Hi John,

Welcome to the forum.

If you post your question in the General section (new topic) it will receive more coverage and you should get help straight away.

Hi, my name is Jay and I have purchased a used 2x3 (2x4) DIY router CNC. I am from Huntsville AL and have a woodshop and make some stain glass as well. I would like to get my machine up and running to make templates, carve out some wood and I am sure I will find all sorts of uses once it is working. I am new at this, I am good at working on computers but G code and understanding the complexities of Mach3 are or rather seem to be very indepth. Withou learning G code and what the four thousand buttons in Mach 3 do I just want to carve a happy face in wood and progress to some more complex items as I pick up mach3.

The purchase was a shot in the dark when I bought it and for the most part I think I have it mostly setup correctly. I have listenend to the guy on the Mach3 video tutorial several times but it is not helping me to get my unit up and running...I am sorry if I have not searched the site for issues but in fact I do not know what I need to ask to help myself.
I did get some setup numbers and the machine will come alive, it jogs however, it does not respond to my limit switches and I do not see a red box outlining my table size, that is just what I see, other things are wrong I'm sure of it, so I thought maybe if some of you smart people could make a short 8 to 10 (or 20) step list of obvious things to check I will start to diagnose my machine. I can do screen shots if necessary.
Since I am very green at this please don't think I am missing my ham off my sandwich, I know my problem is what I don't know and I hope to rectify that with someones help.

My name is Gus - I live in Hervey Bay Australia. I am converting a small mill to CNC. I have a problem - the software is running on Vista. I downloaded the patch and the system operates as far as the parallel port test. After that I just get a demo screen - can't get to the operation system at all. Any ideas?

Hi all,

My name is Adrian and I am brand new to this forum and CNC. I became interested in CNC some time ago and proceeded to build my own CNC machine. I Have now placed an pre-loved desktop computer next to the machine and installed mach3. Thant is as for as I got as I have some problems with the software. I may place a message in the support forum to see if anyone can help me out.
