Ok my printer port is def only putting out 3.3V on the Dir pins while jogging. So safe to assume I need that C10 board wouldnt you say?

I can't say for sure that it'll fix the issue. The drive has no manual that specifies the minimum voltage?

I understand Gerry, man I really appreciate all your help, its really great having people such as yourself willing to offer your expertise on this stuff!
You have been a huge help.
I went ahead and ordered the board regardless, I just never have liked the cheapo BOB that came with my kit. Its always seemed like junk to me so whether or not its the only problem its going to be nice to have a better bob anyway.

Thank you!!
