OK, dumb question on testing the pot adjustments...

Do I simply plug in the 12V power supply to the main board and test them while they are plugged into the main board?
Im not reading anything definitive, Putting it on the pots does nothing, I get odd readings from 0.2 to 0.6V when on 200mV but nothing when on 20V
I turned the pot slightly on one of the drivers and it didnt seem to make any difference.
What am I missing here? Do I have to have the steppers moving when I test ?

In this video he said 0.4 OHMS,,, not VOLTS.  Which one should I be measuring?
