Yes this is a breakout board with four outputs only three drives so the A could become the Z ..  If a drive it's a new drive that is a bit expensive but not all that bad..........I think around $100.00........... mighht be a bit more at this point that is a cheap fix for me.........  At the rate I am loosing material I think I have bought a new drive...........*L*

I sm so much better off now at least knowing what to look for.............first I will check the connections that should be obvious fix if a problem..............next I can try the pulse.............. then last switch the drive from X to Z or Y to Z on my board they just plug in.......so switching is a pice of cake........

I really appreciate all your help............I have at least a plan of attack, I would have wandered around in that woods a long time trying to figure that out.........  It will be nice to find the problem.......even if it is the drive at least I know how to fix it.......

I understand, it's a timing issue and letting the drive have time to receive the information correctly.

I might add this is a problem that has come since Mach3 not daying it's the software but I think being more flexible things that Mach2 assumed and were hard wired three requires you choose the setting.  I think that is O>E> operator error...........or lack of knowledge...........

Mine are both set to "0" Well maybe ................ I can try that easy enough but what to set it for.  It is so strange tough can act up once then run all the rest of the program and then next time can act up many times in a row...........???  This is strange...........  I can surely switch the drives around and also increase the Dir Pulse should the step pulse change too?

I am afraid I do not know that.  I know I have recently and usually monthly when in use lubricate the screw all of them XY & Z axis.  They are all equipped with anti backlash nuts mounted to the mechanism.  The screws are 4 turn per inch that I know and the motors are 270 ox 1/8  pretty standard stuff there. 

One thing I did not mention and it just slipped my mind.  This last time when things went into the weeds, I was trying to move the Z axis down and down was up  did that several times then all at once it moved correctly.  I am not sue that says anything but now you have it.
