    Yes but it would seem to be easier to change from 50 holes to 1 than to design circuit, buy parts, assemble board, program board.

  2. 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...

    I liked the look of it, its fit for purpose and the price is not bad, although im not sure if i will end up buying another sensor, it will be interesting to see what that chip is on the back.

    As always im thinking you are correct, maybe ill just mount another sensor on the spindle and be done with that, mind you i couldnt find anything suitable on fleabay

    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.

  5. yes there are...

    Typically (courtesy DIYCNC)
    1 Charge pump signal Enable
    2 X Direction X Axis
    3 X Step X Axis
    4 Y Direction Y Axis
    5 Y Step Y Axis
    6 Z Direction Z Axis
    7 Z Step Z Axis
    8 A Direction A Axis
    9 A Step A Axis
    10 Input 1 Input pin
    11 Input 2 Input pin
    12 Input 3 Input pin
    13 Input 4 Input pin
    14 Output signal Output pin
    15 Input 5 Input pin
    16 Spindle pulse Output pin
    17 Relay 1 Output pin
    18-25 Ground GND

    Hmmmm.... childs putty will do nicely methinks

  7. George,
    I really wonder sometimes if you say things just to wind people up. or did you miss out on potato guns in your childhood? now go calculate the force delivered in your eye from a pea-sized lump of putty due to the tangential velocity at 3000 rpm

    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?
