How do you have it connected? If you have it connected a single relay then you just need to write a macro and place it in the macro folder for the profile you use.
 If you name the macro M80 (presuming you dont already have a M80 macro) then when you call M80 from your code it will turn the welder on. You will also need a macro to turn it off and you could call that M81 for example.

If for instance your relay is connected to Output 4 then your macro to switch on would read

ActivateSignal (OutPut4)    ' Switches on via output 4

For the Off macro it would be

DeActivateSignal (OutPut4) ' Switches off output 4

Hood - where can I get a list of the Mach3  Visbasic commands your have just quoted. I know a few that I have picked up from all the various tutorials, but I haven't come across a full list of them yet

Not me driving the engine - I'm better looking.
