Thank you for your help,

it´s an Emco VMC 100

unfortunately the pokeys plugin doesn't map the pins to mach3 - so SwapAxis doesnt work.
The "help" from Pokeys was - "read the manual" ( thank you pokeys ! )

then I tryed Mach4 software.
it was easy to setup the Servo as an ordinary axis (A)
set up the servo as axis OB1 and the connect the spindle to the motor OB1 - spindle working!

the plan now is to switch the axis with a mechanical relais A(axis) <-> OB1 (spindle)
the rest should be less problematic (hopefully?!)

I try to exchange the control of an old Emco mill with automatic toolchange.
The mill spindle is driven by an DC Servo with step / dir control.

The spindle moves the tool change wheel - so it is necessary to have the posibility to use the spindle for positioning.

The spindle works as an ordinary axis (axis A).

So my problems are at the moment:
how to get the DC servo work as a spindle?
I tryed SwapAxis(3, 6) but I didn´t get the spindle working

I would be glad for any help
