So sorry, I thought you were the same Hood that has the DIY CNC website. No wonder we have been miscommunicating. I took it for granted that your examples were in the book and you were aware of my set-up. Now it makes sense.

Ah ok that clears up a few of the weird answers you were giving ;D

Will go and look at your xml and see if I can find an issue.

Your xml looks fine an as you have confirmed that the drive is getting at least the Dir signals it means your wiring is good at least to the BOB  so that really only leaves the drives wiring and setup of its dip switches. Are they the same now as in the pics you posted earlier?

LOL, you have a great sense of humor! Everything is set the same as the pictures. I have changed nothing. The person who has the site is named Patrick Hood Daniel so assumed you were one in the same. My bad.........

Nope he is from the USA I am Scotland, see flag and location to the left :)

Ok it all seems fine in the pics although I cant be sure about the wiring where are you taking the red wires from in the attached pic? Do you have the jumper set on the C10 for common  to be 5v?

Possible prob ?
The jumper on the bob should be for 5v com., not ground.  (?) According to the driver schematic. (?)
There is no connection to the 2-9 pin commons at the bob. Should be 5v. (?)
Just guessing.

Now Russ, is it a case of great minds think alike or Fools seldom differ, think in my case it would be the latter ;)

I finally got it to move! Under ports/pins/port setup, i checked sherline 1/2 pulse mode and now everything moves as its supposed to. Finally, but the limit keeps tripping from stray voltage, I think. I will have to run them separate from the power wires. Thanks Hood!!!
