General Mach Discussion / At the end of my Rope!!!
« on: June 09, 2010, 12:53:35 PM »
Okay let me tell you know first hand I am not a expert on computers!! That said I have a major problem, at least to me. I have a Legacy woodworking machine that is CNC. I have had it run in the past, about a year ago, and have decided to use it again. I went to use it and all 4 stepper motors just stutter! The only thing that has changed since I last used it is the motherboard has been replaced. I have removed and installed Mach 3 a number of times with the same results. I have checked the voltage in the control box and it seems to be within specs, at least by conversation with the manufacturer, Legacy. The stepper motors will run but they seem to be stuttering. All I can say it's as if you watched the second hand on a clock, when it moves it also stops every second. I can't describe it any other way. Movement is quite noisy, all 4 of them, and obviously something is wrong. I am going to replace the parallel port wire to the control box but don't think that is the problem. I am at a loss for anything else to do. I think I now own a expensive flower planter! Legacy has been absolutely no help with solving the problem even though they ship Mach 3 with their product. My computer is as follows. If you recommend something please let me know how to change your recommendations to make it easier on me. Feel free to ask any questions since I have to get this working! Thanks in advance!!!
