So, I have a Smithy 622 mini mill, old pc it was running pooped the bed.  Previously everything was functional for 3+ years.

Fresh motherboard (foxconn N15235), and a syba (SD-PEX10005) PCIe parallel port adapter.

Fresh install of current version Mach and brought over my old config and license file.  E-Stop works, DRO's zero and increment, motors don't turn.  I've configured the port correctly, and swapped the adapter card in 2 different slots on the mobo.  The LPT port is set to 'never use a interrupt' and also enabled legacy plug and play detection.  No luck.  At this point i'm guessing this PCIe adapter doesn't want to play along.....  any suggestions????

Thanks,

Matt

General Mach Discussion / PWM spindle control - Smithy 622 - Help Please.
« on: December 02, 2008, 11:10:18 AM »
We've recently purchased a Smithy 622 mini-mill, and i'm currently working on getting it setup with Mach and a 13" touchscreen.  X,Y,Z all configured fine, motion is very nice and repeatable.

I've gone through the mach quick start tutorial, and the larger support document, and i havn't quite gotten the spindle under control.  Any help appreciated.

controller board is a PMDX-110 (combination 132&106)

LPT pins for spindle:
pin 14 > spindle motor direction signal from PC
pin 16 > spindle speed as PWM signal from PC

Mach setup stuffs:::::






When i hit the toggle spindle button in mach, the spindle turns on and hits full speed (3500rpm), hit the toggle spindle button again, and the spindle will reverse direction full speed (3500rpm).  it won't toggle off. 

I'm sure it's something simple, i just haven't been able to figure it out.  Any help appreciated!
