Thanks for the reply Hood. I don't recall any message but will double check when it happens again. The machine is running right now an has been happily buzzing away for the last two and a half hours. Its hooked up to a HobbyCNC Pro board through the parallel port.

General Mach Discussion / Troubleshooting
« on: September 21, 2011, 12:14:54 AM »
Hi Everyone,
I run Mach3 Mill and I'm having an intermittent problem. How do I go about troubleshooting the machine just stopping at any particular part of the code?  I can go through and do a full practice cut in MDF and then try the exact same code in decent timber and the machine will stop at a random spot. I can tell the machine to "run from here" press cycle start and it runs through the code until it gets to the same spot and stops again. If I restart Mach it will then run the whole code without a hitch. The machine can cut for several hours at a time with no problems and then it may only be just 10 minutes into another job and then fail.  Any advise on what I should be looking for would be appreciated.
All the best

Sorry guys.........I'll re-post my question in the appropriate area.  A little bit more about myself.  I worked in the IT industry for 20 years or so years, mainly in a support role and network management. Loved the interaction with the guys and gals but not so much the political side of things.
All the best

Hi Guys,
Been hanging around for a while. Built a Joe's 4x4 Hybrid that I'm very pleased with. I've been retired for a couple of years and together with the wife run a small sheep stud not far from the national capital, Canberra in Aus. Now for the rub.........how do I go about troubleshooting the machine just stopping at any particular part of the code?  I can go through and do a full practice cut in MDF and then try the exact same code in decent timber and the machine will stop at a random spot. I can tell the machine to "run from here" press cycle start and it runs through the code until it gets to the same spot and stops again. The machine can cut for several hours at a time with no problems and then it may only be just 10 minutes into a job and then fail.  Any advise on what I should be looking for would be appreciated.
All the best
Kim
