General Mach Discussion / mach3 lathe homing and help
« on: January 06, 2013, 03:11:41 PM »
Hi All,
Hope you can help, I have a boxford 240 cnc lathe(slant bed) i have just converted to mach3 everything went well, but i have a few questions.
When i try to home the axis nothing happens when I press home all. The limit switches all work fine show up on the diagnostic screen, cant work it out.
Also some basics, jogging i press right arrow key z axis moves right dro moves + and opposite for left i think this is correct.
The x i think is wrong i push up arrow x axis moves up but dro moves - i am confused my lathe shows z+ right and x+ up.
is this something to do with the toolpost being on the rear?

Thanks for any help

john
