Well, I fired up my future plasma table today.
Actually, I just ran two of the motors, but for me it was a milestone.
Hooked up the breakout board, geckos and had the motors sitting on the garage floor. Ran a simple square pattern in mach2 demo version and repeatedly watched in amazement as the motors ran one way then the other.
My wife just rolled her eyes.
Now I just have to mount the motors to the table.
I still have no clue how to hook up the limit switches so I'll have to keep reading more cnczone.
Wish me luck.
