Where should I connect the blue wire to on a TB6560 BOB?

Hood--- Thanks
Any spare input you have? They all look the same to me except the obvious power supply and stepper motor wires, as I have said before I am no electonics expert only very basic wiring.

Do you have a manual as I am not familiar with that board.

Ok look at the eBay auction, if thats the same one you have (there are many variations coming out of China) then you will see lower left corner it says 4 Inputs.
If you scroll further down you will see a representation of E-Stop etc connecting to these inputs. It tells you there which pin on the connector corresponds to the parallel port pin so for example pin 1 on the connector on the board connects to pin 10 in Mach, pin 2 to 11 etc. If you have a spare pin then you want to connect it into that then tell Mach which pin you have connected the index to.

More thanks, its getting clearer by the explanation off you, soon I will be screwcutting once I have the ball screws fitted and operational.

No probs.
Threading on a cnc lathe is just so easy. I do a lot of threads and even if I am doing something on the manual lathe if there is a thread to be done I will pop it in the CNC and thread. I would never even consider doing a thread on the manual lathes nowadays.

Hi Hood
Thought it was too simple.
Exactly where do you get the 5 volt supply from as there are no obvious connections for it on the BOB TB 6560?
Will I have to get a seperate power supply if so what spec?
I have been given some 200 ohm resisters will two in series be OK as you specify 220ohms?
