    I just received my Optlaser for my Lead CNC. I have it all connected except where it connects to the Blackbox. It shows in the manual connecting to the tool head first 2 screws on the tool head connection. However this is where my relay is for my spindle to turn it on and off. Is there a way to have these both connected?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    You have to add a switch to direct the PWM signal between the relevant tools (Grbl only has one PWM output)
    See docs:blackbox:iot-and-laser [OpenBuilds Documentation]
