Looks good, Scott. I still think the Spindle CW and CCW icons are a bit confusing - look like undo and redo to me Wink I think if you add a cylinder beside the arrows they would look better.

Did you find the way how to add the tool offset number DRO?

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?
