    Is there a way to synchronize the 2 x axis motors using Blackbox? I am a new user and using a new machine. Having trouble getting the X-axis stepper motors to run simultaneously.

    How have you wired up your Dual X motors?
    What machine are you running? Does it also have Dual Y motors?

    Dual X motors Y2 reversed direction. I am suggesting to release the belts and command motors in MDI to test with no load . The machines X & Y "V-rollers" 8mm offset nuts were re-tensioned to remove slop. The Yaxis responds responds perfectly now. The X axis rails are on a wood base board and Y gantry can be moved freely. (y axis gantry rail could be more rigid) .

    The X axis jitters and seems to torture the belts losing all counting from the motor.
    How new and how tight should the belts be?

    Are there jumper settings within the "BlackBox" for these MT-2303HS280-AW-OB opposing.

    Any thoughts? we sincerely thank You
