As we begin 2021, we have found ourselves in a situation where our lead-times have substantially increased due to COVID-19 pandemic-related issues.
Those issues combined with high demand and heavy shipping volume is resulting in a longer than normal delivery timeframes for many Tormach machines and accessories.
We are working diligently to resolve these issues and look forward to bringing our lead-times back to normal. Unfortunately, this is going to take some time.
As of now, we anticipate that these lead times will continue into the second quarter. We appreciate your patience during this time.

SPINDLE CONTROL (M03, M04, AND M05)

To start the spindle turning clockwise (forward) at the currently programmed speed, program: M03

To start the spindle turning counterclockwise at the currently programmed speed, program: M04

The speed is programmed by the S word.

To stop the spindle from turning, program: M05

It’s okay to use M03 or M04 if the spindle speed is set to 0; if this is done, the spindle won’t start turning. If later the spindle speed is set above 0, the spindle starts turning. It is permitted to use M03 or M04 when the spindle is already turning, or to use M05 when the spindle is already stopped.
