I'll help if I can, let me know of any settings I need to make, otherwise I'll just watch and learn.

Russ, you are testing with a licenced version I presume?

I will have to see if I can break it tomorrow on my machines as I know it always works for me but maybe that is because I think normally I would have previously been running the code so there would be a value in the DRO anyway.

Doubt step /dir control as I'm not using that and controling the vfd via a USB plugin (direct comms similar to modbus).  As Russ says the spindle speed setting is not updated in the DRO in mach either. Mines also licensed.

Ok I think I see what it is now, the RFH spindle start is issuing a M3 and as thats all its doing it will just start the spindle at whatever speed is in the DRO, it will be up to the operator to set the speed correctly in the DRO.
The reason I have never seen it is the DRO would always have the last commanded speed in it.

What might be an idea is in Rev4 there are a couple of extra boxes in the prep move, for example I would like to see a spindle direction option as I think the spindle just starts M3 when RFH, thats normally fine for a mill but can be a scary thing on a lathe when you realise the spindle is rotating the wrong way for your drill or whatever ;D Another thing may be a box to enter the spindle speed for the prep.

What you describe is exactly what I see here Hood, anxious to see what you find tomorrow.
The additions to the prep dialog would be good, but it might be best ... or as simple/simpler to just modify the RFH scan to include the direction and speed for the update. Then it wouldn't require any additional input, just click and go. It would then continue as expected.

Personally I think I would prefer the options but the click and go approach again would be OK, just have to hope something like that is done.
