what about a gecko driver could this work?   has anyone done this before.   ,  the 555 timer sounds promising but sounds above my head.

(jogging z axis while machine is cutting)              has anyone done this with sheetcam and mach 2 ? Not sure what the milling tab is..  i think mach 2 must be labeled as something else.. I tried all kind of box checking with no luck.. I don't have thc but i do have a z axis. right now i can jog the z axis just fine. but when i am cutting a part it just will not let me jog it at all..  i usally cut slow enough that i have plenty of time to adjust on the fly.. right now with it disconnected i turn the z motor by hand to adjust height..   please advise me  , is it time to  upgrade to make this work. mach 3 or invest in thc300?

maybe im not setting sheetcam right. or maybe i have a setting in mach 2 unchecked?

thinking about buying the THC300 how does it work ,, i use sheet cam too.. Where you able to make it work...  can you adjust the hight on your torch manually up and down if you want.. while it running a g code.. Did it take a long time to hook it up..
