Just another thought, you do have the macro in the correct folder dont you? example if you have a custom turn profile there will be a folder in the main macro folder with the name of that profile, thats where you want the M6Start.m1s

Thank you for the help.what worry`s me is that i do not get any output on output 4. I am using 2 paralel card`s and u know they are both woring because i had my limit swithes connected to them to test the cards. when I do a tool change nothing happens to the output but the tool change dro does go to the new tool.I am using port 2 pin 2 and i know it is working because i tested it with the coolant pump on off. Any other suggestions.

If you open Mach and then go to the Operator menu and choose VB editor. In the editor type in
ActivateSignal(OutPut4)
and then press the green arrow, your output should now be active, to turn it off again change the above to
DeActivateSignal(OutPut4) and press the green arrow it should turn off again.

Not sure if you saw my last post regarding the loacation of the M6Start.m1s, also is it named as that or do you still have M6StartGraham.m1s? If you do then that could well be the problem.

You definitely have output 4 enabled in ports and pins?

OK your problem may well be that you have both your Z axis and Output 4 set to the same pin (port 1 pin 6)
