    Hi everyone,

    I have been digging around all day on this one. Time to ask the H&M Grand Poobah collective!

    Trying to make Winter my "CNC Turn" project.
    • Mache in Mill mode runs fine to display RPMs.
    • Mach3 in Turn mode will NOT display anything.
    • In Mach3 Turn mode I have the same settings as Mill mode. Index pulse lights cycles as I turn in/out of reflection in Turn. I have tried various debounce values and have 0 in there for now. I'm at a loss for now.
    One item, maybe a clue? In Mill Mode, RPMs do not show up unless I have the Spindle CW button clicked. It highlights yellow and RPMs take off.
    In turn mode, I did try the 'reverse' option but again, I'm guessing and doing 4 different projects at once.

    13:39 mark of this Video. Good vid btw. Need to click the Spindle button on Turns screen! Will check tomorrow but I am 99% sure this is my issue.

    YEP, SOLVED. Press the BIG button called SPINDLE. :) Next up VFD control from MAch.
