    I wasnt sure what to set the speed to the spindle or the motor, it looks like 3-1 gearing on the belt or something like that. So i just set it to 2000..


    Besides which how would i tell what speed it was doing :lol:

    you may find it cheaper, or cheaper postage if you search.

    sounds like you're almost there, have you done the home switches yet, and does it home correctly. If so then it's soft limits next.

    I had done it but it was untidy so as i speak im tidying it up, should only take 15 mins or so then as you say its soft limits, I believe that you can set things up so that the axis hit limits and back off to home...
