    Are the attached images correct? I'm trying to get the probe to work and it either A) spins the motor when the tool hits it or B) does squat. So I had a look in diag and noticed this while I was muckin about.

    When the probe touches, the digitise input is on, so that's fine. The only thing I don't like in that screenshot is their spelling of digitise!
    The fact you get different results each time the tool touches implies you might have a problem with interference. How is the probe connected and are you using shielded cable?

    Also, U notice you have the kernel frequency set to 35kHz. Are you sure it needs to be that high, as Mach3 is likely to be more stable if you run it on 25kHz. I doubt that's causing any problems with the probe.

    35KHz is manufacturers specs but hey it's a strange machine ;)
    The probe is connected to a connection (logical place for it) on the back of the controller box, as for the spelling, if you look at Mach3 it's got spelling errors everywhere

    Carl,
    You are using the US screen for Mach,
    You need to OZ screen.

    ermm I'm not Australian, and the bulk of the feaures I'd never use, I don't drink so XXXX is out, I hate the beach so surfing and sharks is out, I hate spiders and snakes so they're out too, I live in suburbia so koalas are out, everyone I know is also not Australian so ocker is out, I use a kettle so that makes billy redundant, I can't chunder (seriously) so that's out, about the only one that may come in handy is kangaroo coz this things had me bouncing off the walls of late

    Why isn't there a Bruce ?? There has to be a Bruce if it's the Australian version, think it's compulsory.

    OK you are right, Bruce it is instead of digitise.
