  I just set a 4th axis up on my Taig. I bought a 6 inch rotary from Grizzly, a 207 oz stepper from Circuit Specialists and I am using the original Taig controller.

My settings for A axis:
Steps - 80
Vel. - 50
Accel - 400
Pulse - 13
Dir pulse - 1

1 degree = .125
So I just multiply the degree desired by .125 and it goes there.

eg. 360 x .125 = 45 (360 degrees)
eg.  10 x .125 = 1.25 (10 degrees)
eg 22.5 x .125 = 2.8125 (22 1/2 degrees)

Hope this helps,

What part of AZ ar you in?


Have you compared your BIOS setup(s) between the two Dell's?  I'd focus in on that to start with.  Make sure your parallel port is configured for bi directional and enabled.

I had a battle with a 1.8 emachine T series that I never could get it to run the driver test ($400.00 machine).  I stripped it down to bare minimum software and hardware, nothing... the only solution I could come up with in the end is that the onboard video was killing it.

Anyone want to buy a emachine!  Just kidding I gave it to the kids.


I just set up a HP Netserver 2000r with 1 933 Piii and it runs Mach smooth as butter. 
I took the server software off and installed a copy of XP Pro. and thats it no fuss.

Best part about it was FREE!
