The control box is connected directly to the tower via a parallel cable.

Appreciate the quick response!!
I used a backup copy of Mach I made when I got the license. It also has a copy of the .xml file I used. The externalo control box was a kit I built for 4 steppers that I got from HobbyCNC in about 2009. I don't remember the model. Like I said, Mach seems to function fine in simulation mode on the "new" tower, and the controller, when turned on, will not allow the steppers to be turned by hand.

When you mention a "specific Plugin" for the controller, is that like a preprocessor for my (Sherline) mill and/or lathe?

General Mach Discussion / Problem with re-config of Mach3
« on: January 08, 2021, 11:47:23 AM »
I got Mach3 a few yrs ago and it worked fine till computer crashed (something on mother board went bad.). I let system sit for a yearr or so. Just picked up an older XP machine and loaded Mach onto it. Everything seems to function properly in simulation mode. I'm using the same HobbyCNC control box and other equipment. When I turn on the power to the Control box, the steppers lock up as normal. However, Mach does not appear to be sending any signals to the controller or steppers. Tried direct commands, jogging, nothing. I'm thinking it is in the configuration, but it's been a long time since I fiddled with that. Any thoughts or ideas to isolate and correct the problem would be appreciated! Thanks!

That's what I'm starting to think! On the other hand, if I'm making a new page and putting that "picture" on it, I don't see why it is any different than building the other pages.

I've looked around, but can't find any info- or a way- to put the BACKGROUNDJOG Pendant on the Left side of the Mach3 screen. I'd like to not cover the toolpath screen with it. As always, any assistance is greatly welcomed!

Doesn't look like you got much help yet! I have same question. I played with it for a few hours and still don't see a way to change it. Did you have any luck>
