Mach4 forgets the spindle speed after stopping a program
« on: April 30, 2020, 06:23:14 PM »
Is there a way to avoid that mach4 forgets the current spindle speed setting after stopping a program. Sometimes I need to stop a program somewhere into it, and when I then start up the program again (from where I stopped it), the spindle will start at its default lowest speed.  In order to fix this, I need to issue an S command on the MDI every time before starting within a program. This annoys me, as I see no reason why the spindle speed is reset at stop.

Hi,
if you use <FeedHold> rather than <Stop> then yes its possible.

Look in Mach's Control plugin, in the General Setting tab, there you will find settings to determine what happens to the spindle when a <FeedHold>
is encountered.
