Who made the router mount, and what model Bosch does it hold?
Router mount from CNC ROUTER PARTS http://www.cncrouterparts.com/bosch-1617-router-mount-p-192.html and router Bosch 1617 from eBay

Hello Guys
I have started another thread of me having trouble make the machine move. We are trying to figure it out what is wrong but in the meantime I will start this post to show my machine building process.  Maybe I will be able to help somebody with the build problems.
Here is the photo of rail I have use for my machine. I've purchased those from eBay. Recycled ones :-)

To cut the aluminum extrusions to the closest measurement as possible , first I set up a wooden stop block and then I cut a piece of wood and measure from block to the cut . If something were off a little I used a hammer to hit the stop block.

I've used my miter saw to cut the extrusions. Below is the picture of the saw and blade I used. Also I include a video showing how smooth was the cutting process :-)

Click on the picture below to see the video

All cut pieces

What is nice about 8020 aluminum extrusion is that you can purchased the profile with grooves which later on help you a lot to align the pieces together

Below I show you how I make my feet :-)

Main frame assembled

Ballscrews mounted

Machine feet mounted

Here I machined plates that will be used to connect ballscrews to gantry bottom plate

Z axis plate machined and mounted

Z axis actuator mounted

Not a best picture but this is bosch router mount

These are gantry side plates that holds everything together

And time to show my control box. I receive the box for free :-) and assembled everything myself

Fuses for each axis driver

I have not used these motors but I did use the dumpers

I do see the reading change. But later I will check the X axis as per your instructions.

Emergency button working!!! But it turn on when I pull the button instead when I press it.

When I go to "Diagnostics" in Mach3 there I can see there 1 of the 24 pins illuminated green and when I press or pull the emergency button it goes on and off.
Also when I go to Input and Output signal everything is red crossed except the emergency button

I'm sorry I got 4V

Got 5V. What's next :-) ?

Is the cable your useing from you parallel port a straight thru?   
Yes. I purchase the cable from automationtechnologiesinc .
How to check if I powered everything up if the "master switch" is working correctly?

I tried it and it still don't work. I have connected Emergency Button and its not working either. Is it possible that I have connected the master switch incorrectly and it won't work? The led is illuminated red when I turn on the power. But when I push in the master switch nothing happens
