Thanks Guys,

You are right a dedicated machine for both would be more advantages. Mechanical I can work out it is mostly the componentry and electronics to get my head around. Programing and experimenting will come next.

Any Books that you know of?

Thanks.

Thanks Rich,

Does it work in conjunction with Mach3 or a stand alone software package?

Hi guys,

Has anyone used oris using an Express card parallel port for a laptop without a parallel port. Have you had any success or do they not work. Will a usb to parallel port cable work? is there anything else that ca work with a laptop without a parallel port?

Thanks Gents.

Ron.

Hi Guys Thanks for your help it is much appreciated. Still have not resolved the issue of the wrong axis configuration but will persist. Am Happy for the moment to see things rotating almost as they should. Still have a bit more fine tuning with the motors. It is great to know that there is a support base like this. I hope I can contribute to others once I have learnt a bit more about the wholle CNC bizzo.

I Have now movement on all axis although they do not correspond to the board. Axis X is axis Z on the board, Axis z is axis A on the board and Y is Y on the board. Cannot seem to get x to work of the board. I have changed the pin addresses on the Motor output and nothing seems to get me there.  The Problem was not the mother board but the wrong pins. Has any one had this trouble?
