    So such a long time i have had to play with the lathe.

    The new psu works brilliantly, still need to test the new board for control but the current one works very well, all spot on, no cutouts!

    BUT...

    I have been thinking about selling this project on.. I'm finding more of a need for a CNC Mill/Router around A3 sized bed if poss!

    You just need to change the direction for the axis in stepconf (check the "invert" box next to the direction pin on the parallel port setup page).
