Hi Guys,

Welcome to the forum. There is a wealth of knowledge and experience here, if you post any questions you may have in the relevant sections I am sure they will be swiftly answered. In addition don't forget to post pictures of your projects or things you make - we all love to see pictures.  :)

I don't see any of the other post I made nor did I get any resolution to my problem,  I have went through videos, manual and any of the advice I could find on the subject on you forum, I new to cnc, and have been able to do something with my machine, but knowing that its not correct bothers me, I want the machine to work the way its suppose to.   My biggest problem has been setting the home limits on my machine, when i go to the diagnostic page and press the home switches nothing happens, and there are no instructions as to how to make them turn on.  So today I'm at wits end and will probably do a reinstallation of Mach3 to see if the home lights come on at all.  I've gone over everything else at least twice. could use a little knowledge from someone.

New here and new to all this CNC stuff but learning fast. Been in the electrical business all my life it seems, so the controls for the machine has not been too
bad. But all the little things you machine shop guys take for granted is taking me a little bit to pick up. But this site has helped a lot. So if I ask some dumb azz questions
bare with me please.

Hello,
My name is Cliff I live in Chesterton Indiana - about 8 miles from Lake Michigan. I hace an old CNC ( Digitool ) machine. Recently my old 486 computer dies that ran this machine. So we up graded to a dell and installed mach 3. Now I am only smart enough to get into trouble when it comes to computers, and now I am in trouble. Does anyone live near me that I could talk to by phone or in person - that knows anything about this stuff. My email address is calibratedsurface@frontier.com  - I dont have much hair left to pull out.

Hello, my name is Cliff. I am looking to talk to someone about this mach3 and my very old digitool cnc machine. I know enough about computers to get into trouble. Well I am in trouble. I live in NW Indiana. My old 486 died - had to up grade. Prior to this the machine ran great - using bobcad software.

Hi
My name is Quentin, total newbie to cnc an got a small 6040z table running ventric 2D cut and photocarve with Mach3, or I will be when I have set everything up. Starting with a small absic table until I have the know how to upgrade. done all my drawings, g code and set up just getting ready for first run. No doubt I will need some words of wisdom to perfect my processes and look forward to joining the cnc community.
