HEY guys it's me again,

I fixed my backlash problem, and things are working out now, but something extremely weird just happened,

The x axis suddenly stopped moving, see how if you disconnect the parallel port the computer still thinks it's connected and keeps on trying to move the axis, well it doesn't move the x axis, but it moves the other two noramlally, I don't get it, someone HELPPPPPPP

well I read your promt reviews, (i am surprised by the length of time that took you to answer). I went to my mill and found a little backlash. I tightened a screw and that almost eliminated the problem, my text almost looks perfect now, I probably have to look into the whole chain of elements to eliminate this completely....

question, shoouldn't there be a setting for backlash in the software itself, I mean, when you are doing things manually you always adjust for this yourself, just a thought.....maybe there is a setting and I don't know!!!!!

thanks guys, appreciate the promt response on the previous question!!!!!

I am using Mach2 with a bridgeport shopmaster unit to engrave, well trying to!!!

I tunned the stepper motors fine I think, and I am getting readable text, but somehow it looks like I am loosing steps, the letter "O" for instance, the cutting tool would have to finish right where it started right, well, it does't quite do so, I have been playing with different units/min different minimum pulse width, and still getting the same result, any ideas???
