    Hey guys,
    First thread and build.. and it's not on a good note unfortunately.
    So I bought my OX build and TinyG a few weeks back now and had everything working with a few bugs which I will also post about later, but tonight I had just copied another users Ox/TinyG settings in via Chillipeppr and started jogging my X axis and then I hear my USB disconnect... I look over- the fan is still going hard but all the lights are now off on the TinyG... 24v still on the input and a big 12v fan sucking air through the board. I checked all ICs and all cool to touch and nothing shorted.
    Does this happen much?
    All I had done today was
    - set up my Touch plate (which I need to discuss in another thread)
    - added an external reset momentary switch to the outside of the TinyG box
    - put a 3v solid state relay off the SPin/Gnd pins to switch a 12V relay to turn on the spindle when activate
    - Upped max speeds on all axis
    The latter is when this happened and just like when I first powered the whole kit up the stepper would start to run then seem to jam up hard and make bad noises? This happened on all axis when I had really fast settings in at the start. What causes that?
    Any way any help would be much appreciated.
    Mitch
