4th Axis rough treatment

Post by JamZ00 » Fri 03 May , 2013 11:23 am

Hi All, This one is rather embarassing as its the result of rough treatment when removing the 4th Axis to free up room on the bed.
Now I have finished cutting my 2D stuff I have reattached the 4th Axis to the bed and the memory came back to me from when i disconnected the communication cable a few months ago with an ape like twisting pulling motion!!!!!

Needless to say it hasn't done the connections any favours and I now have 4 pairs of wires that should be connected to the contacts within the plug. I'm pretty sure I can get it all back together again as nothing is actually broken but would like some info on:

How the wires are paired
Configuration of the contacts
