    Bang my head on this one for days,

    Finally add a laser to the setup, (pwm>spindle)

    It works, but the M5 doesn't want to do his job :(

    Mach4 keep hanging on the M5 (after a stop & run it does work...till the next M command)

    this works: laser goes on & stop's after 5s
    S500
    M3
    G4 P5000
    M5

    But when there is code in between = no go
    Same goes on with the S command (only works once)

    I can run a normal fusion 360 contour, everything goes well till the M5.

    i guess this problem is there from the beginning , i turn on the spindle manuaal.

    Grts,

    Mach4_mill_6 axis

    (also tested some laser programs where u can set the m3 once, but then the S command stop the gcode)

    Finally after update all the programs (pokey/a new mach4) it's working.

    works now on M3 and M4 stop M5

    gcode runs the full code now.

    Tried quick the ob software, but was shooting dots instead of a nice line :)

    yeah! :)
