Help

My K2 2514 mill is as follows:

3 - axis X,Y,Z
X - Kelig K23H286 425 oz-in
Y - same
Z - Kelig K23H276 282 oz-in
All 3 wired Bipolar (parallel)
Lead screw on all 3 axis 10 TPI
Using Kelig KL5042 Drivers on each motor
MACH3 set to 25000 kernel speed

I have set the micro-stepping to 1/8 which means
1600 turns/rev
In MACH3 - Motor Tuning - I have set the steps per
to 16000

Problem is when I send a command to travel 1" in
any direction, it only moves .2"

Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like you have metric and imperial modes mixed up somewhere.

When I reset my micro steps i had to reset my StepPerMinute setting in the setup page. I'm guessing this is your problem.

Thank you both for your attempts to help -

But it was the dumbass operators fault - me.

It appears that the DIP switch for the micro steps is opposite
logic - up is off - down is on.

All is well now.
