General Mach Discussion / making Cont. Jog as default?
« on: May 23, 2013, 12:18:51 AM »
How can i make the change Continuous Jog as defalt; I have made to many crashes when I change from cont. to step jog mode & back -n-forth.....I'll forget to switch back to Cont. jog ,,,& when I do jog the amount I want, & I let off the button it keeps moving, I'll quickly try to hit esc key.. frustrated that I'm in the step mode.....  OK heres what I want to do,  when I do want to use the the Step Jog mode,  once it has made its move, I want Mach to automatically switch to the Continuous Jog mode..(I want to make it the default)     I have broken to many bits because of this.... Your help is very appreciated

I separated the oval file in 1/2 vertically, made 2 separate programs, I secured the 4'x10' alum. sheet @ the left edge of router table, zeroed X&Y,  I cut the left 1/2 program,  I scribed 24" on the material
moved it to the left till 24" lined up on the right edge of the table, re secure material & aligned bit where it left off, zeroed X&Y , started the right 1/2 program , & it routed good , no errors.....
I'm sure there is a better way of doing this , but job is completed...... thanks for all the help  , thankyou Mach3...........signguy

What do I need to do so I can route longer materials on my router? My router table is 48" x 96".  the ends are open for what ever lengths of material.
How do I program Mach to restart the routing where it left off ?  I have a 10' sheet of aluminum to route a large oval , I will route the 8' of it. index it,
move the material over & resecure it .  This is where it is confusing to me on how to restart mach whereit left off,  your help needed , thanks   signguy

« on: August 16, 2007, 10:29:20 PM »
I have had this wells index mill for about 3-years , the only way I have been operating it is by jogging, programming does not work..  After having success with Mach3 on my
4x8 router I am now ready to get this mill operating on Mach3 as well.  The machine responds very well to the jog commands ,,,,Here's what I want to do,, Use existing drives
& steppers  ,I need a schematic so I can find the pulse input & dir  pulse.  (wells index CNC 700 summit dana control)  or if anyone has any other comments or suggestions
I would appreciate it .............thanx    signguy..

Found replacement drive.  Z-axis  movement in both directions..... :).thanx for da help.

Just got Mach3 up & running , then my z-drive went out (moves in 1 direction only)  The driver is superior elec. slo-syn drive.
I'm looking for a replacement ,  or a schematic for local tech to repair it.   need help   

Hello. everyone...Ive been in the sign bus.  for 30 years now...specializing outdoor illuminated signs,,,especially Neon signs, they are the best looking eye attraction.....I bought a router about a year ago , haven't been able to git it operating correctly....it has slo-syn  2000 drives,,,Superior elec. steppers...
The program that came with it is HPGL that takes my design from Corel draw & tells the LPT program then sends signals to the drives..  All I have accomplished is straight line cuts it does not interpet fonts correctly WARNING! please don't fall for this ...the wiring is direct from 3 parallel ports. There is a HAM (hardware assist module)connected to the motherboard port(378) joystick connected to the back of the HAM.  I have been worrying with this too long
I am so glad that I have run across this website that is so informational ... Yes I need your help to get this router up & running.... who can tell me where to
buy the "isolated breakout boards" & your comments about the drives & steppers I have ,,,,will they work  with Mach???
