Hey Fastest1 and Jeff,

The new Gecko controller is in.  

Can I tie this power source in directly?

and

I've bought pre-wired cables - what wires on the new cables should be attached to which coming out of the motor?

Joe

Thanks for the call John - very helpful scoop indeed.

On thinking about it a bit, I just don't have the time or expertise to configure this afterall!

So if there's anyone in the community here who can help with setting the whole thing up and shipping it down that would work just fine.  I can either ship a Gecko to someone who can help or can buy a used one from someone who has the gear already.

Thanks Everybody.

General Mach Discussion / Mach3 and Gecko540
« on: February 07, 2014, 10:07:30 AM »
Good Morning Everyone!

I'm looking for someone who either has a gecko540 controller configured for Mach3 to run a chinese YOCNC 3040 desktop router,

OR,

someone who can configure a gecko540 controller and cables for me.   

After running one project on the provided controller box - it's shot.  Immediately called Gecko and IMMEDIATELY realized (with the help of a great tech rep) that I don't have the skill set to configure it.   :-\

If anyone can help me with this I'd appreciate it.

Thanks everybody.

General Mach Discussion / New Controller box for Chinese 3040??
« on: January 21, 2014, 02:59:54 PM »
Good Afternoon everyone from snowy washington dc.

Can anyone recommend where I can by a new controller box and cables for one of the world famous chinese 3040t routers.

Mine is kaput, and, being well out of my technical range to fix, I'm looking for a new controller and cables to simply swap the whole thing out and get on with the projects that have been on hold for over 30 days now as I've waded through this. I'm running a licensed Mach3 program a windows platform. I'm asking for cables as I understand that shielding may be an issue and might as well address that now as well. 

Not looking to replace it with the same controller - rather something some of you fine experts might recommend.

I'm running intricate dimensional artcam files.

If any one has a used unit they would like to get rid of that works fine, I'm more than happy to look at it.

Thanks Everyone,
Joe
