Place the attached file in your main Mach3 folder then load it. I have changed the name to Peterb1024.set so that it wont interfere with anything, just load it from the view menu as mentioned above.

Did that changed screens and it now zeros on the axis button without moving. We still have the zero all button but this started moving the axis again so altered as suggested by tweakie and now works great--everything zeros and nothing moves.

Not sure what the dedicated Sieg screen was really for, text size in g code display now smaller font but even that is better as you can see more of the  code.

Final thing is the spindle speed, we can only get 3500 no matter what we do so suspect it needs something toggling. We are running the 5000rpm program and it is a 5000rpm machine.

Thanks for your pateince in getting us this far.

Or change to Pulley 1 on Settings  page as you are set for Pulley 4 and its max is set to 3500.

Briil, thats it, changed to pulley 1 then spindle steps to 188 and speed now measured with tacho at 5000rpm. The SRO is showing 250% at 5000rpm and 100% is 2000rpm so not sure what that means? Is that another tweak somewhere?

Not sure how these kind of spindle drives work in Mach, I only have servo spindles but I would have thought SRO should be 100% unless you override. Will see if I can find something in the xml but maybe its just the way it is with that type of spindle control.

What kind of motor is the spindle? Do you have a link to any documentation on it?
