It’s done and did not blow a fuse yet stirling, lol

But no good results. The digitize light is ON in the diagnostic screen and when I connect the clip to the tool and click on the Auto Tool Zero button on the Mach3 screen the motor goes click…click…click but does not move and on the status line below I get the message “Auto zeroing… Probe ignore activated at call for probe”

Kolias - if I'm to help you I really need you to do what I ask and not what you fancy trying.

FORGET about running the macro for now. At NO point did I ask you to run the macro or press any buttons.

Are you connecting to pin15? are you remembering the 120R resistor? are you changing probe input in ports n pins from 8 to 15? is it set active low?

Go through the instructions again and please follow to the letter. Check and double check you have it EXACTLY.

Then touch your plate to the tool. Do not hit any buttons - do not run any macros - do not pass go - do not collect $200.

If it still doesn't work - please check the voltage between the tool and the plate and report back - it should be approx 4.8V

I thank you.

Sorry stirling, all is done as per your instructions.

Setting my voltmeter at 20VDC scale I get 0.65 between the tool bracket and the touch plate. I get Nothing between the tool chuck and the touch plate

OK - clearly SOMETHING is not correct - this SHOULD be dead simple.
Can you do a good clear photo capturing your WHOLE BOB showing the resistor and your wiring please?

Yes gime a few minutes but I dont think it will be clear because its a mesh with all wiring around

I can just make out a resistor connected at one end topin 15. What is the other end connected to?

The clip is connected to a black wire and pin GND next to the power in connections. The plate is connected to a red wire and pin 15. from the 5V pin I connected the 120 Ohms resistor and spliced the other end to the red wire. So the resistor one end is into 5V pin and the other end is spliced to red wire
