Thanks for your reply Mike. I hope to pick up the joystick next week. I'll let you know if I can get it to control the Z axis.

Mike,

I appreciate the information. Since I've never been into gaming I going to buy a Microsoft compatible joystick.
I was also wondering when using the joystick on the x and Y, axis can I move the router slowly or will it simply speed to the end of the axis?
Can the joystick also work on the Z axis?

I understand a joystick can be used under Mach3. My question is whether it needs to be a specific type and whether it can be connected to the computer with a USB connection. I hope this isn't to basic of a question from this newbie who should have delivery of his machine very soon.

General Mach Discussion / Question on Mach3 Wizards
« on: March 02, 2011, 11:59:03 AM »
I'm getting ready to install Mach3 on a computer while I wait for delivery of my CNC. I see that during the loading of Mach3 their is an option to load Wizards.
My question: Do any of the wizards (that are in the Mach3 installation program) require a license or are they included in the license for Mach3??

General Mach Discussion / Newbie looking for help

I'm a retired hobby nut that is getting close to purchasing my first CNC router. I installed Mach 3 on my computer as part of getting ready and am trying to get a basic understanding of its operation; however I'm not really sure how to go about it. The first thing I ran into on the screen was the Reset Button with a scrolling message that says "Emergency Mode Active". Below that is a message that says "E-Stop Requested".
Any help/guidance I can get would be greatly appreciated.

General Mach Discussion / Newbie looking for guidance

I'm a retired hobbyist who is on the verge of purchasing my first CNC Router. I've been doing a lot of reading on forums about the operation and software programs and have 2 questions that I'm looking for some guidance. I'm planning to buy an entry level machine with a 24 X 24 working area.
1 If I want to make a sign that is 30" long is it possible to pause the machine at a  pre-programmed point to reposition the wood?
2 I may be using a Bosch Colt router which seems to have an overheating problem. Can the software be programmed to allow a pause of sufficent time to allow it to cool down?
