Picked this up for next to nothing, wondering if anyone else is running one with Mach? If so was there anything special needed? I have converted a compact 5 cnc to use Mach 3 in the past. Would also like to see initial configurations of someone successful conversion.

I'm not familiar with Welturn, but I have converted my compact 5 to run Mach3. Glad to exchange notes with you. I have the steppers working well, still trying to figure out spindle control at this point.

Peter,

I am unsure of whether my controller has the converter you are asking about... My gut says no. I bought the machine in 2006 and it has taken till now for me to be able to attempt to do anything withit. I purchased it second hand so no documentation came with it.

Hi all,

Bought this setup some time ago and never had the time to setup. I have spent the last several nights going through relevant posts that I could find. Here is my problem: X and Y steppers will activate in hold position but will not jog. I have tried adjusting the steps up and down as well as adjusting the acceleration and velocity. Best return on this was minute twitter of the axis, but no jog. I have reloaded Mach3 and rebooted, I have installed the correct xml file. I am running out of options and thinking that it is most likely something small that I am overlooking. any help would be appreciated.
