Thanks again Hood'ster
I ran it up too 1000 and it homes just fine.
Kinda weird as even a super slow Jog worked fine before.
Oh well.
As long as it works !!

Good you are sorted Yoda

Brett, I think your ticking when starting the computer is windows  querying the parallel port. If your breakout has the charge pump feature you should enable it and that should stop any twitching as the drives wont get any pulses at all unless there is a steady stream at a certain frequency.

Not being lucky enough to have a breakout board I just fire the two controllers up after
Windows and Mach are running.

Yes, I have a charge pump, I think it is flaky though. ??? I got a new seprate pump thursday. I will try that today. It's not real bad, once I open Mach and hit reset, it quits. I will let you know how it does.

What is the dif. between index debounce, and debounce? ???


Thanks,
Brett
;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D

 The Index debounce would be, I presume, for the Index Pulse, ie the spindle speed .
