Spindle control
« on: November 01, 2010, 10:21:31 PM »
I am having a problem getting spindle control to work.
I am using pin 14 on LPT 1 mapped to Output 1 and have M03 and M04 set to Output 1.
This is on a Bridgeport BOSS 8 so spindle control enables the spindle or stops the spindle.
No mater what I do the spindle is enabled as long as the computer is powered up.
If I shut the computer down the spindle stops. LPT 1 pin 14 is connected to the spindle enable pin that works under the AHHA control system.
I am at a loss as to what to do next.

I presume you have tried Output#1 active low checked / active low unchecked to see if this cures it ? (also check that no other outputs are mapped to pin 14).

I have some other problems also so I think I will quit trying to convert from the AHHA system and do a complete rewire using a BOB.
