Thread: Boxford TCL 160
shows the location of the two homing sensors - the two salmon pink parts.
Would it be possible to retrofit them ?

I've been having problems with the Planet-CNC software so, seeing as I have a UC100 motion controller left over from another project, I thought I'd take the plunge and swap them over.
As I've been using the Boxford driver board, I made up a new loom, so that I needed to disturb the current wiring as little as possible.
Loaded the UC100 software, loaded the included demo of Mach3, wired up the newly purchased BoB and fired her up again.
And all that happens is all three steppers rattle and bang alarmingly. With the UC100 disconnected, there's no noise, so I don't think it's interference on the control lines.
Seems I need to do some digging in Mach3. If anyone has an XML file for Mach3 for use with the Boxford stepper electronics, it would be gratefully received.
Hello .I have just purchased to very same machine exactly like yours and it work very well.I have a Planet-CNC Mk3 board and hope to use this to connect to a pc with the planet software Could you help with wiring diagrams , plans or any info at all as i am an engineer and not very experienced at all with electronics. I don't mind purchasing whats needed but don't see the sense in scraping things that work so well. Please help thanks
