You may need to make sure it is capable of 5v rather than the normal 3.3v nowadays. That will depend on the breakout though as it may buffer lower voltage signals.

well, i bought this?as it sain 64 bit system, others didn't.
when you say voltage.... I am to connect the bob to the 36 volt outlet on my power supply as the instructions?


while I am on, I did NEED a filtered socket? I though for the extra few bucks, it was worth it for the tails, now did I NOT owant a filtered one?

while on again,
the manual wheel twirley doofers, do they need to ne a certain weight like a car engine front dampner, as i bought these

still have to drill them to 8mm though, do i simply need to move the axis's to home the machine.

while on again, I must tell you of my balls up, have the motors fitted into cans with amphenol connectors, great and all, opened the silvered bullet non solder connectors from the old mpotors, with a large needle, saving myself 60 pounds in new 20mm by 2mm bullets -  that all went great, put them all back together with nice just short enough wireing, then realised
I just bought these

as I need 8mm from the original 1/4'', and you can't fit them when the housings are on........
grrrrrrr

happy days,

Are you thinking of using a 64bit OS?

Well you will not be able to use Mach if using the parallel port, it only works with a 32bit OS.
If you want to use a 64bit OS then you will need to use an external motion controllers such as those from CS-Lab or SmoothStepper or DSPMC OR Kflop etc
