jasminder, its a worm drive.
do i need to keep vb script running in the back ground or just close it.
when i push the play button on the vb script it asks me for current tool and the turret will move a bit.
but when i type t0202 into the mdi bar nothing happens

Thank you very much, do I just copy and paste that into the vscript.
As I said I am completely useless at this part of it.

Thanks for the reply, I am fairly sure it's a stepper motor and have it wired as such. It works fine, the proxy is on the turret.
I assume it's there to tell the system to reverse to lock it

Hi and help lol
I have just done a conversion on a boxford mt2, the machine has a 8 position atc on it. I think the way it operates the stepper motor  rotates it  one way then reverses it to lock it in. There is only one proxy on it.
Do I need a macro to run it, lol I don't even know what a macro is or how to go about writing one. I have searched and seen a few macro's and to be honest it's just complete jibberish to me.
I think I need help

Thanks in advance
