    Exclamation Looking for assistance with... :PARTIALLY SOLVED!

    So i bought a CNC after saving for what seems like forever. I got some extra do-dads to go with it, i got my limit switches and my Z touch probe. What do i need? Well... i need help making sure the wiring is correct! i need someone willing to look at what i have via skype, hangouts, whatever they want to use.. and tell me "Hey! You #$%#ED IT UP!". hopefully after that tell me how to do it right. I know im kinda new here, and don't contribute a lot but i am new and have little ((nothing)) to contribute other than "You can learn g-code by some study and google!". Anyhow, if anyone wishes to help me, it would be great. Im looking to see if this thing is running within 14 days because that's my grace period till i have to return it if something is wrong. The machine is a 6040 4axis with the dreaded T6560. Any help is appreciated! Also, its going to be here in the morning by the time i wake up. If you guys like, a link to the exact model is at the link posted below. If any mods want me to rem,ove said link from the post i will edit it!

    Did you wire it yourself, or change the wiring from the way it came?

    You didn't really say what your question was?

    I have not changed the wiring in any way. A lot of people told me these things come messed up. I have no idea really.
    I do know that the E stop button doesn't work, for what thats worth. And the spindle does not seem to be able to engage reverse.

    The question is, does the wiring look correct? i have started the spindle, i have hooked it up to a mach3 computer.
    I have not gotten the steppers to turn but i think that may just be how I have mach3 set.

    Also, i have a Z touch plate and some limit switches i would like to hook up but dont know where too. The china seller i bought it from included a few pixels they called a picture diagram. but that dont help.

    First things first, I can feel you bro, Ived been on that s-h-i-t hole few years back, talking to a chinese technical support made the scenario even worse hehe, now let me ask a question, what`s the specification of the computer you used to drive yout unit? dont change anything yet on the wiring, but I advise changing the whole stepper motor harness into a larger AC wires AWG #18 is enough, it will cause problems in the future if you started mass producing stuff, assemble a computer with at least dual core and have a parallel port then install MACH 3 on that unit, now let`s start from there get back here if you acquired it, a used dell 320 is good enough.

    I love that Z-axis Knob...mine got nothing and it`s very hard to zero on the material without that Z-axis Knob

    Sample pictures of products I mass produced with the same CNC you got but without the Z-Axis knob, same parallel port and everything, I also need you to open that control box of yours, there`s something I would like you to modify and add, but not right now, we just need to run your unit first before anything else...

    Your issue is all software related, the pins and port stuff, the Estop configuration, you just need to learn how to configure MACH 3 all the switches on that unit will function, you just need to configure the software.

    after looking at your photos

    I would check the earth connection to the metal control box

    Looking for assistance with... :PARTIALLY SOLVED!-check-earth-connection-case-jpg

    the breakout board has a connector for the limit switch & touch probe
    you will have to look to see if they have labled the connector pins ( possibly 1 common & 4 inputs )

    it lookes like the E stop goes to a red 2 pin connector

    John

    PS

    the reverse input on the spindle drive has not been used so you
    will not be able to reverse the spindle

    would be a good startpoint, to track down what wire from where to where going

    draw a schematic then you going to be ok

    I like to think anyone wired it they know what they are doing..
    but again first track down all wires..

    also would be a help to find a diagram.. most ebay seller who sells breakout board and controlboard individually they have wiring diagram..

    GROUND CONNECTION: I checked the earth and it was in fact not great, there was a little paint under it so i ground that away and put it back down. Clean connection now.

    BREAKOUT BOARD: I took a picture and labled a few things. i also made it so you could zoom in rather nicely. http://i.imgur.com/4x6dRaN.jpg

    REVERSE: Yeah, i saw that as soon as I sent the pictures. I'm not even sure if my spindle will turn in reverse if it was hooked up. There is an arrow pointing the current way of rotation.

    I get the gist of configuring mach 3, i just dont know the things like...number of steps ect. I also dont know my pin out. Think you could walk me trough it a tad? If needed i can use skype or hangouts for chat instead of typing back and forth
