Thread: The illusive Boxford 260vmc
well £24 delivered isnt bad...
blanking out 49 holes might not be as easy as you think, you might need to provide an alternate sensor. Also if you do blank the holes you'd prevent using it for closed loop speed control later...
This may sound stupid, but im just wiring up the drivers to the BOB and i was wondering if there were default ports used for axis, IE X=pin??? y=pin??? etc.. I do like to keep things default, as it makes things less complicated If I get problems.
yes there are...

Hey Rick,can you pop some putty in two holes of those holes when you get the machine up and running....if the putty flies out I will buy Irving 2 pints a day for the next 12 months.
Push it in the holes and cut off the excess both sides of the holes.
Hey Irving, thanks for the pinouts, thats made life a little simpler, i notice that there is only 1 pin for spindle output pulse, on my board from cncdoctor there are two,one terminal labled "Pulse" and one "RTN"...
Also Ive been looking for a sensor for this display i found on fleabay with no luck, do you have any suggestions?
