Thanks JohnHaine and Hood....   I have also recently rebuilt my machine and had an issue with referencing stopping short.   The "debounce" setting seems to have worked for me.

Hood,  I have my switch shielding attached to my controller ground.   That is correct, isn't it?

General Mach Discussion / Spindle Control HowTo Help
« on: February 02, 2009, 10:09:36 PM »
Hello everyone,

I completed a home build machine last year and I'm now looking to do my first enhancement.  I would appreciate any help in locating some how-to or general guides on adding circuitry to enable M03 and M05.  I have enough electronics background to get by (maybe to be dangerous), enough to build the "HobbyCNC" controller that runs my machine.  Here are my parameters: 
  Mach3 (obviously)
  HobbyCNC controller kit
  Spindle is a standard Craftsman 2.5 HP router, 115v, 11Amps.

Any guidance or input is appreciated.   Here is a link to my machine for anyone interested...


Thanks in advance,

Hi Everyone,

My name is Patrick and I'm very new to Mach3 and CNC in general.  I completed a home built CNC machine in 2008 and I having a blast with it.  I've been doing woodworking for almost 25 years and this was like starting all over again.  Here's a YouTube of the machine...


I'm off to post some questions...
