    Terry did you get the PC with machine or have you installed Mach on another PC.?

    If it was working when bought it then just moving shouldn't hurt the BOB. Only takes one wrong setting in Mach3 and nothing will work. Esp when using the Parallel port which this BOB clearly is using unless plugged into another External motion control board.?

    At least it means it has power to it
    It takes all sorts to make a world, I am just glad I am not one of them.

    If you will not be swayed by logic or experience simply pick the idea you
    like best, but ask yourself why you sought advice in the first place and,
    for a simple life, perhaps consider not doing so in future

    hi, the PC came with the machine. as did all the cables etc.

  7. #17 the replacement board came.I wired it up using some pictures I took when I collected the machine. Nothing works. There is power to the board.power to the motor drivers but no movement at all.I have played around a bit with the pins but nothing. E stop is set. So is there anyone out there who can guild me step by step on how to get this machine working.I am useless at electrical things.Thanks michael

    Playing about with anything won't work.

    CNC's work by logic , you have to do the same.

    First off tell us what computer and OS you are using. What version of Mach3 and we will take it from there.

    Terry I'll PM you mu number ring me and I'll get you working in no time provided nothing broken. 99% sure this will be setup issue or broken/disconnected wire on the E-stop side.
