i was wondering how you solved the motor spindle connection to activate it with mach3
or did you left it unused and activate it manual?

hi, i am not using the spindle on mach3, rather manually.

Thanks Hood for suggesting not to go for the TB drives.
Here is what I bought instead, simply because they are easily available from a manufacturer here in India.
1. Rhino controls 3-axis BOB x1off
2. Rhino controls stepper driver X 3off
3. NEMA23 1.9Nm, 2.8A bipolar 4 wire stepper motors X3off
4. 24v 10A PSU x1off
5. Estop switch X 1off
6. micro limit switches X6off
7. lovejoy couplers X3off

And here is the link to the first test setup on Mach3 running on win7

More as I move ahead..

3 x 57HS76  3A 270 oz/in  stepper motor
1 x 5 axis Mach3 compatible breakout board
1 x DB25 parallel cable
1 x USB cable
3 x signal cables
3 X NEMA23 stepper motor mounting brackets
6 X limit switches
1 X E stop switch
3 X suitable flexible couplers
1 X Mach3 USB handwheel manual controller

Thanks in advance
