    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

    good to see your making progress

    I have had a quick look at connectors from Mouser

    this could be the connector you need for your limit switches

    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 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.

    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.
