Need help wiring a Chinese BOB and simple DC spindle.
« on: August 13, 2016, 10:36:18 AM »
Am using a Chinese Bob shown here-

I can find all kinds of instruction for wiring a spindle with an inverter, but I am using a simple DC spindle, shown here-

It came with it's own speed control board, but it gives no indication of speed, so would like to control it thru mach 3 if possible.

Anyone done this and can tell me how or provide a wiring diagram?

Thanx, Alan

OK, I have it working but not right.

When Mach 3 thinks the motor is on, it is off and vice versa.

Very strange.
