Trying to install a smooth stepper on my PCNC 1100 mill. I have everything working except the spindle. I cannot make any relays energize from the control software to make the spindle run. Does anyone have a Tormach that has successfully made this work. I am using the Mach 3 stand alone version as Tormach does not support there mach platform anymore and someone from Tormach told me the ESS plugin will not work with there legacy mach program.

I can run the spindle manually from the front panel of the machine. Once I start the spindle, power is applied to the VFD and the spindle starts. I still have no control from the control computer. If I shut the spindle down from the front panel, power remains on the vfd but I still have no control from the computer. I am hoping someone on here has gone through this and has some answers and please forgive my ignorance. I have very little electrical knowledge, just enough to get me in trouble. Does anyone know how Tormach supplies and applies power to the vfd contactor. There are also 5 ice cube relays on the bob so any help with which if any of them feed the VFD is appreciated. Thanks in advance for any replies.

Can some tell me how to change my table display. I would like for x to display north and south on the display and y to display east and west. Right now my x displays east and west and y is north and south. I had it working this way but something caused it to change and I can't remember how I changed it before. When jogging the machine, all movement is correct. Up and down arrow moves x north and south and left and right arrows move y east and west but the display shows opposite and when running a program x is east and west and y is north and south. Hope this makes sense and thanks for any help.
