Although I am an electrician my conversion has been plauged with problems
Computer device conflicts that took 4 hours to resolve.
Mach3 communication error to Break Out Board that took 16 hours to resolve.
I got to the commisioning stage and the Z axis worked perfectly, connected the Y axis and the motor was hunting. Shut off the power supply to reverse A and B channels on the encoder, turned on the power supply and boom. Y drive had a flash over and the bridge rectifiers on both secondary power supply out puts shorted. 3 circuit boards melted the copper trace and not one fuse blew. That was a week ago. Now waiting for parts and give this another try. I really, really hope you do not have the problems I have been encountering.
All the best.
