Thanks Hood

Thanks for the replies guys and especially the link the youtube video....  My machines sounds much like that.... except minus the composition of traditional christmas music.  Is this not an issue?  I hope it is not.

(Things I have changed) nothing really,  I had an issue a few days ago with my power supply to my driver so I had to disconnect my port and bring it into the office to take a look at it. But there was nothing wrong with it, my on/off switch had some dust in it and just needed a quick cleaning. that is the only thing can I really think of. 

I understand that the stepper motors make noise but these sounds are at different pitches and frequencies, and it varies on the speed of stepper motor. It is not quiet noise, I can handle and understand a little noise  but this is something more out of a sci-fi / 80's synth music going on.   

I am sure there is something I can do to make it more manageable, any suggestions?

General Mach Discussion / stepper motors making "weird" electronic noise
« on: January 14, 2010, 07:11:51 PM »
3 axis wood router using xylotex driver and 497 oz.in. stepper motor. When moving running a file there is sound like electronica noise (its what a whistling cyborg would sound like). The steppers were not making the noise a week ago, I am not sure what has caused this issue. Any suggestions on how to fix it. Is this a shielding issue? If so.... my cords are shielded.

thanks you for your time.

Ok, let me explain...

I am looking through a bunch of stapled sheets of paper that were poorly organized by the previous owner. On one of the pages it has a table which now after going over more thoroughly I believe is part of the packet of information on xs-3525/8s-3. On this table it has a header of Step Sequencing and goes through headers that read full, half, quarter, eighth, angle, note: and underneath these columns  consist of numbers. At the bottom of this table reads 360 is 4 FULL steps. I put that in the post because I thought it was relative information. I am not sure if I am taking out it of context  of if it pertains to what we are looking for.   

Thanks so much Hood!

Your a lifesaver!

Thanks for the quick response.  First off  they are stepper motors; not to sound like a complete idiot but how do i find out the step of the drives?  I will give you all the information I have:  Nema23 mounting 497 oz Dual shaft Stepper Motor and 360 is 4 full steps. The driver is a xs-3525/8s-3 purchased through www.xylotex.com

I am new to Mach3 and setting up a mill. I inherited a mill and I am in the process of putting it back together. I am a little confused; frankly I do not want to make a mistake and screw anything up.   The X and Y  Acme 3/4" x 6tpi and the Z has a 1/2" at 10tpi.    The y axis is driven by dual lead screws and has to belts running from the motor to the left and the right lead screw.  I am not sure how to do calculation.  The timing pulley has a pitch of .375, 10 grooves and a belt width of .5. Attached are some photos.

If there is anyone who can help me out it would be greatly appreciated. I really want to get this machine up and running. 

Thanks so much for your time.

Hello all,

I am new to Mach and relatively new to cnc. I have ran a cnc router but this is the first time I will be putting on together from scratch. I hope that I will be able to get some guidance from all of you on this forum.
