    Hi Irving,

    Very useful. I think anybody new to this should really read up on the subject. Most I think are like me and got it right more through luck than judgement which is stupid for such a fundamental part of the system.

    Thanks for the link!
    Nothing is foolproof......to a sufficiently talented fool!

    Worth reading to get a better understanding of steppers but things have advanced along way with digital stepper drives so not all is relavant to today drives.
