i mean a outside hex screw with Long nut.
this would the screw allow to go up when you
insert new tool and you don't have to lift the wrench.

what would be to use a hex bolt insteed of torx,
in combination with a long nut it would allow the
screw to go into the nut without any pressure on
the screw.

just thinking.

Hello Frank,

on a first look to your XML everthing seams to be ok.
you have configurated b-axis as follows:

dir port 1 pin 9
step port 1 pin 8
step's per = 8000
velocity = 79,98
accel =20

Looks like it should move.

can you please post a link or file with the discription of the smoothsteper you are using.

pin9/8 are often used for dublicate funtionality (relays)

and what is about:

-doing a new refernce ?
-knowing where you have stopped your gcode file (power off)

what you are planning is not done with pushing a button and running a script.

I  know that there is a Start and stop Macro, I already have the "M6Start" file,

this is a Standard Start macro. you will need a machine specific one, like i have done here:
http://www.machsupport.com/forum/index.php/topic,36417.0.html

BTW the search function of the Forum is not so hard to understand ;)

Do i also need a stop Macro? or is it in my Start macro already?

the stop macro is only to return where the tool Change started.

also I think I need  to add some Tab pages to my Mach3, Do you have the links for them?

ok the only Thing, i think, is that you please read a Little bit more about basic's  of ATC

My Spindle should have the required Solenoid, I am planning to use CC (Chinese) or HSD (Italian)

that is a Point YOU have to figure out.
