Hood says I'm a smart @rse so i may e able to fix it. ;D

Well you are certainly smarter than this arse on this subject, I dont have a clue about VFD control as I use a 12.5kw servo on the lathe spindle ;D

Lol... Smart arse :D... I get called that alot too... But I grew up thinking my name was God D >:D.  I'll leave the last name for your imagination...lol...

Well heres the file.. :-\.

this is the last attemt at getting the spindle to opperate, all else works fine.

My actual gear ratio from motor to the tool is 5.25:1 and the motor only turns 1740. My rpms will be very slow, as it's not the normal CNC ::) machine.
I hope I/You/We can get this thing running... I got other stuff to do while this machine is working, lol... Like re-assemble my plasma machine, which I pried into to confirm some wiring issues..
Thanks again for all your help...

Hood, why didn't you just hook a 427 up as your spindle? LOL... High SPEED... WHOOOPoooW!!! My router spindle is only like 5 hp, but it'll sure cut the h3ll out of FOAM even witha 12"longX1"dia endmill... LOL... That's all I ever cut on it for rapid prototyping my cement originals....
Hey THANKS 4 all the help in advance. I'll need more than you'll ever expect!!!

OK I've had a look at the xml.

You have lots & lots of errors. for example on ports n pins Motor Outputs you have spindle set to use pin 14 for step AND direction

In ports n pins, spindle set up you have spindle Fwd, Rev, Mist & flood all set to use pin 1

In ports n pins, inputs you are using four pins for limits/homing these are normally to one pin unless you are using pukka homing switches

Have you got the instructions for the C11g board ? if no what revision is it ?

You need to do some reading as to how to do the wiring/pin assignments. I could change the xml but you still have to wire it correctly.

Lol Hood was right...lol..

Just want the spindle to work.
I tried 3 combinatons with step direction you got the last try. Step pulse is set to 0. Last combination.
I forgot to uncheck that switch in home limits.
Pin 1 is correct, it's a solid state relay on the board? If I change that I'd have to hook up a relay for a 5vdc to control it.
It's rev ??? It doesn't say. I'm guessing 5.4.
I read that as I did the most of the Mach manual. I'm gonna guess I have a board problem.

You cannot control spindle Fwd, Rev, Mist & flood all using pin 1

So for instance pin 1 Fwd, pin 2 Rev, pin 3 Flood, pin4 mist, you must make the choice of what is available after the motor assignments

On ports n pins Motor Outputs you have spindle set to use pin 14 for step AND direction its got to have a different number for direction

If you cannot grasp what i am saying you will get nowhere, sorry

The Rev number is printed on the board btw

Ok, I'm sorry. You misunderstood me... I am not calling or using those to control anything, but I'll put in a number 2-17
I do totally grasp what you are saying.

I'll get you the rev number. But there is only one wireing diagram on the site, and pin 14 is pin 14 which from my reading on all three revs posted that would stand true to them all.

Thanks for your help.

After carefully inspecting the board there is no rev number. And no there does not have to be. It is not a REVISED board it is from the first run.

Mach will not allow me to change the step pulse or direction pulse on a single axis? Why is that?
If I change the spindle to 5 step and 0 direction it changes ALL motion axis too.
