Thanks Brett   
I was able to get it to jog all three axis for me thru the system hotkeys I was originally under the impression that it had to be mapped thru keygrabber but then I remembered that it was recognized by the keygrabber as a keyboard so I mapped the jog hot keys to the six blue buttons in the center of the snipa works pretty good I just gotta get a longer usb cable now .

Hi Brett
Did you ever get this working? 
I just got my router going a few weaks ago and haven't really had the time to fool with it .
If I could get mine to jog my axis around I'd be happy .
I've read the keygrabber section from the modifications manual  but I didn't see anything that specificaly mentioned the codes for jogging  each axis  .
what I would like to do is map the arrows on the cyber snipa to the jog buttons on the jog control in mach can you tell me what those are or how to do it ?
Thanks Bob

General Mach Discussion / two motors one drive?
« on: June 21, 2007, 04:37:36 PM »
Hey Guys  can I run two identical motors off the same drive as long as I don't exceed the amp rating of the drive ? 
They are pacsci motors  65v @5 amps  I want to run two of them on a pacsci 165 v  13 amp drive . Can I do it and would it work .
I have two x-axis screws, I tried to mechanically link them via a chain but there is some amount of slop and I'm getting binding .
So I thought that I would put a seperate motor on each screw and run them both off the same drive would that work? what do you think  possible or not ? :-\
 Thanks Guys for your help

As soon as  I get the bugs worked out of my machine I too will buy a license but for now I'm still buying hardware and making modifications as I go some day I'll get it right until then I'll  have to stick to the demo .

General Mach Discussion / limitations?

 Hi guys has the 1,000 line limitation been changed to 500 ? I had downloaded the latetest version at the time it was .73 I  believe and it wouldn't run more than 499 or 500 lines . I uninstalled it and reinstalled lockdown version .65 and it will run  999 lines . Have the line limitations changed? Has any of the other limitations changed?
Thanks Bob
