    Hi. Any luck with this?
    I have a working Boxford 125 with the toolchanger running on linuxCNC (pathpilot). I can post the relevant configs if you are intrested?
    I had to rewrite the toolchanger driver to get it working on the turret.

    Here is the relevant code for the Toolchanger:
    I have button "Index Turret" from the panel connected to gpio.024 for controlling the indexing if it looses its position
    You need to build the toolchanger.comp for your linuxcnc system to get it working.
    loadrt toolchanger
    addf toolchanger servo-thread
    addf and2.0 servo-thread
    net tool-change iocontrol.0.tool-change => toolchanger.toolchange
    net tool-changed iocontrol.0.tool-changed <= toolchanger.toolchanged
    net tool-number iocontrol.0.tool-prep-number => toolchanger.toolnumber
    net tool-oldnumber iocontrol.0.tool-number => toolchanger.currenttoolnumber
    net apos-cmd toolchanger.position-cmd => hm2_5i25.0.stepgen.01.position-cmd
    net apos-fb hm2_5i25.0.stepgen.01.position-fb => toolchanger.position-fb
    net ahomed axis.3.homed => toolchanger.ishomed
    net tool-prepare-loopback iocontrol.0.tool-prepare => iocontrol.0.tool-prepared
    net index-turret-raw debounce.0.0.in <= hm2_5i25.0.gpio.024.in_not 
    net index-turret toolchanger.jog-forward <= debounce.0.0.out
    setp toolchanger.jog-move 2.0

    Hi dnh2000, sorry for late response (life).
    Can I ask you for BIG favour?
    Can you please write me step by step guide how to make it run (with LTP port)?
    No matter what I do, I still have some errors:
    pin “stepgen.3.position-cmd” does not exist
    pin “stepgen.3.homed” does not exist
    I’m really not programmer :(
    I’m willing to compensate you somehow...paypal, or give you my first born child :D
