feed rate changes are typed in as

G01 F10 (text goes in parentheses and G01 and F# alone on line normally )

once you set a speed it stays until you change it, there is no need for it on every line

G0 ( went to max speed)

G01 f5 ( now feed rate slower )

the G01 and F# normally are on the same line together then the move is placed under it

here is an example of moving down z cutting grooves...

X.4 (clears material)

z-2.0 (goes to grove location)

G01 F2 (sets slow plunge rate )

x.28 (plunges in groove )

G0 ( changes speed )

x.4 (retracts to safe distance )

z-2.2 (moves to next location in Z for groove )

G01 F2 (sets slow plunge rate )

x.28 (plunges in groove )

G0 ( changes speed )

x.4 (retracts to safe distance )

z-2.4 (moves to next location in Z for groove )

G01 F2 (sets slow plunge rate )

x.28 (plunges in groove )

G0 ( changes speed )

x.4 (retracts to safe distance )

I hope that helps
