The only thing not working is the Y axis. It tries then i use the manual mode from the pc, both Y+ and Y- make the motor whine, but nothing happens. again though, i can turn it by hand rather easily when the machine is off. What would cause this? I think the pins are correct
Thank you John. The only number i have found for it is TX14175 but that comes back blank. I think that layout you did up will work nciely. Now i juust got to find a way to connect the wires to those pins. No idea what the connector is called.

New evelopment. Now the spindle wont work. If oi try to turn it onm in mach3 it tells me that the PWM minimum has been bumped. I have no idea what this means. I had not changed anything before it started doing it
Update: I got the Y axis working..ish... But it is odd. lets say i press up 3 times, 2 of those times it will go - and one tim e it MIGHT go +, seems random. Other times it will stay still and make a grinding noise. I am clueless here. Anyone got any ideas?
I got your point sir, it just makes a hum noise while press a Y button, been there hehe, im going to work now then Ill take all the config files, screenshots on how I set my CNC on the ports and pins etc. I`ll get back to you after 5:00pm
For some reason I cant PM you because your inbox is full, so I just post it here anyway
I may be late to the party but did you look on the disk provided if there is a setup file? I don't have your machine, I have the 3020 but with my software CD I had a folder with different machine names on it. Inside was a file that when double clicked would configure the Mach3 software to set up the XYZ ports, motor speeds and also the STOP button. See if you have a folder like that, it might fix all your problems.
Unfortunetly mine did not come with a config file. But as an updatew, it has been determined after using 2 different wires, on 2 different computers, that my breakout board is dead. I am having them ship me a replacement.
eUpdate: Got a new VFD, i have no communication between the VFD and the pc. i am wondering if i need some sort of driver? Has anyone of you gotten on of these machines and actualy gotten it to work? I am still looking for help with this.
Re: Looking for assistance with... PARTIALLY SOLVED!
I have it working! ..mostly. User KH0UJ has taken a large amount of his time out of quite a few of his days to talk to me over google hangouts and help me to get it working. Without his help i would not have been able to get this machine to even make a noise. The X, Y, Z, and A are working very well, they jog at a nice speed. I have not optimized it to move at a very fast speed yet, but he taught me how to get them going and calibrated. The guy taught me WAY more about CNC and mach3 than i knew before. That all being said.. The man needs some kind of award for having to deal with me! haha.
I will be making a post right after this to go over my only remaining problem.
