Hi Hood,

Were getting closer!
So I swapped the X and Y around and now the Y axis works on the program and not the X so it is the board!!!
I went ahead and ordered a new board last night just incase so that should be here for the weekend hopefully....

I would like for now to connect to the spare drive on this board but im not certain how to find the pin numbers? Do you know anywhere that could tell me? as googling around isnt really helping much!
My board is attached it is the TB6560 board

Sounds good to me Hood,

I will give this a go tomorrow after work.
I'm guessing if this is the problem then I could use the 4th spare drive on the board for the Y axis?
Just change the numbers in Mach3 in ports and pins?

To be honest Hood I don't.
I bought this from eBay as a home built machine and was working fine until i moved it a few months ago (maybe 6 or more?).
I haven't used this since then and just set it back up to run. I know its got a breakout board on it but I don't think it has anything else (no drive boards for the motors).
They are run straight off the breakout board!

I want to get this working again to make wooden craft items for my little buisness Ive started with my girlfriend. Make enough money to buy a decent machine!
So I'm now guessing I need a new board as it could be that what is the problem.
Might try a cheap one on ebay to test? lol
Do you have any suggestions or recomendations?

Your help is very much appreciated,
Gav

Ok so,
Set the kernel to 25KHz and no joy.
Then tried the sherline mode and that was worse! The MPG mode wouldn't even work then either so have set it back as it was.
Im really confused with this!

Hi Hood,

Ive just tried the manual input and every axis works fine just as it should.
I will go and set the kermel to 25KHz and reboot as you say. Then if that doesn't work i'll try the sherline mode!
Ive tried 2 computers so know its not that thats the fault as this happens with both! May well be the board then. Will see what the next steps bring.....

Thanks Gav

Sorry Hood,

Is MDI moving it manually with the jog buttons? If so then yes but if MDI is manually inputting data then im really not sure what to type in to make it move!

Thanks Gav

Ok thanks Hood,

Would you say that it most probably would be the board on the machine then?

Its strange everything works fine if i do a drilling program or even jog manually. But not if I run a cutting program.
