Hi, Bill

It was late, Sorry for the error's, I'll Blame it on my Calculator.

But your other comments,

"these numbers show without rounding as the pulses increase"

Mach Doesn't just put up values It thinks you'd like See,  Expand your DRO to show 00000.00000000000000000000 Accaurcy and look at it.

"doing big resolution with microstepping is kind of phony anyway,but it makes the DRO look good. big solid resolution is done with gearing".

I've herd some comment's on Micro-Stepping from some, There may be slight position error's between full steps, But after moving millions and millions of

moves, You make it sound like you'll never get even close to your Home Position, My rotary table is geared and Micro-Stepping, Returners to 0.0

Please think about it.

Thanks, Chip

Thanks for the pics, Rich, and yes, I'll take the bracket (aluminum?) let me know an email to contact you at, and I'll take care of that for you. Thanks again- :)

Chip, the more I'm thinking about doing this, the more I think I should just do it the right way, the first time and I think the sherline is the way to go. It's funny that you posted that ebay screen shot, I have that bookmarked as of this morning-  ;D
Just because I'm a Global Moderator, don't assume that I know anything !
