add 50% jog speed button to screen
« on: December 12, 2012, 08:50:01 PM »
hi all. has anyone added a button to the main screen to  make the jog speed slow to 50%? like click on the button and the dro for the jog speed would be set to 50%. another button to return to 100%. i change it often for manually parting off leftover sections of sheet with the plasma.

You can use 2 buttons or 1 button and toggle back and forth.

I think another option to accomplish same thing would be to set your jog speed to 50% and use the shift override for full speed.

set up 4 buttons. each labeled 1/8", 3/16", 1/4", 1/2". and a 5th for reset to 100%.
