Hi Chefrc,

Welcome to the forum.

You need to post your question as a new topic in the general section to get the optimum coverage and replys.

It would help if you attach your <profile>.xml file (typically Mach3Mill.xml) to your new post. Copy the .xml file from the Mach3 folder, rename it to chefrc.xml then use the Reply / Additional Options tabs to attach the file.

Hi all,

I am new to this forum. I use a converted Emco 140 for the production of some small parts.
There are some minor problems and I hope to find the solution here.

Hello all.  I'm new to this site (and new to Mach 3).  My background is in drafting.  I've been interested in machining for quite a while now.  Due to the slowdown in Oil and Gas I figured I'd try my hand at machining and engraving.  So, I recently purchased a 6040z from China.  The youtube videos look so much easier than what I'm experiencing.  I'm glad to find out about this forum and feel relieved to see that there are many hobbyist like myself who need a little help to get started.  I'm sure I'll need more than I can give in the short run but hope to become a resource over time for people like myself.

Hi, Home hobbiest here.  A couple of years ago I built a set up off a Grizzly mill using Xylotex stuff.  Set up Mach3 & Dolphin.  XP PC - Parallel.  Anyway, I got into limit switch problems and pretty much abandoned it.  Now thinking of a restart, but not very electrical.  Is there a mostly off the shelf four axis set up where I could re-wire my steppers, add limit switches, re-Install and go?  I have a parallel PC, but can deal with the PC side mostly.  A brand, page, short list of solid stuff would be quite helpful.  Thanks!

Hi Guys, welcome to the forum. You really need to post questions as a New Topic in the General Mach Discussion section (unless another section is more appropriate - but please don't make multiple posts on the same subject) - it will get more response as this section is only for introductions.

@Heyhoss - Holding Torque is set by the motor controller (often dip switches) not Mach.

@Cquinn - Each supplier will tell you that their stuff is the best / easiest to use etc.
Just my opinion but I think that the Gecko products take a lot to beat and their information / product support is second to none. Perhaps take a brows through their site  and see what you think  http://www.geckodrive.com/
