Now, in setting it up in my .hal's, I can get pwmgen.1. out of p2 in 
order to drive Jon's pwm-servoamp, and I have setup both pwmgens in 
parallel, and I seem to be controlling spindir and spinena, but I am not 
seeing the analog out on hm2_5i25.0.7i76.0.0.spinout. Do I need to apply 
a ground on tb4-1, and some of the local 12volts to tb4-3 just to demo 
that its working?  It makes sense but I'd druther be safe by asking.

I can see the other pwmgen.1 on its p2 pin, so routing that to the 
pwm-servoamp in the G0704 will not be a problem. But the 6040 has a vfd 
and will use the spinout 0-10 volt analogue signal.

What I'm trying to do is set this up so essentially the same bit of hal 
stuff works for both machines and only the signal wiring in the control 
box is different.

One potential problem might be needing a delay between the enables and 
the boot module for the pwm-servo amp in case the opto's in the 
isolation are slow, but thats a bridge I'll have to cross when I get to 
it. I built the original boot module to bang it a bit harder, and 5 
times in each direction, so its probably enough.

Thanks Peter.
