 i wood be happy to tell you if i new
if you go to build your own cnc i have the 2x4 black toe except i made my table 8 ft long i have 74.5 x axis 24in y axis
about 6 inch z axis any way you would have to see from there kits   i have specifications 5vdc relay and i have 4 limit switches inputs  and   support mach3
 i think i learned something that i don't have enough pins to do everything on limits and home
   break out board 5 axis 36 volt drivers at 1.5 amps  5vdc usb port 1 parallel cable i haven't
  ripped wires out yet
  no  ( no manuals) that would of been way to easy . i got caught between new electronics  and old video' no man land
the only reason i have made it this far is because of this web site and all the help in here.
 every thing has seemed to settle down x and y limits are working .
 thank you
waiting on 22/2 shielded cable

 thanks Dave and Cosha
  i think you are right.
 that my plan right after i get everthing set up this PC is going off internet ( was) (new plan) get out dell PC with (widows vista yuk) put it on line take this PC  strip it down just for mach 3 and addons, cam bam lazycam thinking of a good carve software too and if that dose not work i will buy a new PC   
  i ordered double strand shielded  22 GA cable or wire 
 i have x and y limits working for now! 
 the weird stuff has seemed to stop 
 but i going to wire z back up to the switches .
i think  need the signal so i can (ref all to home) in the (machine cord)  watch limit video 20 times i not sure what i am missing butt i missing the point on allot of stuff  it is very embarrassing
 i have never worked with shielded cable before. and paid much attention to it
 but i am going to change to a (normally closed system ) on my limit switches
 there (was) a issue with my PC utility. I hope i got it .
 everything is  complex to me and if i don't have the switches  I'm going to destroy my cnc .
 also going to do a better ground system 
 If there any suggestions  keep me  track
 thank you for your help Dave and Cosha
 i ask if someone could  give me example of pin order for 3 axis  X++ X-- X home Y++ Y--Y home Z++ Z-- Z home  when i auto set it will use #10 pin 3 to 5 times  i don't know the right  combination  for sure
In diagnostics screen limit triggered hard fault might light up on more than its Axis row
I'm not using coolant pump spindle motors .
not much land dam few cattle co. (less land) river still rising. barn floor is mud now
