Retrofitting a 1986 Maho MH400E
I will use the MAHO 28X2-4 pin from relay board to feed motion.enable pin on linuxcnc so the controller knows if something went wrong.

In my approach I have described what happens in previous post.
Is there a standard (or mainstream approach) to describe what is the proper behavior of a machine to the estop and power boutons.

Yeah I picked up on that as well. I see from my notes...
24VDC: the field power is also available on MAHO terminal strip 28X3. There are three 24VDC buses, but two are powered through the E-Stop relays. You need the mesa cards powered at start up to enable LinuxCNC to connect to all pins. Therefore, you need to connect to as follows
TB2-1 -- 204 – 24VDC
TB2-8 - 201 – GND
Come on guys , what is the latest .
Really need some more Maho progress reports.
Make it up if you have to. I am starting to get withdraw shakes, it's been so/too long..
Don't want to hear about the shop now being too hot.
I know LIFE tends to get in the way -- at least a photo of the garden with the Maho in the background. What the heck it's summer -- you-all can work all night without fingers freezing to the cold metal.
Probably out on Maho beach with a dead cell phone and don't even know what day it is !
...then yesterday I cranked up the 3D printer and started printing the pattern for the lathe faceplate...
....and BAMM!!! JG is calling me out for my wayward priorities
Now I feel guilty. Cause I knew I needed to use the 3D printer to print out some new MAHO buttons since I rotated the switches, and can then continue with the user panel wiring.
