FAQs / Re: NEED HELP Keeping Spindle ON, or Pausing/Resuming Routine

Your point is well taken. I appreciate your concern for my safety. Life is a series of calculated risks. You're not considering my frustration level, nor the setup on my rig.

Might anyone have a solution to my query, on a purely hypothetical basis? Thanks.

FAQs / NEED HELP Keeping Spindle ON, or Pausing/Resuming Routine
« on: August 19, 2016, 01:05:32 AM »
I am new to routing/Mach3. I am running Mach3 in WinXP to a tabletop Chinese router. I have a need to trim two edges of a small, square circuit board. I have to trim hundreds of boards. It takes 5 seconds for my spindle to spin up, but only a about 10 seconds to run the routine. So, a lot of time is wasted waiting for my spindle to get to speed. When the spindle reaches Home it shuts off. Is there a way to simply keep the spindle ON? That's the best solution. Short of that, is there a way to start the routine and then pause and wait for a 1-click input to resume the routine? That way, the spindle could be spinning up while I'm changing out parts to be routed. I really appreciate anyone's suggestions. Thanks.
