    I am new to cnc and I purchased a workbee 750 x 1000 cnc from bulkman beginning of last year. I built the machine without any problem, and decided I would follow the video's on bulkmans resources and run it with mach 3 software. I spent an age wiring all as instructed and down loaded Mach 3. I can navigate a computer but i am not really that confident and knowledgeable with this software.
    After many attempts and 3 NVM CNC controllers later( as I thought this was the problem) I still cannot get my drivers or spindle to work to the software.I did for about 10 minutes once but when I switched laptop off for the evening, next day nothing and back to nothing.
    I must have spent hundreds of hours searching the web and trying different ports and pins strategies. I have come to the conclusion i am really rubbish and need from someone who knows what they are doing to get it going. I have attached my wiring, wiring diagram I have followed and some of my pins and ports pages. I am using a aspire laptop.
    If anybody has the patience to navigate me through my incompetence it would be massively appreciated.I just don't know what I am doing wrong.
