Hey Norm, that xml looks a lot better.  It works as it should it here.  When you say you lost the x axis, I'm assuming the x axis does not move at all?  Does the DRO for the x axis change?

HI Brett,
The Tool does not move, however the DRO does show the x-axis moving.
Thanks again,
Norm

Swap pin assignment in Mach for X and Z and see if the Z stops working and X starts (not physical X and Z but Machs X and Z)

Hi Hood,
I swapped pin assignments.  when I jog the x axis Z moves, when I jog the z axis nothing moves.  The DRO responds in both Axis.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks again,
Norm

Ok sounds like a problem with the parallel port I would say.
