Why is it when hacking a cable up and metering to find out which wires belong to which pins it is always the last ones out of all that are the ones you need ;D

Ok there is definitely something weird with it as I tested here and with the Mach2 xml it was fine but the Mach3 one it was as you said.
What I would suggest is you set up a new xml from scratch and see if that helps, if it doesnt then I will investigate a bit more and see if I can find the issue but as its well past midnight here it will be tomorrow evening before I can.

Thanks.

It's 8pm here now so it will probably go to tomorrow eve here too.

The shop is about 100' from the house, it's -8 deg C with about 60cm of snow on the ground, going to take the evening off.   ;)

Just reporting in.  I have been working on the mechanicals of the table and have put the MACH config problem on the back burner for now.
I will be back on configuring MACH3 shortly.
It looks like this so far:

Latest update. I finished up the mechanicals and created a new profile in MACH3 this past weekend and all is good. Homing and limits working too. Relieved.

Thanks HOOD for your help!
