HJ,
Here are some pics & info that might help. There are 5 switches, all identical, pics below. Also a drawing showing locations and designation of each switch and drawing of bottom of control box ports where cables from switches plugin. All you need to do is run a cable from each port on the bottom of the control box to the correct switch location. The cables may be different lengths so make sure you have a cable that's the correct length. You'll notice the X & Y switches have a + & - switch. Here is the location for those files.

Dang John, Grandma was slow, but she was old!

I'm ready to see that thing in action. Christmas is just around the corner.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Like fine spirits -- quality takes time. And I'm a grandpa and old.

Nobody wants to see it covered in dust more than I do!!

Darn cables and electronic stuff.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

After conversations and emails with MoHawk (he's been a great help+) I finally decided to get started. Coded all the cables with colored tape, watched the CNCRP video about 6 times, used MoHawk's directions and did it. The real problem was knowing how the cables ran over, under, and thru the machine - and still connected to the control box with enough length. Wasn't too bad once I got the hang of it.



Now I gotta hang the boxes, get the cables laid out in the track evenly, make sure they're out of the way, and just, in general, clean things up.



Also, hung a couple of Led lights that Costco has on sale occasionally. Let's me see my screwups better.

Taking a slight break in the action.

New grandson arrived Friday morning and having trouble getting the Mach 3 to cooperate. Something screwy in the licensing.

Will be back at it this week I hope.

Congratulations on the "new" grandson. Can never have too many grandkids.

Don't know if I would be much help with your Mach issues, but let me know.

Did you move the Lic file into the Mach3 folder before you opened the program?

Think this might be the "last" one. But it's the closest and only one that's local. Grandma's ecstatic.

My computer guy is trying to figure it out before he gives me the machine. Says he'd rather have it right from the start -- so I don't bother him later. Those computer nerds can be so rude!!
