Just checking set up - first timer
« on: September 14, 2010, 11:42:34 AM »
I am right on the verge of connecting my driver boards, BoB, limits, inputs and outputs motors etc, etc
Now most of you older hands might be able to remember what it was like - All that hard earned money sat on a desk in front of you
With the chance you could see it all go up in smoke??? that very first time
So I thought I would ask the stupid questions now before I make that fatal assumption (I think I know what I'm doing).
This might seem very long winded, stick with me, please
PS Is there anyone in the southwest (UK) doing similar??
