What type of spindle? How does it connect to Mach? Do you use M3/M4/M5 macros or is it just via the outputs on the spindle setup page?

Then sounds like you have the outputs set the wrong way round, just put whatever is set for M3 in the M4 box and M4 in the M3.

Go to Config menu then Ports and Pins then Spindle Setup and you will see the boxes for M3 and M4. If that doesnt change things then attach your xml and I will have a look to see how your spindle is set up.
