Take it the wife doesnt come near the computer LOL

6 wires are more like it, A+ A- B+ B- 5V 0V
All you need to do now is work out which is the 5v and which is the 0v :D

Another option you could have if you blow it up trying to discover the correct 5V wire is to hack away the crap and fit a rotary encoder to it, should be able to get one cheap enough on eBay.

 :D ;D Hood, Brett, and everyone else who reads this forum,
I feel much better now. ;D Got the X and Y working really good now. :D

Had to change ports and pins to 3-2 for X , and 5-4 for Y. After tuning I got both X and Y to move
at 150 ipm, which I think is great for running these 100v  brushed servos on only 54 volts. ;D
The Y was running in the wrong direction , so just un checked dir in ports and pins. Now its all good.
Will have to check travel with gage blocks yet. These servos are so quite , you hardly hear them run.
I'll take servos over steppers any day.

Haven't done the Z axis yet. been taking them apart and removing the tach commutator and brushes and replacing all
the cables.

Hood, no, the wife don't touch my computer, and I don't touch hers. I only have one on line,VISTA, >:( AND it does SUCK. and 3 more in the shop,
plus 2 spares. plus some extra parts.

Thanks to you guys and this forum for all your help,  but , we'r not done yet.
And , I don't care what your favorite color is. :D

Thanks
Ed V.

You think the gas prices are high in the USA, just think yourself lucky, we are nearly $11 for a gallon :(
