    I think so, you have to set the HotKeys as I recall.

    Hi,
    if jogging is enabled it is certainly possible to jog....wouldn't be much of a CNC solution if it didn't.

    I believe Mach3 demo jogs exactly the same as the licensed one. Just install the program, configure ports/pins and use the arrow keys for jogging. No hotkeys required.

    Or did you mean something else like using a jog wheel controller?

    Thanks for your reply, my problem is I bought a 3040T machine but received no instructions on setup. Found a YouTube video how to configure so did all it said but nothing moves. Running Mach 3 demo on windows 7 32 bit. ????????????????????????????

    As I understand, "3040T machine" can mean pretty much anything in Aliexpress-speak, so the video you found is not necessarily relevant.
    If it has a USB controller, make sure you have the correct Chinese USB driver for that particular controller. Ask the seller where to download one if it did not come with the machine.
