I don't see any serious errors in the log.

Most common reasons I have seen for no motion in step/dir systems are:

1. Wiring errors
2. Step lengths too short
3. Drives disabled by wiring the "Drive Enable" pins (these are actually "Drive Disable" pins

Note: You would get a following error if you move/jog and there is no communication

This was my issue. I can now jog the X Axis. 

Holy Cow!!! this has taken days/weeks to see a motor spin. 
Thanks for getting me over the first hurtle. Now I need to get things tuned correctly. 

I'm sure there will be more brick walls to bang my head against though. 
I'll post a video on my YT channel soon now that I have something actually moving.  Maybe others can benefit from my headaches. :)

I'm about to order a MESA board for CNC conversion of a 4 axis knee mill.

I'm leaning towards the 7i95t.

Is there any reason not to order and use this board?

I did a CNC conversion in the past using Mach, this will be first time with Linux. I'm very comfortable with electronics but have next to zero experience with Linux and have zero experience with LinuxCNC

Hard to find in stock.
Otherwise it is magnificent, i have one installed in a huge plasma machine in use daily for exactly 1.1 year, went there today it was in use, it is never powered off.
No issues, ever.
