Re: Baldor Nextstep Step and Direction pins - 96way connecto

mainly it is just as a test function before worrying about which software will suit the jobs best, if this thing even works. who knows, it may need a complete overhaul for all i know and i did not get it at a garage sale price so... not looking to dump a ton of money into it before even knowing if i...
