Got the machine running! thanks everyone.

Fine tune.

the spindle is still a bit of a problem. I've calibrated with a new pulley to 33,000 this caused the spindle speed settings to work on a wider range ( 0-650) . the previous calibration was at 24,000 and gave me a range ( 0-250) spindle speed.

How do I fine tune my spindle?
thanks again.

Thank you very much for your help. I will go try these out.

I don't believe that Mach 3 is getting any feedback. I did see a setting for special settings (use spindle feedbach  and or close loop spindle control) but have not used.

Thanks, I'll innumerate.

1) I can run my spindle, but have no idea how fast is moving. It will only run at at speeds no grater than 200; of course  i don't know how fast 200 is . But I can slow it down or speed it up with in the range ( 0- 200)
so when I try to run gcode that has s600 it sends the spindle into limit mode.

2) I have trouble understanding the homing settings; and how they relate to table size. Also the "go to zero" function. How does "0" relate to "home".
I've played with all the homing settings and have a good idea as to how they should work, but can't make all the connections fast enough.
The machine coordinates v/s the home coordinates; and how these relate to the soft limits.

I've watch a few videos on the subject, but its the small details that i am missing.

3) Calibrating the steps to inches moved.
I did the auto function for this. but I know it is not accurate.

4) lazy cam

I need to be walked through the process of importing a file into lazy cam, confirming the specs of my file ( size and shape or correct ) then exporting out the correct gcode for the file.
