Oh BTW I would suggest you just test the drives with temporary wiring first before you go to the bother of doing a load of soldering.

I second the Hood for president Brett! When I was doing some research on the connectors of CN I/F I found some called them sub D 36, centronics mini D 36 & I also found them called HP 36. Seems some HP printers used this connector and I found printer cables on-line that are this sub D 36 on one end & 25 DB on the other,pretty cheap,$8.00 or so apiece. Could I get away with getting some of these printer cables, cutting off the DB25 and bringing out the wires for connection to BOB ? I was afraid that seeing how they are 25 on one end & 36 on the other (the end I need)maybe wires aren't connected to all 36 pins or maybe something is jumpered internally which would make them unusable for my needs. What do you guys think, worth taking a chance?

Going to try some pics, I had 4 attached to the previous post & it just would not happen. Any tips/suggestions on the best way to get them here?

Rick, make sure they arent to big.  The forum will only accept 6000kb per post.  Also, be sure they have a unique name.  You can only ost any file once with the same name.

There is a good chance on those cables that some of the wires you need will be missing and could well be internal jumpers.  If I couldnt get a pin-out/schmatic I would pass as long as you can get the connectors you need to make your own.

;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D

My guard dog is not what you need to worry about!

Well folks,
    Just thought I'd let you know I've been trying like heck to post some pics of my project with no luck. >:( I finally saw something in lower taskbar about an error 0X80010108 preventing photo or video from displaying? They display fine on my computer, just can't get them into a post. ???Googled the error code, said to do a syatem restore at the latest restore point.This is a win 7 box,about 15 months old & I've never done a system restore on this machine but started it anyway to see if it would fix the problem. Turns out the latest restore point was like 6:30 am this morning & said something about a windows update at that time. ???I don't know but maybe microsuck causing the problem?Whatever I did the system restore at that point,tried to get a pic into a post & same result as before,same error code.
    This had/has been a fun & productive sunday off work thanks to this forum,Hood & others.But time to prep for another workweek of drugdery now.I will be working on the rewire of the servo drives as time permits & will report back here on progress when there is some.Will also be trying to SHOW my progress if & when I can.
                 Thanks to all,    Rick

Rick,
 are you using the additional options button on the reply page to browse and attach the images?
If you are then just make sure they are of a unique name, in other words the forum only accepts a file attachment name once, so if you have previously tried and get a message to that effect just rename the file and try again, often adding something like a 1 or a z or whatever to the file name is enough.

Yes Hood,
    I'm really having a problem here with pics. I've tried the attach & brouse,renamed the file each time. Forum says I already sent the post but nothing is showing up here, not even the text. I don't seem to be getting the errorr code anymore, I did some more searching on that before work this morning & found it to be a known windows 7 bug when downloading pics & video from certain devices. Was directed to microsoft site to download & install "windows essentials" which is supposed to be the bug fix,which I did.I took the pics with my ole'lady's camera,(first time I ever used it),they look fine in my 'puter,maybe I need to take them over and try all over again after having installed the fix?

Ok your pics are quite large in file size so I have taken a screenshot of it and attached, clicking the thumbnail below should show the pic in a reasonable resolution.
