Hallo Rc

No the gecko drives can Unplug on the electrical connections and I undid the screws removed the drives. the new drives was fitted in reverse.What I did see when I exchanged the drives at our local supplier, was that there was a stack of these drives that were returned to him. I can now make 30 to 50 components and it keeps the size within 2 to 5 microns .

Hood I think A guy Like me does not have a clue to what Mach Can and Can not do.Like the OEMTriggers I do not have the Know how to Understand the Functions it does in Mach.The only way I think Is to play With Mach.Now that the Turret is working I have to Set up a hand wheel System for the Machine But because I have used most of the inputs for Lpt 1 and 2 I will have to use  serial Modbus. The reason I want to use that is on the Video`s they show you how to setup A pot for spindle overide and that Can also be used for feedrate overide.I`ll be using the forum a lot as I have two Milling Machines that I want to convert to mach3. Both of the Machines is Old and the controls shot And all of this just so I can Machine Spares for my Other Hobby .I am more a mechanical man Because my Day time Job is to repair Nc machines.To All the Guy`s reading this forum I you Have a problem Some one that Knows what they doing will Help you If they can and with out payment Thanks to Hood And Graham.

Hood I think you must know the do and do not`s. Like you said you have to have a book to look at what code  you can use.

If I use the inputs like his macro my feedback is defferent to his in other words my hardwirring is different to his.That is why I use those inputs.
