depends on the code you are using for probing.
Show us your code.

if you use an external Motion Controller like CSMIO or UC300 (both have two analog Outputs), you can control
spindle 2 and 3 via them (spindle 1 will be the Standard spindle).

via a customised M3 macro you can control the seperate spindles.

there will be different possibilties to let the macro know, witch spindle/spindles has to be turned on.

does Mach3 have an out-of-band axis/axes?

NO, out of my kowlege.

If more than one "analog" Output is needed, you have to use a external Motion Controller witch supports analog Outputs.

on a CSMIO (surprise surprise), you can set analog Output value easy via Basic script.

Show us your code, and we will see.

IMHO the only Chance you have (without using a Motion Controller witch supports analog outouts), is to use a PWM Signal,
and use M3 Ssomething (use the spindle Speed) for manipulating the PWM Signal.

you can wire your Limit Switches in series so that you get one pin free.

have a look here:

Nein das liegt nicht an den Macros, das liegt an dem Screenset.

Ich haben mal ein Liste angefügt, welche Schnellzugriffstasten bei Deinem Screenset was machen.
