Spindle speed measuring
« on: May 02, 2006, 02:40:31 AM »
How to make to see my spindle speed on Mach? What type of pulse do I have to connect on LPT input pin? Any schematic available?
Btw, thanks Barker806 for answering on my first post here, It had helped me.

I have seen a prox used to do this in the past... It seemed to me to be the best way because it can be covered in oil and still work great :)

Ups....what is a "prox"? English is not my first language (Serbian is!) and I don't know what the "prox" is mean?
Do you mean Proxxon spindle?
