take the toolplate off and there should be a cover, underneath it is the ratchet/pawl.

Hallo
Please help.
I built an auto rotary tool changer with a stepper motor. It doesn't have any solinoids. I use my B axis for my toolpost.
My only problem is that I don't know how to tell Mach 3 that this has to be my toolpost axis. I want it to be a 6 or 12 station tarret and I don't know how to configure my settings in Mach 3 to let my toolpost operate.

Please let me know or if you have settings for me?
Thanks

My general logic configuration screen is different from yours, it doesn't have Rot 360 rollover.

What must I do?

Thanks

Because you have said General Logic rather than General Config I am thinking you must be using Mach2. You will really need to change to Mach3 I think.

Hi Hood
Yes nearly there I am tidying wiring and trying to install it all in an old PC tower box.

I have also got to sort out stepper drives into tower as well

Then I will be able to test it out using coolant pump control

Looking forward to getting to next stage of configuring the tool positions

Hi,

The program settings you gave me was done in notepad format and saved on my C drive as well as underneath the folders Macros, Mach3 Turn. BUT it doesn't want to open when I'm in VScript.
How can I save these settings otherwise?

Please help
