Need idea for timed oiler
« on: May 25, 2020, 10:16:56 PM »
I haven't messed with my Mach 3 in a while.
There is an auto oiler, that is operated by a slow geared drive and contacts.
About every 20 minutes, it clicks on, and oils for 7 seconds????????
  I have an override button on the control panel that I hit during startup and when homing everything.

    Would I need to program a brain for something like that?
 Can you direct me to where I can find info on this.
Thanks a lot.

You can add code to the Macropump.m1s to turn it on and off.  Then you need to enable the macropump in config.
