A bit scary in my case as I still need to install my limit switches.. (one wrong click of the go to zero button at the wrong time can make ya jump..hehe)
But all things considered it did the job well (how ever I was running a real slow feed rate then up'd it to 300% (limit in mach) which left me cutting at only 10ipm at the time I think.. But the motors all sounded like they were doing their jobs and liked it..
I do how ever need to figure a way to put resistance on my Z so if the gecko's fault out or something the Z axis does not coast it's way through the table..
Well I wired up the limit and home switches. (and great now I have to re-wire my mill because I understand things more now.... )
But I wired my limit's all in series..
And decided to wire my x and y home in series as well. The way I figure.. If they are in series I will save 1 input to my ports. Mach3 only moves 1 axis onto and back off the home switches at a time anyway. So it should be able to look at the same input for both. (homes x trips switch, backs off untrips switch then homes Y (and then maybe Z to but I don't see the point in a Z home really) trips switch and backs off again.
Perhaps this is the way it's suposed to be but I've still seen diagrams out with home's in parallel..
Course my mill limits are all in parallel and wired Normaly open of course so quite a bit of work to alter that one.. But will probably have to so all the tools are on the same page.. Going to be a pain in the but though..
