Simplest way would be to put M1 in the code where you want it to stop, when its ready to move again all you do is press start, If you knew the exact time you wanted a pause you could put G4 P** (** being time in seconds) and after that time had elapsed it would continue.

Ho many plunges/pauses would you be looking at in a typical programme?
How do you write the programme, if its with CAM it may be possible to get the CAM to add it automatically.

not sure if it would be possible or even practical but you may be able to use the macro pump. Adding a bit of code to pause or M1 when a given situation is seen shouldnt be that hard to do. I am fairly new to VB so maybe I am just talking through my arse.

If you will be present each time you plunge could you not then just press the feedhold button then when you want to go again you could press start?
