    I got some time and made up the terminal / drag chain plate and guard.
    It is held in place with 2 - Black 90s
    Has two 12 screw terminals and 16mm stand offs where used for mounting the guard :)

    O.K! So where do you keep finding this "time"?? :jawdrop:
    Have you got a secret place you keep it?? :D
    With the amount of stuff you do, you have no right to find any spare time, as far as I'm concerned. :cool:
    Looks good though, as usual. :thumbsup:

    Well all wired up, but and there always seems to be one :)
    I can't seem to get mach3 setup using the pinter port on my rebuilt rack sever I had planed on using/mounting in the base of my OX
    image.jpg
    It really has me :banghead:
    With my last setup I used a PCI card and things went a lot smoother :mad:

    And it's alive!
    Lol always the little things :oops:
    Here I sit telling all about proper grounding and that was my issue :p
    I failed to run one ground wire that in turn was causing a voltage difference in the step/dir signals.
    Instead of sitting high at 5vdc they where -7.35 :eek:

    That signalled me to check my wiring again :brb:

    Time to configure the micro step setting in my drivers do some calculations and then it's motor tuning time in Mach3 :D

    Here it is moving really well :D
    In the clip I'm simply jogging it around :)

    I have a little more fine tuning but I think I have the main issues I had all sorted :thumbsup:

    I don't know though. I think I would find that QUIET buzz annoying after a while. :duh:
    Sounds like you're running Nema 1.5's on batteries there. :D

    ****! That's an awful high bar to aim for. :nailbite:

    That buzzing is do to electrical interference.
    Things will sound better after I get it properly installed in a box and proper wiring ;)
    When the spindle fires I don't think I'm going to be worried about the sound lol

    It is clarity-quad 4 delco wire
    Part number # 69040/2

    It is used for high quality stage mic's
    It has great shielding properties and star breaded for low noise :)
    Comes in 4 and 6 conductor
    I lucked out on a half roll through my local surplus store
    Same kind of stuff cncrouterparts makes their cables from ;)
