  1. Hi,

    I have the top left board and when trying to get the tool sensor to work the Y Axis turns magenta.
    It’s setup on the right pin but how do I map it in cnc usb controller program?




    1. Hi, Is your Y axis connected to the Y axis output?…if your Y axis turns magenta, what is the tool sensor doing? – where is it plugged into?……which USB CNC controller program are you using!…..


      1. Hi,

        The Y axis is connected to the Y axis on the board, It mills fine.
        When i tap the alligator clip to the block nothing happens with the Y axis or the Z axis.
        They just keep going and don’t set to 0


  2. HI, i need some help with a jp-3163b board…
    exists some way to reset this board? it does not move the Y and Z axis, only X and A rotary moves
    i have a usb to db25 serial cable to connect the pc to controller
    I disconnected the cable, and reconnected and it stopped working
