Re: TB6560 Stepper Driver Board

Hello, I don't know, if I am right here, but I'll try to place my question: Is there a complete wiring diagram for the TB6560 with limit switches, power supply, fuse and relay etc. to use with Mach3. I've searched this forum, posted my questions in an old thread :( and searched the internet but I o...

Re: TB6560 Stepper Driver Board

I am not familiar with the differences between the TB6560 and the TB6600 other then the number is 40 larger :mrgreen: I would assume the 6600 is a newer version and seems to be more expensive so my guess is that it is a better chip. That being said, in my opinion, buying electronics direct from chi...

Re: TB6560 Stepper Driver Board

I am using individual TB6560 boards without any issues so far. I do not have an large # of hours logged on the machine but it has been solid for me so far. Only issue I had last time was with my homing switches not tripping correctly which is unrelated to the stepper drivers. Take a look the electri...

Re: Polycarbonate V-wheels! :D

Yeah, I don't know why OpenBuilds say that PC is better than POM, because it isn't, but you'll also notice that those V-wheels are for V-slot only -- they don't have a V groove at all. I agree with the comments here that delrin is better then polycarbonate -- at least with the delrin and polycarbon...

Re: Tb6560, worth it?

Are you talking $10 per driver or $10 total. $10 total seems too cheap. $10 per driver (you would need 4 drivers) sounds more reasonable. I used single axis tb6560 controllers from e-bay. I went with the single axis as I figured it would be inexpensive to replace one drive if it went bad on me. Not ...

Re: Touch off issues - I'm sure I'm doing something wrong

I hate to admit I did the exact same thing on my first try - only with a sharpie pen. Mashed the felt tip quite well! Glad you got it figured out!

Re: project exceeds length of shapeoko 2 (Y axis)

Since the Shapeoko 2 full kit has a 11.5" cutting limitation, what's the best way to cut a sign that is longer, say 16"? I suspect that I need to divide the project in half and make two jobs. I'm just concerned about the zeroing in for the second job. Any tips or tricks? I have not used it yet, but...

Re: Pictures of finished machines

Glad to see you're not experiencing any interference, which the concern of has kept me from doing anything similar. Just as a another "data point" I also run the power for the router through the drag chain with the stepper and limit switch wires and have not had any issues as of yet with it. Steppe...
