Hi I am a retired 67 year old and enjoy working with my hands, I carve stick heads and knock up simple projects like bird and bug boxes amongst other things. I have also been riding motorcycles since I was 16, I have been into BSA;s but have owned many different british bikes over the years, at present I have 3 BSA;s a 2003 Triumph T100 as well as a 125 chinese vespa LX lookalike. I have just purchased a 6040 CNC 4 axis milling machine hopefully to run on Mach 3. at present the Y and the z axis go in the wrong direction and the spindle motor will not run on the test on the setup instructions. I am going to have another go later but any help would be appreciated. I live near Malmesbury in Wiltshire UK and it would be great if anyone living nearby with Mach 3 experience could help me as I am not brilliant understanding computor set up instructions but I am ok once shown

I was noticing that as of this writing we have 2795 members and have only heard from a couple of hundred and an even smaller number of regular posters.

So if you are new around here please post and introduce your self.  You could give a little on your background, hobbies , how you ended up here, whatever!

This is a site to help with mach. There is a great talent pool here already but this is a community driven site and we would love to hear from the silent masses ;)

So stand up and say hi!!

Thanks,

Chad

Hi, my name is Ted.  I'm new to CNC and I'm building my first CNC machine.  I live in Florida and it's very hot here right now.  I know that this is to introduce myself but I'm having a very hard time with my build.  The problem is getting the motors to turn. Everything I have read it seems that I have it all configured correctly but I must be missing something. I would be very grateful for any help. Also when I run the driver test two things happen. One it says it pulsing too fast. The second thing is when the test takes over it shuts off my PC, I'm running Windows XP.

Hi Ted, welcome to the forum.

There are far too many reasons for the problems you are experiencing to list them all but this is just my thoughts...

The 'pulsing too fast' can be caused by something on the PC running in the background such as USB hub, printer driver, memory stick etc.
Ideally the PC running Mach3 should be a 'dedicated PC' with no other software (other than Mach3 related) installed.

The shutdown could be related to your graphics card.

Perhaps check that your PC meets the minimum requirements mentioned here; http://www.machsupport.com/software/mach3/

Hi,
My name is Mike and I am a retired machinist.  I have been working with CNC since 97'.  Since retiring I wanted to build a CNC router because I love woodworking and wanted to do some cnc woodworking. I am eager to learn all the "tricks" of Mach3 and I am willing to take lots of advice in these forums.  Looking forward to many new things.
