Chuck! thats great to hear.Just a quick update. The DB25 cable was delivered a couple of days ago. I got the motors, the Gecko controller, cables and the power supply all hooked up. Loaded up Mach3 and got everything configured. The steppers all respond and move correctly to the Mach3 commands. Even loaded up the G-Code file to print my name and ran it. Unfortunately, I still haven't received my X & Y timing belts (Aarrgghh!). So, even though the motors spin, the table doesn't move... Wish I'd ordered the belts sooner. Now that the conversion is virtually done, the waiting is killing me!
Quick note: when you get the belts on remember that the arrow keys on the keyboard are which way the tool is supposed to move, not the table. That means when you hit the left arrow the table should move right. When you hit the arrow to move toward you, the table should move away from you. When you arrow left and the table moves right its the same as the tool moving left.
