There are some things I do not meddle with, and feed&spin at boot time is one of them. Yes, we KNOW there are some bugs in Mach3, including this area. We just avoid them.

Cheers

Yes, feed-rate override is dodgy as hell, I'm on v066 ;)

Its ok for a slight tweak while running but i always return it to 100% at shutdown.

Its not so bad <100% but not good >100%

 Just to make sure we are on the same page , I am talking about reducing the Rapid feed rate , not the commanded feed rate for the drill cycle .
