We finally have got lightburn working more or less perfectly on our K40-s Thanks for those who helped.
One final query, in the end we used a mks makerboard with grbl -LPC and we want to be able to home it properly.
Does anyone know the best end stop switches to use and the type push to make or push to break or a 3 wire with Ground, positive and Signal as the board has this on it.
On one machine we have maker block end stops taken out of a old frame and they seem to work by using the signal and ground contact on the board and when you push the switch it makes contact and homes fine but
I cant get hold of these end stops so I was wondering what to use on my machine and whether to use all 3 pins in the control board.
Do you need special end stops with these sort of boards, I have wired up a couple of normal roller end stops and use just 2 pins of the 3 pins on the switch push to break and it sort of works but not properly as after a two or 3 times testing it go-s from the move window to the console window and below in the laser window where it says ready when you push the switch which stops the carriage it says disconnected release and it says ready and carriage is ready to go again so it would home buy doing it with these, I just dont think they are the right switches because of the move to console thats going on.
any ideas please. thank you
