Hi

Below is a simple square that I want to run as a test part. I am using Camworks Professional and they have a Mach 4 post processor. When I try running this program it stops at N4.

N1 G00 G17 G20 G49 G90
N2 T01 M6
N3 S11764 M3
N4 G00 G54 X4.3242 Y-1.9654
N5 G43 H01 Z1.

N9 G01 Y-2.1 Z.0992 F20.
N10 Y-4.225 Z.09
N11 X-.025 Z.0714

Blah Blah you don't care

Is there something I am missing on this? Thanks

General Mach Discussion / Spindle Setup

Hi

I am setting up my machine I built and am having issues turning the spindle on. When I press "Spindle CW/Stop" the spindle will turn on for a few seconds and then turn off and the Enable starts flashing. It has this in the log file:
