General Mach Discussion / Jog / cursor mystery
« on: November 11, 2015, 09:47:58 PM »
Mach3  turn
GCODE executes both axes just fine.
Fast Jog ok on both axes
MPG ok on both axes
Z slow jog ok both directions
X slow jog in - direction ok
X slow jog in + direction no response, no DRO change.

Config hotkeys shows codes corresponding to cursor keys when I push them.
Have changed keyboards.  Have changed PCs.  No improvement

Summary, X slow jog in + direction (right cursor) doesn't move carriage or
show on DRO, all else works properly.

Help please! /and thanks /mark

Have an Emco CNC5 converted to Xylotex and pac sci steppers, using a dc treadmill motor
for spindle as the original was missing.  (KBIC or similar DC speed control).
Manual turret switch, not cnc at this point.
Also have a Prolight mill plus Sherline rotary table 4th axis, all also using xylotex.
HOWEVER, shortly plan to retro both to gecko 250s and 50vdc for added speed.

What do I make?  Hmmmm....
Mainly repair and restoration of antique clocks is what occupies my spare time,
retired EE turned golfer (duffer).
