Hi Robert,

Use your Fluke to measure the voltage of one of the pins directly on the PP cable connector. Unplug it from the C11G, put one of the probes on one of the direction pins, say pin 3, and the other on any of 18-25 (ground). Now using the arrows of the corresponding axis, jog it alternately each direction. The direction pin should be changing its state and you should see the readings reflect it.

OK. Thanks. The way the F1 is, I think I will not be able to connect the two sides. I think the only way is doing two drains, one on each side, and interconnecting them underneath.

Nice, Sam!

Tell me something, how do you plan to make the coolant flow from the right side of the tray to the left side where the drain appears to be? My F1 sits the same way in the middle of the tray and I don't know where to do the drain and how to make the coolant flow there.

Thanks, Hood. It's a bit cleared now. Interesting too!

Hood,

Pretty much what I guessed. Just didn't know that the number of turns was known... Thought you'd start it and watch it till you think it was enough and then stop it Grin

But I am curious now, how do you generate the G-code from the info you entered in the DROs?

Yep, Hood. Simple indeed Grin ... Spindle which acts like a linear axis... afraid you lost me there.

Is the chuck on the left being called X and the stepper on the right being called A? Aren't they supposed to be rotating continuously, while the longitudinal axis feeds back and forth? How do you achieve the continuous rotation with a linear axis in Mach3?

OK. Then apparently I don't understand how it operates Grin

Hood,

How do you slave a spindle? In Mach or you just split the signal to the 2 drivers?

Hood,

There is a wizard that does just that. You touch off 3 points on a circumference of a circle (or 4 if you like) and it automatically calculates the centre. You probably knew it, but just in case Wink

And while on the topic I will add another method I use to centre a chuck on the mill's table. Hold a round bar in the mill, lower the head and chuck the other end of the bar in the chuck. Now it's perfectly centred, zero the DRO's and use clamp the chuck to the table. Fast and easy.
