Yes wont harm testing them all. What that is showing is your Amp is fine and it is the Bandit control that is making the axis run away.
What you really need to do now is try and get encoders fitted then you can progress on to hooking things up to your new controller (Kflop/Kanalog/Mach)

I wired it up differently and I have multi directional control from one side to the other now plus it will stop when i turn the knob to the middle with a little creep. Is this correct and I had it wired up wrong before?

Not really a right or wrong way, the test was simply to see whether the amps were working as they should or not and it seems they are fine :)

Yea I was able to hook it up one way and get CW rotation the reverse the polarities and get CCW on all 3.

Now I'm sort of stumped. I have 8 shielded wires going into the old control consisting of many more smaller wires inside there. I'm slowly labeling them all and removing them. I need to figure out what wires are going where and then maybe I'll understand it better.

That will be all the I/O for things such as enables, coolant, limits etc.

Oh good. Can u help me understand this a little better. I don't really know what goes to what. I realize where the encoders go other than that I am not sure where anything else goes. Is it possible to wire in my tool changer also? I am having trouble understanding JP6 and JP11.

Dont know anything about the Kanalog and not really going to study it in detail as I will be unlikely to ever use one I am afraid.
I can say however that JP6 says its analogue inputs and in Mach they would be used for things such as Feed Rate Override pots, Spindle Override pot etc in conjunction with a macropump or a Brain.
JP11 is the analogue outs and that is where your -10 +10 signals to your Amps connect to.
Tool changers and other I/O would have to be connected to the other locations (JP8, 13 and 15)

Cool I understand more than I did b4. So now I'll hook up my signal wires and order my encoders today.

So are my - & + 10V signal wires are controlled through a total of 2 wires per axis?

Yes that is correct.
