Estop won't release
« on: March 28, 2010, 11:38:34 AM »
Mach3 Mill will release the steppers when Estop is initiated but on Mach3 Lathe it won’t. The steppers stop but won’t release. I have to shutdown Lathe and start Mill the get the steppers to release. Soooo what little box is checked wrong or not? Ben

The steppers have power to them but not turning they are on hold. If I want to turn the feed handle by hand it won't turn.

Thanks Hood. I found an old XML that worked and now it's OK. The reason this took so long is my wife's dishwashing machine died. If it's not working I get to do the dishes sooo I spent 2 days taking it apart, all of it, and found a small dish chip stuck under the impeller stopping the main motor from turning. Luckily the motor was OK and I reassembled the whole mess and I'm not doing the dishes. Thanks again, Ben
