M6Start.m1s contents gets deleted and this code gets put in the folder

SafeZ = Get Safe Z Value
Code "G53 G00 Z" & SafeZ 'Goto the safe Z location
Code "M99999" ' Call Macro M99999

M6End.m1s contents gets deleted

Create a new file labled M99999.m1s and place the following lines
tool = GetSelectedTool() 'Load the tool number
SetCurrentTool( tool ) 'Set the tool
Code "G43 H" & tool 'Set the height

Complete = Question ("Change to tool number" & tool)

Does any of this look wrong?  if so what.  I would also like to add in an auto spindle shut down for tool change and turn back on ofter tool change, auto coolant stop  for tool change and turn back on after tool change, and move table to home position for tool change.

I have the original Industrial hobbies webpages printed pertaining to a semi auto tool change.  Is this some thin you would be interested in having posted?  I only have them in black and white but the info is there and clear.  I would have to scan all the printed pages and find a way to bundle them in one form.  I found some of the old mach2 scripting very cool and would like to implement it with a few changes.

wow...thanks for the input.  What are some of the limitations?  I am looking for something to run my minimills, minilathes, Industrial Hobbies mill, and 12x36 grizzly lathe.

Is there any solid solutions for interfacing USB instead of parallel ports to Mach?  I ask as I am finding more and more usb and less and less parallel ports.  If there is not a solid solution to that is there a way to create a stand alone parallel port box to work with a usb computer?  I used the SIIG II B5 5 volt double parallel port card and would like to have a laptop hook up.
