WHEN TUNING TO MOTORS, THERE IS TWO SMALL BOXES TO THE RIGHT.  ONE SAYS STEP PULSE 1-5 US, THE OTHER SAYS DIRECTION 0-2. WHAT ARE THEY FOR? AND WHAT HAPPENS IF THE ARE MODIFIED?

One is for pulse length , from 1 to 5 micro second

This will depend on your electronic connected to the parallel port ,  some breaker boards need longer pulse than other, if your system is working with this setup, don't change anything, for me, I had to increase pulse duration because I was loosing step.

The step direction is same thing, this is the pulse length in micro second, if you use kind of slow electronic, they will need a longer pulse to activate.

ostie01,
You made a helpfull repsonse to a question....and suggested .....that inivator use lower case.
Nobody is going to be told to "kiss off" under my watch. You deserve more than that for a reply.
Most would take it as an insult or personal attack which is not tolerated on this site at all.

Jeff, Inivator made a reply to your post. He was NOT thanking you for your support. Rich (moderator) edited his post, and kindly told him to take his bad attitude elsewhere. Good job, Rich.

Thanks for the reply Sam.

English is not my primary language so sometime I have trouble understanding some English expressions.

Thanks to clarify.

Can I just add for anyone who's wondering, that uppercase is regarded as SHOUTING and AGGRESSIVE on forums.

Jeff was quite right to respectfully ask for lower case. Good on you Jeff.

Back to the original question my machine was running ok for awhile then it started to lose steps in the X axis. my settings for the step pulse and direction are both 0. should i change them? if i do change them do i do it step pulse 1 and dir 0. or do you raise them equal? hope this sounds right. i have been searching the forum looking for answers. this string is the first one to actually answer what they are.
Safe machining everyone

Back to the original question

Which is 4 years old BTW  ;)

As your machine WAS running ok for a while, this would not be the first thing I'd be looking at. That said, these values should only need to be changed if the specs of your drivers or BOB demands it. That of course means you need the specs from your manuals.
