OK so  we know Mach is OK, your port is OK, your cable is OK so now check on the output side of the C10 and that will show whether the signals are passing through it. If they are not then double and tripple check it is wired correctly and if still not getting them then the C10 looks suspect.

When I checked on the cable pins, I can get to the 3 and 25, but with the cable hooked up, I can get to the 3, but where do I get to the 25 pin?

From the common connector beside the pins connector.

From here I read between 0 and .5v dc, with only the power from the printer cord... With everything on, I get 4.75v dc, going in either direction...

Well either your BOB is bad or your wiring is bad. If you still cant get it after checking the wiring your best bet is to contact Arturo and see what he suggests as a test.

Success!!! All motors are running, and dialed in! A couple of pins on the BOB was the culprit!
