Hey Hood, leave Tweakie alone as he had the same spelling teacher that I had.  :)

BTW Tweakie , maybe "in" instead of "if" .  :D

Tweakie, I already knew that, but thanks for the heads up.

Yes Robert, overlook Hood's modesty.  He has been at this for a long time......... a very long time.......... he is wise like father time for a good reason........ they were born in the same year.  ;D  I'd love to have a nickle for every bit of good solid advice Hood has given. 

Rich and Tweakie are fine ones too.  In fact we have a very good group period and your part of that so pat yourself on the back too.  :)

I spell checked this twice too BTW and it said it was good all both times........  :P

Sounds like a good crew.

Hood, I changed the pins and; I double check the Plasma window and all works fine.  I changed the pin #'s to match and: The L arrow moves the X to the the R, the R to the L. The up axis moves down and visa versa.  The A does not move. I also enabled the #2 port and changed the address to the same as plasma.

Is there a check to turn the slave on?

I tried to reverse the numbers, thinking that would move them in the opposite and nothing moved.

Don't know where to go next.

I am not an expert at this because I have never had occasion to actually do it but…

In Motor Tuning make the settings exactly the same for both the Y and A axes and save the settings for each.
In General Config uncheck the A-Axis so it makes the A axis Linear.
In Slave Axis select Y to A then restart Mach3.

You should now have both these axes slaved.

To change the direction an axis moves you change the active state of the Dir pin for that axis (Ports and Pins, Motor Setup page)

we're getting there.

The 3 axis and the A are working......Yea.

The only thing is, when I run my plasma, The motors have a good solid sound.  When I run the Mill they have a weaker/whiney sound.

I will run a test later to make sure I got it.

Is there any problem with the sound?

Think you have different motor tuning values for each profile, if its the same machine then I would expect each to be the same between profiles.
