If you mean replace the OEM connector with the brk. brd. Then the answer is, no it would not fit. But I think I see what you're driving at. If it did fit it would be right next to the Gecko's and the wires would make more sense??

Well what I did in there was to disconnect the Gecko's and run the wires through to the breakout board enclosure box. I then wired up an on/off switch to the power cord for the power supply board, also from cnc4pc. I then plugged it into a power strip, turned it on and promptly blew a breaker. It seems I wired the on/off switch wrong and since it was a lighted one, I fried that. I then discovered that all I need do was to wire straight to the power supply. It was then I realized that nothing was happening, and, since then I've tried to re wire the Geko's back to the printer cable output and get back to where I was before I tried the addons. I hope that adds a little to my lament. Also take a look at my other post Breakout Board Operation Questions, there's more bad news. Oh man I'm in deep!!!!!!! :-[ :'( :'(

Yes my machine is small, easy to carry, just the frames and two enclosures. I've PM'd you stating my current situation, but I look forward to meeting with you. Thank you, I'm sure that with a little one on one I'll be all set. Thanks again.

String, what do you mean when you say Port Out Receptical? Is this something that your printer cable hooks to and you wire the drives to ?
In my OEM box, it has a printer cable plug, where, in the box the Gecko's are wired. ( D something 25) The type of plug the printer cable uses. And I in my panic srewed up the hotkey area of Mach 3. What keys are 32 and 33 need to find them to correct hotkeys. Now my motors don't move as before I started this addon, all they do is screem and bang, but no movement. And I can't seem to change the motor tunig values. Boy have I screwed up.

Terry, I paniced and cut the wires off to the box I mounted the breakout brd and power supply to. I then re wired the Geko's to the port out receptacle. I will try today to reconfigure them and run trials.

I like that idea Brian, and it would sure help me a lot. I would be willing to do that. How can we see to it that more members who live in this area can get in on this to?.

I don't know about XML files Brian. All I got was the board from them. I will try to attach the schematic for you to see, but I cut the wires to my enclosure and re wired the Gecko's, I'm not sure I did it right though. I will try today to re test my motors and configure them correctly.
