If I understand correctly the Ethernet smooth stepper will not do rigid tapping ? Is it possibly a future function that will be added ?

Andy at Warp9 has said that rigid tapping is something that they are interested in doing but it will be a while before they complete it because there are higher priority requests currently being dealt with.
Your guess as to when is as good as mine  :)

Hi,
can you run your spindle as a C-axis, that is to say do you have position control of the spindle?

If so you can do rigid tapping and it does not require any special features of the controller.
