Hello,

I have a question before i buy.

One of the key things I would like to have is the "Auto Tool zero"

I see you need two plates ( one movable plate  and a second fixed plate )

My problem is I only have 1 input on my board available. ( since I am using a smooth ethernet stepper, I am hesitant to connect a second board, I could not find anything on internet where people have done this)

so my question is can I connect these two plates in parralel ?

Thanks

Yes, the two plates are both connected to the same input (Probe Input in Mach3).

Hi Gerry,

I bought from you 2010 screenset, it is ok, but I have a problem: I use tangential control function and can not turn on, on your screenset. I have to upload a different screenset, so I could access the settings menu, ALT-6, in order to activate tangential control button. I can do this in the 2010 screenset ?
Thank you.

Sorry, there's no Tangential On/Off button.
Did you buy this strictly to run a tangential machine? If so, send me an email and I'll refund the purchase price.

2010 screenset is excellent and I would not ask for money back especially after long use with no problem.
No, I use them not only for tangential control. I want to know if there is any possibility to activate tangential control, without being forced to change screeenset. Maybe a combination of buttons or other metod.
Thanks.

As far as I know, you would need to add a button and maybe  LED to the screenset.

Hello Gerry,

I bought the screen set and I put the resolution of my monitor to 1024x768 I also put the
window task bar to auto hide.

My problem is that when i turn on the "Diagnostic" screen it seeems to cut of the right side of that windo ( I mean I do not see the red "X" at the top to close the windos

Any Idea why this is so ?

Thanks

Yes, it's the way Mach opens the "TAB" screen by default.
Here's what you do.

Hit the TAB key, to open the Diagnostics screen.
Hit the TAB key to close it.
Hit the TAB key again to open it, and then drag the left edge to the proper position.
Hit TAB to close it.

Close and restart Mach3, and it should stay in the correct location.

This info is in the manual, btw.

Gerry,  I had to re-load my whole computer again and cannot get the zero to Laser to work.  I push the button and nothing happens.  M8 does turn on the laser but when I go to zero to laser nothing occurs.   Running 3.043.066 Mach.
 Thanks, Bryan
