Well after making the statement we had found the problem that is only partly true! While the 4 axis version worked fine, I cannot use the 4 axis version and the newest version of Mach 4 using the 6 axis screen we still have this problem but it is only one of the problems related to a M3 or M03 call. I have also discovered that even within gcode when the M3 S???? will lock the gcode and it will not advance past the M3 S???? Doesn't matter what actual speed is ask for either!

Currently I have to hit the M5 button on the spindle ccw tab and then immediately hit the M3 button to start the spindle again! So for a work around I take the M3 and spindle speed out of the code all together and use the M3 button on the ccw tab to start the spindle manually. The M5 will excute perfectly at the end of the program!
