of you PC and take a look on this settings on LPT1 port configuration, or just post here your motherboard model let me look it for you and post here what you need to set on the advanced settings on the parallel port

    The most accurate way to identify your motherboard model is to open your PC case, take a peek on the numbers or just post a picture on it and post it here, we can locate and identify it for you or just power up your PC then press delete or f2 (really depends on motherboard model) to enter BIOS environment.

    or just type DXDIAG on the run on start menu to find your motherboard model, or download CPU-Z and run it to find your motherboard model that`s if your on windows environment.
